Turkish Airlines to bring in Croatia service

Two years ab initio planning to introduce flights to Dubrovnik, the Turkish Airlines would finally do so this summer, bringing their total number of places in former Yugoslavia. As per Dubrovnik Airport, the Turkish carrier would embark on scheduled operations from Istanbul on 27th June, with services to run till the 2016’s summer season end, on 29th October.

Even though the path is presently planned to work on a seasonal basis, the Turkish Airlines does not have summer-only places in their network, suggesting that the Dubrovnik service night be extended into the winter months. Flights are set forth to operate 4 times each week - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The company is still to put tickets on sale.

In 2014’s spring, the Turkish Airlines planned to include Dubrovnik to their route network along with 3 flights on a weekly basis - with much of the market supposedly being Sailors who will take yachts out on Croatian bareboat charters down the coast.

Dubrovnik Airport stated that the route comes as a result of drawn out negotiations which involved many representatives from Croatia's southernmost region.

The reports further added that the reason there were no flights to Turkey in the last few years was the introduction of visas for the citizens of Turkey that complicated their travel to Croatia. This came about when Croatia became a part of the European Union in 2013.

Still, there is place for great optimism due to the great number of Turkish tourists that might return to Dubrovnik now. In the year 2014, a total of 26.220 Turkish citizens went to Croatia, of which 17.398 passed their holiday on the coast.
