Rijeka Airport: Traffic on the Rijeka-Munich route is not yet satisfactory, but we expect growth from year to year

first_imgThe year-round Rijeka-Munich route is already operating, ie it has continued uninterruptedly after the summer season, they point out from Rijeka Airport, and currently Croatia Airlines can fly to Munich every Thursday and Sunday with a Dash 8 Q400 aircraft. “The current traffic on this line is not very satisfactory since the average occupancy of aircraft in the past winter months was only 25%. However, this occupancy should be taken with a large amount of reserve since it is only the first year of this line during the winter, and potential passengers are not yet sufficiently aware of its existence, ie with winter lines it is normal that the habit of traveling during the winter is formed only after 3-4 years of turnover. The same can be seen from our experience with the year-round line to Cologne, which was introduced last winter, and this year continued with a change of destination to Düsseldorf, but these two cities are only 40km away, so it can be said that they are the same market. ” stand out from Rijeka Airport. The opportunity is there, let’s use it. If the route is not profitable in 2-3 years, it will be canceled, which gives a clear signal to other airlines. Namely, last year the average occupancy of aircraft on the line Rijeka – Cologne was 40%, while this year the percentage has risen to 55%. These are funds that help establish the year-round Rijeka-Munich airline. Until now, Rijeka has been connected to Munich via Croatia Airlines on Thursdays and Sundays from October 28.10.2018, 30.3.2019. to March 2018, 2019, and in accordance with the new financial resources, the mentioned line continued during XNUMX as well as in XNUMX, so Kvarner is connected by a year-round line with Munich. Rijeka Airportcenter_img The decision of the Tourist Board provided additional funds for the implementation of strategic marketing campaigns in emitting markets in 2019 for advertising in cooperation with Croatia Airlines and the Kvarner Tourist Board, which provides funds for this cooperation in the same amount as the CNTB.  By the way, after last year’s record season in which 30% growth was achieved in passenger transport, four new lines were opened at Rijeka Airport in 2019, and new lines are being opened. “In 2019 For now, we have confirmed the arrival of 4 new airlines: TUI, Volote, Lufthansa and Air Serbia, which will fly to 3 new destinations: London Gatwick, Marseille and Belgrade, and the already existing Munich. Belgrade will be another year-round line that will continue to operate after the summer season. Negotiations are currently underway with some other companies, but so far we have not confirmed any other new lines. ” conclude from Rijeka Airport. What is the most difficult and most important is to open a direct flight with a destination, it is the first prerequisite for the growth of tourism, especially in the pre- and post-season. And having a direct year-round line with Cologne and Munich is a big plus for the whole of Kvarner. Now it is necessary to sit at the table, all tourism workers, and target the mentioned markets in order to create demand, and thus the profitability of the line. This is an opportunity not to be missed. Out of the tourist season, Kvarner can certainly build its opportunity through events, health, active and business tourism. last_img read more
