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

Lampard could face West Ham

first_imgFrank Lampard has an outside chance of recovering from injury ahead of Manchester City’s visit to another of his old clubs West Ham on Saturday. Press Association Meanwhile, it has emerged that Manchester City’s new state-of-the-art training centre could be used by Lampard’s club New York City FC for a pre-season camp in January. That could benefit City by allowing the midfielder to extend his loan spell at the Etihad deeper in to the new year than was first envisaged. The new MLS franchise is part-owned by City’s owner Sheikh Mansour and the new Etihad Campus in Manchester, built at a cost of £200million, is one of a number of options for New York City as a base for pre-season training. Sources say that Lampard’s loan spell will play no part in any decision of the venue for the training camp, however. Lampard was voted City’s player of the month for September by fans and has scored a number of important goals for the club. He also won a penalty against Tottenham last weekend. City boss Manuel Pellegrini said last week he was not surprised by how well Lampard has been performing. “For me it is maybe not a surprise because I know his quality,” said the City manager. “When you are the age of Frank Lampard you are not able to play three games in a week but when you have so great a player, you can resolve a lot of problems that we have during the game and I think that Frank is doing these duties at this moment. I am very happy with him.” center_img The 36-year-old missed the Champions League trip to CSKA Moscow after being carried from the field on a stretcher against Tottenham last Saturday, but his injury is not a serious one. It is understood he remains a doubt for the West Ham game with a thigh muscle injury but if he does miss the match he should be back for next week. last_img read more

Bengals owner wants Andy Dalton to prove himself before offering extension

first_img“I think it’s a good year for (Dalton) to show like he can, like we think he will,” Brown told Cincinnati.com. “After he re-establishes himself we would want to get together with him and see if we can extend it. “I think Andy is a good player and that he will rebound off last year. He was hurt. We lost so many other pieces. It fell apart, but if he’s healthy and we stay healthy enough, I have confidence in him.” The Bengals should be improved on offense this season, with new head coach Zac Taylor known for his offensive schemes. Taylor expressed confidence in Dalton this week.“He can handle everything,” Taylor said, via Bengals.com. “He can handle everything you want to do at the line of scrimmage, which is key. He can make all the protection calls, understands what we’re looking for in the run game. Andy is great in that regard. He’s got a high football IQ, he’ll be able to handle anything they throw at him.” The team is also eager for the return of A.J. Green, who missed seven games in 2018 with an injured toe. Green’s contract expires after 2019, but Brown said he is confident the team can reach a deal to extend the seven-time Pro Bowl wideout.”The price range for him will be something we can figure out, will come together,” Brown said. Bengals owner Mike Brown told reporters this week the team doesn’t plan to offer quarterback Andy Dalton a contract extension before the 2019 season.Instead, Brown is waiting to see if the 31-year-old veteran “re-establishes himself” this season. Dalton is under contract through 2020. Dalton, the Bengals’ second-round pick in the 2011 draft, started his first game as a rookie and has held the position ever since. He had 21 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and averaged 233 yards passing last season, but missed the final five games with a thumb injury. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Dalton is young enough to bounce back. That’s what Brown hopes to see. Related News Johnny Manziel leaves AAF game with head injury after tackle attemptlast_img read more
