13 new weekly connections this Summer
airberlin will fly to Croatia 14 times a week this summer – more services than ever before. “By introducing our new range of flights, we are responding to the increased demand for leisure travel to the Croatian Adriatic, and will therefore provide alternatives to destinations affected by current geopolitical developments”, says Merlin Schmischke, responsible for tourism sales at airberlin.
Romeo Draghicchio, Director of the Croatian Tourist Board, says: “We are delighted that airberlin has expanded its services to Croatia – this opens up new options for travellers from Germany. Most of the tourists visiting Croatia come from Germany – 2.3 million passengers a year – and the trend is growing.”
airberlin flies from Berlin, Dusseldorf and Vienna to Split on Wednesdays and Sundays. The seaside destination on the Adriatic can be wonderfully combined with a stay in romantic Dubrovnik. Germany’s second largest airline serves the Pearl of the Adriatic from Berlin and Dusseldorf on Saturdays. NIKI also flies from Vienna to Dubrovnik on Thursdays and Sundays. Pula, Rijeka and Zadar are new faces on the flight schedule, each with one service per week from Berlin and Dusseldorf. Like last year, airberlin will operate a weekly service from Nuremberg to Split.
Increasing numbers of tourists are discovering Croatia as a holiday destination. The multifaceted country on the Adriatic coast attracts visitors with numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites, including historic Dubrovnik. Nature fans also get their money’s worth: Croatia boasts eight national parks and eleven nature reserves. In addition, the Croatian coast is one of the richest coastlines in the world, with more than 1,200 islands.
Starting this year as part of its strategic realignment, airberlin is introducing Business Class to German and European flights. The first row in the cabin will be reserved for Business Class passengers. In addition to exclusive service, passengers will then enjoy particularly generous legroom, which at 32 inches (81 cm) exceeds the European Business Class standard. A further key feature of the new Business Class is the guaranteed empty middle seat, which provides a particular amount of exclusivity and personal space, even high above the clouds.
airberlin holidaymakers also benefit from many amenities with the topbonus Service Card, which costs just 119 euros per year and includes numerous advantages. Among other things, it offers an additional item of hand or sports baggage. A free seat reservation is also included for the cardholder and his/her whole family – or a fellow traveller.
