Travellers from the UK and Germany who plan to visit Pula in Istria for holiday this year will be offered more flight connections to the city, Istria Tourist Board announced on its website.
Low-cost airline Jet2.com will be introducing direct flights from Manchester to Pula from May 2012. The airline will operate the route once a week, on Saturdays, from May 19th to October 6th, 2012.
Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will continue to offer flights from London Stansted to Pula from 27th March 2012. The airline will continue with its flights to Frankfurt (Germany) and Brussels (Belgium), connecting these cities with Pula as before. Other great news for travellers is the Ryanair’s new route to Pula from the Norwegian capital Oslo in 2012.
German national carrier Lufthansa will introduce, for the first time, direct flights from Munich to Pula in May. Lufthansa will fly between Pula and Munich once a week, on Saturdays, from May 5th to October 13th, 2012.
The Istria Tourist Board is more than satisfied with Jet2.com's and Lufthansa's new direct flights to Pula. As the most visited tourist region in Croatia, Istria takes pride in continual development of new experiences for travellers, and is keen to promote itself as a unique European destination of lifestyle and gourmet tourism.
Over the past few years, the overall tourist offer of the region improved with the opening of luxury and boutique hotels and wellness centres, while the county’s camping sites have won prestigious awards. All this, paired with more air connections to Pula, has made Istria an attractive destination for travellers from large European cities.
Istria Tourist Board officials are currently negotiating with other European air carriers, with an aim of connecting Pula with other cities including Paris, Edinburgh, Hannover, Belgrade, Warsaw, Krakow and others.
