Throughout the year we promote Zagreb on different tourism and congress fairs around the world and we made sure the story of Zagreb is heard by all ages and visitors in different platforms – from advertorial to mobile advertising and billboards to radio campaigns,” Bienenefeld said.

“We also published a special webpage detailing all events – concerts, exhibitions, film and street shows, all united under the Zagreb Summer Tour 2016 brand. The campaign took some two years to perfect.”

A new video from the Croatian National Tourist Board highlights the country’s December tourism showpiece – Advent in Zagreb, total-croatia-news.com reports.

The beaches may be empty and the pristine Adriatic too cold for the more discerning bather, but tourism in Croatia continues throughout the year, with the December focus being largely on the capital city of Zagreb, as the Croatian National Tourist Board released its latest video on December 2, 2015, named simply ‘Advent in Zagreb’.

A relatively new tourism initiative, Advent in Zagreb is fast gaining in popularity, both locally and internationally, and organisers were given a boost last month, as website European Best Destinations included Zagreb as one of Europe’s top Christmas destinations.

“This year, we also expect tourism to grow in Zagreb during December. We know that the guests liked what they saw and experienced during the last Advent, and we believe we are going to have even more tourists, especially from neighboring countries and those countries which have direct flights to Zagreb. In addition to them, we expect journalists and tourist agents from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, USA, France, Russia and the Czech Republic”, said Zagreb Tourist Board director Martina Bienenfeld.

During the first ten months of this year, Zagreb recorded an increase of 12 percent in the number of arrivals and overnight stays compared to last year, with more than 889,000 arrivals and 1,530,000 overnight stays. “With such figures, in just ten months we have almost achieved the same results as in the whole of last year. If all goes well, we expect further good results in the future and even stronger positioning of Zagreb on the tourist map of Europe and the world”, Bienenfeld concluded.

Croatia’s Zagreb Airport welcomed its millionth passenger for the year on Friday, eight days ahead of 2014. As a result, the airport handled 88.948 travellers so far this month, www.balkans.com. reports.

The millionth passenger, Ivana Biscan, came off a Croatia Airlines flight from Frankfurt.

“I am delighted to welcome Zagreb Airport’s millionth passenger in 2015, especially since the figure was achieved eight days ahead of last year. These results are a group effort and testament to the growing passenger numbers which have been recorded since the start of the year. During the first five months of 2015 we registered cumulative growth of 8.5% compared to the same period last year”, the airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, Isabelle Dubois, said.

The millionth passenger received a gift voucher from the airport and two return tickets from Croatia Airlines to a destination within its network.
The million passenger mark was achieved following a solid performance by the airport in May. During the month, Zagreb welcomed 235.133 travellers, an increase of 8% compared to last year.

The airport also saw its number of operated flights grow, from 3.512 last May, to 3.724 operations this year, up 6%. During the first five months of the year, Zagreb Airport handled 911.052 passengers, an increase of 8.5%, positioning itself as the second busiest airport in the former Yugoslavia. In addition, the number of flights operating to and from the airport grew by 8.7% to 16.124 operations.

This month, SkyGreece Airlines will launch transatlantic flights from Toronto to the Croatian capital, while start-up Air Croatia hopes to resume operations from Zagreb to four destinations.

Foreign carriers have generated the majority of the airport’s passenger growth so far this year. Croatia Airlines Sales and Marketing Director, Ivan Druzeta, said,

“We are glad to have carried Zagreb Airport’s millionth passenger on board our flight. During the first five months, Croatia Airlines has seen its passenger numbers grow by 1% compared to the same period last year, with a 3% increase in passengers on scheduled international services”.

Since the beginning of the summer season, Swiss International Air Lines launched daily flights to Zagreb, while several other carriers have boosted their frequencies to the city.

On the other hand, LOT Polish Airlines will temporarily suspend its operation to Zagreb starting July 1, as a result of its restructuring program and European Union regulations.

The service is scheduled to resume on January 2, 2016 reports Ex-YU Aviation News

Zagreb

De nesten endeløse bil- og bussturene for reisende mellom #Sofia i #Bulgaria og #Zagreb i #Kroatia kan nærme seg slutten, da #Air #Serbia planlegger å åpne en direkterute mellom de to hovedstedene, skriver den bulgarske avisen Standart. Det har ikke vært flyforbindelser mellom Sofia og Zagreb på flere år, og de fleste flyvninger mellom landene går via #Wien, noe som forlenger og fordyrer reisen, så derfor har mange brukt buss eller bil i stedet.
