After 15 years easyJet is back to Rijeka Airport


After 15 years, on 3.5.2022. at 10:05h Rijeka Airport again welcomed
easyJet's aircraft on flight EZY8111 from London Gatwick which will operate
each Tuesday and Saturday until 29.10.2022. As we already announced, after 15
long years, one of the key airlines responsible for Rijeka Airport's record
traffic in 2006 and 2007, EasyJet, finally returned to Rijeka Airport. An interesting
fact is that Rijeka Airport back then was the first airport in Croatia which
served this great carrier.

EasyJet is one of the most important European low-cost carriers,
especially from the Great Britain market. It has an impressive fleet of 126
aircrafts A319, 168 aircrafts A320CEO, 20 aircrafts A320NEO, and 4 aircrafts
A321NEO and operates on over 150 airports in 35 countries connecting almost
1.000 destinations.

After many years of negotiations between Rijeka Airport and easyJet,
thanks to the exceptional effort and commitment of Rijeka Airport Management,
finally mutual consensus has been made. Ministry of the sea, transport and
infrastructure, Primorsko-goranska County, City of Rijeka, Opatija, Krk,
Crikvenica, Omisalj, representatives of hotels Jadran Crikvenica and Hilton
Rijeka, and the Tourist Board sector with its participants assured support for
promotional activities needed for best positioning Kvarner region on the
British market, where it's still pretty unknown. So with mentioned marketing activities
region will further encourage the development of the British market in our
region, and increase the number of arrivals from this market, which currently
accounts for less than 1% of total overnights in Kvarner.

At the welcome reception of this new/old airline at Rijeka Airport, an
inauguration ceremony was held without the traditional water salute in respect
of easyJet's sustainability program and the passengers were welcomed with small
gifts from the local Omišalj Tourist Board. EasyJet's representative, Russ
Smith, Airport Operations Contract Manager-Outstations and Regional safety
advisor, together with Vedrana Čubranić, Business Development Manager of Rijeka
Airport, cut the ribbon which symbolizes the official start of this long-term
cooperation from which many new routes can be expected in years to come.

Except for London Gatwick, easyJet will also operate the route from
Berlin to Rijeka and vice versa, each Tuesday and Saturday for a period from
28.6. until 2.9.2022.
