Cheap Flights to Pula
After successful cooperation last year, Pula Airport has reached a new agreement with the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair – as of spring this year, cheap flights to Pula from London and Dublin will once again be available. Another agreement has been reached with the German low-cost airline Germanwings – as of May, flights from Pula to Cologne will be available, and perhaps to Stuttgart later on.
In addition to the agreements reached for the said destinations, Pula Airport is still negotiating with Scandinavian countries, Slovakia and Czech Republic, and they also plan to offer flights to certain Spanish cities and Belgrade.
The director of Pula Airport pointed out that one of the objectives of the flights is to provide passengers with point to point flight options instead having to fly cheap via Italy.
All these projects require improvements of the Airport’s technical status and efforts to improve the infrastructure. They also plan to raise the level of passenger comfort with maximum government aid, and make numerous reconstructions on the runway, the platform and the airport building. The airport management believes the passenger safety and traveling quality are very important, and that the airport will be much more competitive on the market after the said works.
In 2007, over 385 000 passengers traveled via Pula Airport, which is 30 percent more as compared to 2006. In 2008, they expect ten percent more passengers than in 2007.
After Ryanair’s flights to London start on 1 April, and to Dublin soon afterwards, flights to Cologne will be offered as of 1 May. The Cologne flight season will last seven months, with flights available twice a week, Thursdays and Sundays.
