Four new low cost carriers arrive at Pula Airport
By the end of 2007, the four additional low cost air carriers will introduce their flights to Pula Airport.
These are the German companies Germanwings and TUIfly, the Hungarian air carrier Wizzair and the Danish Sterling.
Direct connections to Pula are currently maintained by three low cost air carriers that operate during the peak tourist season – the Irish company Ryanair which links Pula to London and Dublin, Norwegian Air Shuttle and the Scottish Fly Globespan. These three companies will run their last flights to Pula in this season at the end of this month.
The Pula Airport – at which tourists whose destinations are located across all of Istra – is only a few kilometres from the town of Pula, into whose historical edifices and cultural monuments three thousand years of history have been built. With its recognisable antiquity period amphitheatre, the sixth largest in the world, which plays host to numerous cultural events and performances by artists from around the world, Pula has found its place among interesting cultural destinations.
In the vicinity of the town are the Brijuni islands with their national park, located on three kilometres from the mainland coast. Distinct by its specific types of flora and fauna, and archaeological excavations that bear witness to the settlement of ancient civilisations, Brijuni National Park is also the site of top class cultural and sports events, congresses and meetings.
Near Pula, that has fast road connections to all the towns of the Istrian peninsula, there are also other attractive tourist destinations interesting at any time of the year. More info on Istra County Tourist Board: http://www.istra.hr/ and Pula Tourist Board : http://www.pulainfo.hr/
