Three new Jadrolinija ferries
During forthcomming tourist season, Jadrolinija, the Croatian ferry company, will boost its ferry lines with introduction of three new vessels.
The first ferry will sail between Vabiska on the Island of Krk and Merag on the Island of Cres, transporting up to 170 vehicles.
The second ferry will operate between Split and Supetar on the Island of Brac, transporting up to 196 vehicles, while the third ferry having a capacity of 170 vehicles will sail from Split to Vela Luka on the Island of Korcula proceeding to the Island of Lastovo.
The other ferries that have transported passengers and vehicles between these points will be reassigned, so the Cres ferry will now sail between Brestova and Porozina on the Island of Cres, and the Supetar ferry will operate between Prizna and Žigljen on the Island of Pag.
The introduction of three new vessels in ferry traffic will enable decommissioning of four old ferries: Božava, Nehaj, Lovrijenac and Borik. This will significantly increase the safety of sailing, as well as the quality of ferry transport along Croatian Coast.
In 2007 Jadrolinija transported 9.32 million passengers and 2.41 million vehicles, which is 4 and 6 % increase in comparison with 2006.
