We can also confirm the huge contribution easyJet has made to our passenger numbers". He added, “easyJet is now ranked as the second busiest carrier at our airport in terms of passenger numbers, taking into consideration that more than 55 carriers are operating into our airport".

  1. EasyJet and other airlines which serve Croatia and other places on a seasonal basis and have say at least 10 destinations should be required to maintain a year long presence of some sought by the EU in the interest of fairness.

    They obviously would not have to maintain flights to every destination but some type presence should be required.

    Thoughts??

    2. Covek je cist idiot kada postavlja ovakva pitanja. To ne mozes da negiras i brises. U EUropskoj avijaciji postoji pravilo koje dopusta vladine subvencije na nekim linijama i jos ima mogucnost da gosoda
      iz Dubrovnika preusmeri pare iz donacija gradjanima na donaciju kompanijama. Samo
      ne mozes da trazis ovo sto on pise.

    3. lol!

      Read what I wrote again slowly and calmly.

      If the likes of Easyjet are able to offer large amounts of seasonal services to a destination within the EU, would it not be in the interest of fairness (which is what the EU is trying to achieve) that they are required to maintain some type of presence in the off season, even if it is just one destination.

      It would be positive for continued regional development and could also help traditional carriers get back to a more level playing field with the low cost carriers.

    5. As those easyJet routes are subvent by Dubrovnik and Croatian tourist board (50:50) I said that they must insist some of those flights must stay during winter, if not there should be no subventions. Of course they can not stay on all routes, but if one insist they have to stay on at least one weekly flights on 25% of their routes that should do the trick. That means:

      # easyJet 11 routes in summer = at least one weekly flight on 3 routes

      # Norwegian 10 routes in summer = at least one weekly flight on 2 routes

      # Eurowings 7 summer routes = at least one weekly winter flight on 2 routes

      # the same with Jet2 which have 7 routes in summer

      # an with Thomson (7 routes in summer)

      # Scandinavian with 4 routes in summer = 1 flight on 1 route in winter

      # the same with Volotea (4 routes in summer)

      If not they could not get any subventions (and with almost 1 million EUR of subventions there should be some influence).

      Alternatively they should stay on 10% of their summer flights during winter.

    6. Takvi ste kompletni ekonomski idioti i tako ce vam Easy Jet ostati zimi. Jos ce da finasiraju i CTN. Uz sve lepote Dubrovnika nema nista od toga. Prvo ukinite letnje subvencije i prebacite na zimske.
