    1. Because the concessionaire is French? Hardly, they already codeshare with JU. If so, they will probably send HOP!

    2. What does it mean "in the pipeline"?

    3. I think KL will indeed start flights soon that is why they moved transavia from Rotterdam to Dbv instead of Amsterdam.

  6. Great sooner or later it will be daily troughout the season.
    TK further increases DBV to 12 weekly from SST 18.

    1. DBV is a town of 40.000 inhabitants :D

    2. It's a small town and rather empty during winter months, but overcrowded during summer. I was born and live there, so I know. Nonetheless, great results, it will be a busy year!

    3. Well they improved significantly on the low baseline ... looks promising for the rest of the year since no special events happened in January which would explain this increase in the number of pax.

  8. e sad, ako pogledate brojke DBV i SPU....lako je zakljuciti kako se turisticka sezona osjetno produljila i da se turizam u zemlji Hrvata polako moze nazaivati granom industrije.
    Jos kad bi ostale grani bile tretirane kako spada, turizam bi bio na 4.mjestu po vaznosti.
    Nazalost, sad je na 1.mjestu. A zemlja kojoj je turizam na 1.mjestu nije razvijena drzava.

  9. In my opinion they could have made it start in May and finish in October.
    They will probably extend the period in the next season.

  10. Dubrovnik, show them how it's done! Bravo!

  11. I'm pretty much sure Air France will eventually introduce additional flights to DBV!

  12. Interesting that AF is adding four destination and DBV has the least frequencies. Maybe they add more if advance bookings perform well.
