Sunny outlook for 2009 summer at Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik Airport and tourists are already receiving positive news from major world carriers regarding new flights which will be introduced from the coastal Croatian city of Dubrovnik (pictured above). British Airways is introducing flights from London Gatwick Airport to Dubrovnik starting from the 2009 summer season. From March 29, 2009, British Airways will operate flights between Dubrovnik and London Gatwick daily. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday flights will be operated twice daily. From June 2, 2009 the national airline of Spain, Iberia, will introduce flights from Madrid to Dubrovnik. Flights will be operated 3 times a week (on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday). From July 2, frequencies will be increased to 5 flights per week (added flights on Thursday and Friday). These flights will be welcome as the airport is currently underperforming with passenger numbers, reporting a slightly smaller number of passengers in comparison to last year. A new terminal is currently under construction and should be complete in 2011 according to the current construction schedule.
