  1. It seems the tourism will not flourish this year in Croatia as was forecast. The return of Turkey to the map seems to be too big a factor to neglect.

    2. Well it's true, Brits are probably heading to cheaper destinations like Turkey or Egypt now when there is Brexit.

    3. Brexit will negatively impact all air traffic demand. While some demand will shift, most of it (especially LCC) won’t and people will simply choose not to fly.

    4. I wonder what this will mean for OU in LHR. I guess it will be a good excuse for them to sell their slots.

    5. Oh no, there will only be 20.5 million tourists instead of 21 million, how will we survive. lmao love these types of posts, like tourism hasn't grown 30% just in the last three years and basically reached max capacity during peak season, just maintaining it would be fantastic.

    7. It's not the coast we should worry, it's ZAG.

  2. On the contrary, the fact that this is UK routes would suggest it's Brexit related, although I expect the European leisure is also market is heading towards a downturn. It feels a bit like 2008 with all the weaker airlines starting to close down.

    1. European economy is not in a good shape. Italy is in recession, Germany is on the brink of recession as well. When UK leaves it will also have a negative impact.

  3. It is a pity that Avioradar only reports News related to Croatia. Tui has cancelled way many flights across the Mediterranean this year. Reasons?

    1. Probably brexit reasons.

    2. Tui Group recently reported losses of EUR 83 million, apparently driven by Tui’s airlines and tour operations unit. It's not rosy on the British market, Thomas Cook also said it planned a “strategic review” of its airline as it struggled to contend with an uncertain outlook because of Brexit and increased prices in the Canary Islands.

    3. Gosh, things some people post on here... unbelievable.

      The loss was in a winter quarter! That quarter is always negative similar as for airlines. TuI had 1.1 billion profit last year!!

      Many TUIfly UK routes all over Europe are axed this summer because of two reasons - shortage of aircraft and introduction of reserve resources after last chaotic summer season with lots of delays and strikes.
      Croatia is actually hardly affected.

    4. TUI has a really strong winter ski charter season, that one performed quite badly. Era of charter airlines is gone, Thomas Cook is a good example.

      Delete
    5. And what do winter ski charters have to do with Croatia and summer seasonal routes?

      By the way, Thomas Cook is trying to sell its airlines as they need cash plus they are apparently unable to invest in their airlines. Best example is Condor Germany which urgently needs to get replacements for 29 long range airframes all 757s and 767s.

  4. Therefore Volotea significantly increases Croatia :)
