Addition of the 2nd EasyJet Rijeka line connecting Kvarner and Berlin this summer

February 5, 2022 – The latest on flights to Croatia as the second EasyJet Rijeka route has been announced, linking Kvarner and Berlin this summer.

After announcing its return to Rijeka after 15 years and establishing a regular service between London (Gatwick) and Rijeka, EasyJet now offers a second service from Rijeka airport – a seasonal service to Berlin!

To know, Croatian Air Force reports that from June 28 this year, EasyJet will introduce a direct line between Rijeka and Berlin, which will operate twice a week, every Tuesday and Saturday, departing from Rijeka to the German capital in the evening.

Airbus A320s have been announced on this route, which can accommodate up to 180 passengers. Unlike the route to London announced until the end of the summer flight schedule, the Berlin route is scheduled to operate until September 3, 2022.

Eurowings thus wins in competition given that it already operates in the season between Berlin and Rijeka. This line is also chosen by many Zagreb passengers who do not have a direct flight from Zagreb to Berlin.

Recall that after fifteen years of absence, EasyJet confirmed earlier this week that it would operate with two weekly flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays between May and October 2022. Rijeka airport welcomed the news after announcing the return of Ryanair, Condor Airlines and AirSerbia.

As EasyJet returns to Rijeka Airport, the city expects a resumption of international traffic in the region and a record number of passengers arriving between May and October this year.

After many years of negotiations between Rijeka Airport and EasyJet, a consensus has been reached. In addition, in discussions with representatives of the relevant ministry, county, local units, hotels and tourist offices, support and guarantees for promotional activities in the region were provided.

These activities are necessary to better position Kvarner in the UK market, so it is planned to encourage and increase the number of arrivals from this market, which now accounts for less than 1% of overnight stays in Kvarner, said the Rijeka airport.

The city of Rijeka considers it necessary to strengthen its tourist offer and its strategy to attract international guests after the pandemic has affected the development of the activities planned for Rijeka 2020: European Capital of Culture and the traditional carnival of the city canceled in 2021 and 2022.
