Connecting Croatia and the UAE has multiple effects for Croatian tourism and economy. In this context, the established and well-filled airlines of Emirates and FlyDubai, which connect Dubai with Zagreb and Dubrovnik, come to the fore, which opens many other distant markets, such as South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and others. . As our goal is to ensure an even better future and continuous development based on sustainable tourism, we must open new markets that offer great potential, especially in the pre- and post-season. “, said Director Staničić after meetings with Emirates representatives and FlyDubai’s Chief Commercial Officer Hamad Obailall, adding that he was pleased with the excellent feedback from key partners in this market, which should contribute to further growth of tourist traffic from the UAE market.During the meeting with the representative of investors in the Four Season complex on Hvar, Dennis Wijsmuller, Minister Cappelli emphasized that the project will contribute to even greater competitiveness of Croatian tourism and that he believes that this and similar projects will attract other investors. The Minister added that this is an environmentally sustainable project to which the Ministry of Tourism will give maximum support for its more efficient implementation. Thomas Cook India, India’s largest tour operator, emphasizes that they are interested in further investments in the development of offers to Croatian destinations, which is why it was agreed that their key representatives will participate in a study trip to Croatia at the end of the year. .Direct airlines Dubai-Zagreb and Dubai-Dubrovnik achieved growth of tourist traffic from the market of the United Arab Emirates this yearRegarding the United Arab Emirates, the Croatian tourism sector generated 8.600 arrivals and more than 23.000 overnight stays from this market last year, which is an increase of 2016% in arrivals and 78% in overnight stays compared to 72.
