ZAGREB, 1 Nov 2021 - The Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) is presenting Croatian tourism at the World Travel Market in London in person from 1 to 3 November and online on the 8th and the 9th, the HTZ said on Monday.

On the first day of the event, HTZ director Kristjan Staničić met with representatives of easyJet, TUI, SAGA, & Jet2Holidays, Globetrotter TV, National Geographic, and Wanderlust.

Staničić said and TUI brought the largest number of British tourists to Croatia and that's "announcements for next year are excellent."

"For next year our partners are announcing a rise in demand for Croatia and more flights," he added.

EasyJet's development manager Richard Owen said the company planned to introduce new flights to Croatia next year, including to Rijeka and Osijek for the first time.

Frank Broersen of TUI said this year there was a 16% increase in bookings for Croatia from 2019 and that they were confident the negotiations with Croatian partners that were underway would result in an increase in TUI capacity to Croatia. & Jet2Holidays officials also announced upping capacity to Croatia.
