2nd EasyJet Rijeka Line Added Connecting Kvarner and Berlin this Summer

February 5, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as the second EasyJet Rijeka line has been announced, connecting Kvarner and Berlin this summer. 

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

Namely, Croatian Aviation 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 A320 aircraft have been announced on this route, which has a capacity of up to 180 passengers. Unlike the route to London announced until the end of the summer flight schedule, the Berlin line should be in service until September 3, 2022. 

Eurowings thus gains competition considering 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, 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 the recovery 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 was reached. Furthermore, in talks with representatives of the relevant ministry, county, local units, hotels, and tourist boards, support and guarantees for promotional activities in the region were provided.

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

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