first_imgThe management of Eurowings introduced a regular winter route connecting Kvarner with Cologne in early July, and through it Kvarner is connected with numerous destinations around the world throughout the year.The introduction of this year-round route represents a significant positive step for the entire county, its economy, residents and especially all entities related to tourism, as it is the first time in history that Rijeka is directly connected to a major European capital during the winter, said the director of the airport. Rijeka Tomislav Palalić.Linija se odvija dva puta tjedno: nedjeljom i srijedom do kraja ožujka, a zatim se nastavlja u travnju svake subote. No kako ističu iz Zračne luke Rijeka, glavni problem je slaba popunjenost aviona, koja je ispod 30 posto, što znači da je na ukupno 144 mjesta u avionu u prosijeku ih je prodano manje od 40.  Slaba popunjenosti linije nije pokrivena komercijalna isplativost linije, što će ukoliko tako i ostane, sigurno negativno se odraziti na buduće smanjenje ili otkazivanje navedene linije.Rijeka Airport invites business entities as well as the general public to help them in the promotion and filling of the mentioned line through their channels, as well as when exhibiting at fairs. However, in order for the line to be well enough filled and commercially viable, the motive of coming to Rijeka, ie the entire Kvarner, is needed. So, we have an excellent airline, ie transport connections, which is the first prerequisite for the development of tourism, especially in the pre- and post-season, and now it is up to us to create good enough motives for arrival, and the motive for coming out of season is not sun and sea, but quality, diverse and authentic content.It is all up to us and surely how we can encourage positive changes through synergy. Ultimately, we can all share information, both private and business, on our channels to further promote it. Surely we are in a much better position than before, because the line is active, we have the confidence of the airline, and now it is up to us to keep it. As Mr. Palalić points out, the line is of great importance for the entire Kvarner because it is connected with the whole world throughout the year.The summer flight season beginsSoon, more precisely on March 26.03.2018, XNUMX.
