New Airline Routes to Ukraine, Germany, Croatia & Macedonia

Wizz Air

Last week Ukrainian airline, AeroSvit, the biggest in the country, launched its new route between London’s Gatwick Airport and Kiev.  The airline will be flying five times a week to the Ukrainian capital, catering for both leisure and business travellers.  It is hoped that once travellers land in Kiev they will visit other regions such as Frankovsk, Lugansk and Odessa.  It is expected that around 65,000 passengers will fly from Gatwick to Kiev this year on the new AeroSvit route.

Since BAA sold Gatwick Airport to to Global Infrastructure Partners it has gained no less than 18 new routes including airberlin flight to Hamburg and Nuremburg.  easyJet has also launched a new route from London Gatwick to Zagreb this year – the airline’s third route between London and Croatia.

However, Wizz Air attempts to maintain its premier position as the number one airline carrier from London to Eastern Europe, this year opening a new route to the Macedonian capital, Skopje.  This brings the number of Wizz Air routes from London Luton to the region to 23.

So, it looks like if you want to travel to the region there’s never been more flexibility!  Long may it continue!

The easyGuide to Croatia

croatia-flagLow-fares airline easyJet is encouraging Brits to explore the delights of the Dalmatian Coast after it was revealed that less than three per cent of the nine million tourists that visit Croatia each year come from the UK.  With summer temperatures ranging from 26 to 30°C, a stunning coastline dotted with hundreds of beautiful islands and the Croatian kuna still providing exceptionally good value for British tourists, the reasons to visit Dalmatia are seemingly never-ending.

This year easyJet has expanded its routes to Croatia and now operates regular flights from Liverpool and Gatwick to Dubrovnik, and flights from Bristol and Gatwick to Split.  Both destinations have a flight time from the UK of less than three hours and offer the perfect starting place for island hopping beach holidays, with regular water taxis operating up and down the coastline.  Dalmatia has a long rugged coast, backed by high mountains with hundreds of offshore islands, each one with its own character from trendy hotspots to secluded getaways.

Hvar

Hvar Island is one of Dalmatia’s most popular islands with a combination of beautiful sandy and pebbly beaches, olive groves and pine forests, quiet secluded coves and larger bustling beaches littered with bars and cafes.  Hvar Town is one of busiest resorts, with some of the best bars and clubs in Dalmatia. Its regular beach parties are infamous, as are its chic bars and restaurants.
