Rijeka directly connected with Belgrade by air

first_imgKonstantin and Anastasia from Berlin arrived in Croatia as tourists for the first time. “We had a transfer to Rijeka in Belgrade. The flight was very pleasant and they even took a picture of us with a child for Instagram Air Serbia. We are going to Rab and hope for a pleasant vacation”, The couple is satisfied. Source / photo: New sheet; Air Serbia; Facebook: Air Serbia Aircraft on the line Belgrade – Rijeka will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, throughout the year. Čubranić stated that this would shorten the journey between the two cities from the current 6 hours on the highway to one hour and twenty minutes. The line will be operated by ATR 72 aircraft with a capacity of 66 passengers, and during the tourist season, during July and August, A319 aircraft with 144 seats. “The introduction of the Rijeka – Belgrade line, after almost 30 years, is a very significant step forward for the Kvarner region, and the fact that it will operate throughout the year is the basis for further development of Rijeka Airport, because it reduces its seasonality and passengers have the opportunity to connect with larger air traffic centers throughout the year”, Said Cubranic. Air Serbia offers tied flights from Rijeka to as many as 49 destinations. They also cooperate with Etihad Airways, thus offering flights from Belgrade to Asian, African and Australian destinations. For the first time in almost thirty years since the flight on the route Belgrade – Rijeka, an Air Serbia plane landed on Krk. In order to celebrate the first line of the Serbian national airline, a festive reception was organized on Krk for the plane, crew and passengers with a water triumphal arch from fire trucks, a folklore performance and homemade sweets, Novi list reports. Also, Goran from Rijeka arrived from a tourist trip to Belgrade. “I visited friends, and I can say only the best about the flight. I had already traveled to Belgrade and it was about six hours by highway or the same amount to the Zagreb airport and then by plane to Belgrade. Ticket prices are acceptable, around 90 euros, which is approximately the price of the highway and the fuel that is normally consumed on the same route. It was a special pleasure to see our region, but also parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina from the airHe said. The first two passengers of this line, Gordana Kasum and Suzana Tomić, representatives of two travel agencies from Belgrade, also spoke from Novi list. Namely, Kasum and Tomić arrived to visit numerous hotels in the region with which they will negotiate tourist arrangements. “We arrived on business, to visit the hotels with which we intend to cooperate and see first hand the conditions of accommodation they provide. We believe in good cooperation and that this year, as in the following seasons, we will bring a large number of guests”, Explained the tourist workers. The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Goran Grozdanić, Executive Director for Air Serbia, in the company of Vedrana Čubranić, Head of Plan and Development at Rijeka Airport.last_img read more

Dubrovnik finally develops the program “Winter in Dubrovnik” in a meaningful and connected way

first_imgCONNECTION OF DUBROVNIK – WINTER FLIGHTS The measure refers to the exemption from rent for public areas of caterers who are mainly engaged in serving food (restaurants, taverns, pizzerias) in the historic center, if they perform their activities from 1 December 2019 to 29 February 2020. The leaflet can be downloaded from the TZGD website, as well as in the open Tourist Information Offices of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Pile and Gruž, and in all open Dubrovnik hotels.  Also, as pointed out by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, a Facebook promotional campaign is being conducted in a dozen foreign markets from where the largest number of guests come to Dubrovnik during the winter months, as well as locally for visitors who are in Dubrovnik.  Given the increase in the number of international and domestic flights during the winter months and the interest and growth in the number of visitors, the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik during this winter prepared promotional activities and printed a monthly flyer “Winter restaurants“, Which contains a list of open restaurants, pizzerias and fast food restaurants during the month of December with special working hours, so that guests staying in Dubrovnik are better informed and so that open restaurants are better promoted.  Support for Dubrovnik for this first step towards a complete story, but the real work is just beginning. Starting from the website to expanding the tourist offer to the entire Dubrovnik area through integrated tourist products. Specifically, for example, Pelješac has and offers excellent facilities and products that are chronically lacking in Dubrovnik’s tourist offer, and which complement each other perfectly. That is why, in my opinion, Dubrovnik should use its media and financial power to promote and develop a wider area, not just itself. Because this is where the winning formula lies on how to extend the number of days guests stay in Dubrovnik or Dubrovnik-Neretva County (wherever a guest spends the night, they will certainly visit Dubrovnik one day) as tourist spending increases and most importantly offers quality and authentic content to guests. Content that directly affects the level of guest satisfaction about the overall impression of the destination. This year, the City of Dubrovnik has made a decision to reduce the public area for catering tables and chairs by 10% for all facilities used with 25,00 and more m2. Also, the lease time of public space has been increased to 5 years, which will certainly bring some security to caterers. Of course, the main motive for coming must be content. Thus, the City of Dubrovnik, the Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the Dubrovnik Summer Festival have prepared a cultural, entertainment, gastronomic and music program for visitors of all ages as part of the sixth edition of the Dubrovnik Winter Festival, which will last until January 6, 2020. You can view the leaflet at the following link: Dubrovnik – leaflet with a list of open restaurants during December Dubrovnik brought order to the historic core This whole winter story of Dubrovnik is finally meaningful and connected, but there is certainly still a lot of room for growth. This is only the first step and prerequisite for strategic development and thus long-term success, because tourism and the concept of destination is much more than accommodation and restaurants. Also, in order to extend the tourist season, the City of Dubrovnik has proposed a measure that should stimulate the owners of restaurants in the historic center to work in the winter months. Dubrovnik Winter Festival During the winter season 2019/2020 Dubrovnik will be connected with the most foreign destinations so far, seven to be exact. Dubrovnik can and must do much better A complete tourism product and strategic development is the only right path to sustainable development. A term that in Croatia we are just discovering and learning what it means. But we live in the 21st century where everything is available to us, we have all the potential, prerequisites and resources, and it is up to us to connect all the points well and tell our authentic story. Everyone is fighting for every tourist, both in the global and in a strong and competitive European market, and the winners will be those who are innovative, creative, proactive and those who are primarily engaged in market development. In accordance with the new amendments to the Decision on the lease of public areas in Article 6, a paragraph was added on the exemption from paying rent to caterers in the Historic Center if caterers perform their activity in the “winter” months. Of course, we have high expectations of Dubrovnik as our TOP destination, which must be one of the domestic signposts of how and in which direction to develop. Dubrovnik must be a tourist leader. Thus, Croatia Airlines, in addition to its regular flights to Zagreb, will connect Dubrovnik and Frankfurt, British Airways will connect us with London, and Vueling will connect Dubrovnik with Rome and Barcelona. For the second time in the winter flight schedule, LOT will connect Dubrovnik and Warsaw, Aegean Airlines Dubrovnik with Athens while Turkish Airlines will continue to connect Istanbul and Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik can and must do much better. RELATED NEWS:last_img read more

Absentee rules limit voters’ access to polls

first_imgMembers of the League of Women Voters attended the February meeting of the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors to voice our support for early voting and automatic voter registration.We were surprised to hear several of the supervisors say they object to early voting because, they say, it’s easy to register and “anyone who has trouble getting to the polls can just vote by absentee ballot.” They’re mistaken.There are rules for using absentee ballots.Voting by absentee ballot is a great option if you meet the qualifications, which are: 1) you will be absent from the county; 2) you have a permanent or temporary illness or disability or are the primary caregiver for someone who is ill or disabled; 3) you’re a resident or patient at a VA hospital or 4) you’re being held in jail but haven’t been convicted. But consider the case of a single mother of a 2- and 4-year-olds. She gets them up at 7 a.m., feeds and dresses them, packs them into the car, drops them off at daycare, drives to her job at the other end of the county by 9 a.m.She works till 5 p.m., picks up the kids, drives home, feeds them, and waits for the babysitter to arrive so she can go vote. The babysitter calls to say she has a flat. It’s too late to pack up the kids and still get to the polls in time. Mom would have benefited from being able to vote on her day off – as would be possible with the 12 days of early voting being proposed. But she doesn’t qualify for an absentee ballot.Barbara ThomasSaratoga SpringsThe writer is co-president of the League of Women Voters of Saratoga County.More from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
