Two rotations (return flights) per week are planned, on Wednesdays and Sundays, by Airbus 319 aircraft with a capacity of 144 passengers.”The new line is the result of our efforts to connect Osijek with more distant European cities. Each new line, in addition to passengers who come and go to visit their friends and relatives, creates new opportunities for the development of tourism and the economy in Osijek, Osijek-Baranja County and the entire region. It is important to emphasize that with the introduction of this line, passengers from Osijek will have the opportunity to continue their travels to as many as 23 destinations in eight European Union countries. Ticket prices for Cologne are more than affordable and range from 39,99 euros ”Said Davor Forgić, director of Osijek Airport for Glas Slavonije.In addition to that flight, Osijek Airport with Eurowings has established a line to Stuttgart with two rotations per week (Tuesdays and Sundays), which due to the excellent occupancy and great interest of passengers from this year becomes year-round. Last year, a year-round flight to Basel was established with Wizz Air, and from March 25, ie from the beginning of the summer flight season, it was increased from two to three weeks of rotation, with Monday and Friday flights added on Wednesdays.also, throughout the year in cooperation with Trade Air, Osijek is well connected with domestic destinations – Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Rijeka and Pula, and at the end of March this connection was increased by direct flights to Split and Dubrovnik by Croatia Airlines.
