Flights will also be introduced from Berlin to Dubrovnik, Pula, Rijeka, Split and Zadar. Hamburg will also be connected with these destinations.

Passengers will be able to fly from Cologne to Split, Zagreb, Rijeka, Dubrovnik and Pula; from Stuttgart to Split, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Rijeka and Zadar; from Dortmund to Split; from Hannover to Dubrovnik and Split; and from Duesseldorf to Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Split and Zadar.
