    Europe's first modern seaplane network one step closer in Croatia

    Jelsa - European aviation history moves one step closer, as authorities confirm downtown Split as a key location for Europe's first modern seaplane network.

    It has been a 13-year battle with Croatian bureaucracy, but the announcement on January 17, 2013 that a concession had been granted in the city of Split for the hydroplane project of European Coastal Airlines ensures that the first modern scheduled seaplane service in Europe will begin in Croatia as early as May this year.

    ‚ÄčThe concession, in the prime location of Matejuska on the Split waterfront, means that the German-based company will be able to connect the Dalmatian capital with popular islands such as Hvar, Vis and Korcula, slashing transfer times at affordable prices, leading to a true revolution in Croatian tourism on the popular Adriatic coast.

    I'd say the Germans may have underestimated Croatian bureaucracy

    However, hopefully they will finally establish the network they planned and soon start business.

    Here's the link to the operator, European Coastal Airlines.

    P.S. I look forward to seeing how the Twin Otters will handle the Adriatic waves ...
