And Now Ukraine: SkyUp Connects Brac to Kiev Direct

With all the stories of record-breaking passenger numbers at the airports of Split, Zagreb and Dubrovnik, spare a thought for the tiny airport of Brac.

The island airport, one of only three in Croatia, almost went out of business a few years ago, but it has managed to turn itself around to create a very impressive success story of increased passenger numbers and international connectivity.

Brac is currently undergoing its second phase of airport expansion, which will ultimately see an expanded runway of 2,400m. But even in the interim, European airlines have seen the advantage of offering direct flights to the island, thereby avoiding the time-consuming transfers from Split airport to the ferry and the ensuing ferry ride.

Last summer, no there were no less than seven countries connected to Brac directly. That number has now risen to eight with the announcement of direct flights from the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, courtesy of SkyUp Airlines.

The new flights will be twice a week, on Saturdays and Sundays, commencing June 1 until September.
