Update: Introduction of Flights from Dubrovnik to Korcula
In last few days new information has emerged about seaplane connections between Dubrovnik and Korcula and further with Vela Luka and Ubli on Lastovo Island.
Just over year ago, in April last year, there were some reports that flights will be introduced during last summer. However, the flights are now expected to commence in August or September this year.
The dimensions of each pontoon are expected to be about 20m x 30m (see photo above)
This is just a first part of the large seaplane connection project which will eventually include the network of 18 seaplane pontoons in several Adriatic towns and their neighbouring islands – Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Cavtat, Rovinj, Šibenik, Omiš, Mali Lošinj, Rab, Hvar, Brioni, Cres, Krk, Vis, Komiža, Polače/Pomena on Mljet, Novalja on Pag, Supetar and Bol on Brač.
