Update: Introduction of Flights from Dubrovnik to Korcula

In the 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 a 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.

Currently, local port authorities, in cooperation with the regional conservation department are about to make decisions on locations of floating structures serving as docks (pontoons) for each port.

The currently planned location for Dubrovnik floating dock is on Lapad side of Gruz bay, the near vicinity of Villa Elisa and Sorkocevic palace.

The dimensions of each pontoon are expected to be about 20m x 30m (see photo above)

The cost for a return flight from Dubrovnik to Korcula, which will last for 12 minutes and will carry up to 20 passengers, is now expected to be between 50 and 70 Euro.

This is just the first part of the? arge 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, Sibenik, Omis, Mali Losinj, Rab, Hvar, Brioni, Cres, Krk, Vis, Komiza, Polace/Pomena on Mljet, Novalja on Pag, Supetar and Bol on Brac.
