Dubrovnik could be on the verge of direct charter flights from South Korea. Uniline, the largest Croatian tour operator, has opened an office in Seoul, South Korea. The new office is located in the residential part of Seoul, about one and a half kilometres from the Republic of Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and about two kilometres from the Dynasty Palace.
"Uniline's long term goal is that every tenth Korean will experience and admire the beauty of Croatia and South East Europe," said Robert Sedlar, the executive director of the Uniline travel company. To achieve these goals, the company announced a number of marketing and sales activities in the Korean market, and negotiations for the opening of an airline charter line between Seoul and Dubrovnik.
According to the latest census, South Korea a population of 51 million, and in 2016, there were about 380,000 tourist arrivals in Croatia. This was a 10 percent increase over 2015, but when you compare that figure to six or seven years ago the number of Korean tourists in Croatia has increased by 300 percent.
