Croatia is one of Europe's most seasonally skewed markets and highlights the strong dependence of its aviation market on summer leisure routes, with only low demand during the winter season. This sees activity peak in July and August, with June and September acting as shoulder months. While this year has seen levels implicated by Covid-19 related issues that trend has continued, albeit at a much lower level than seen in recent years.
The short season is being compounded in 2020 by an increasing level of Covid-19 infections in the country and travel restrictions are once again being introduced on travellers to and from Croatia. Our knowledge of this pandemic shows that travellers react to the fast-changing travel restrictions.
Latest data from Sojern illustrates this has especially been the case in Croatia with an instantaneous impact on travel intent and confidence. Searches and bookings have decreased to -34% and -53% respectively, according to the digital marketing solutions provider.
These volumes reflect a significant negative impact on year-on-year volumes from the previous week – pre-announcement. This is a potential reflection of how volatile each market is, how quickly traveller’s plans are changing, but also influenced somewhat by the market under consideration.
