The new visual identity of Osijek Airport was presented today at the passenger terminal. The new official logo and other visual signs were presented at a press conference. The CEO of Osijek Airport Ivan Kos said that the logo had the shape of letter “O”, standing for Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County. Its colour is the golden colour of fields across which the airstrip stretches, just as can be seen from the aeroplane approaching the Osijek Airport.
“The visual identity is simple and symbolic. Its purpose is to complete the story and make the airport recognisable in the world. Strategic changes initiated last year include the repositioning of Osijek Airport as modern, dynamic and accessible to domestic and foreign tourists”, Kos pointed out.
Osijek Mayor Ivan Radić announced the beginning of the PSO (Public Service Obligation) programme that will last for four years, connecting Osijek to other Croatian airports. “In the upcoming period Osijek will be connected to Dubrovnik, Pula, Rijeka, Split, Zadar and Zagreb, which is of great importance for our city. I am sure that the PSO flights, the new investments and smart management that we currently see at Osijek Airport will attract more domestic and foreign tourists. The City of Osijek will keep co-financing Osijek Airport”, Radić said.
Deputy prefect of Osijek-Baranja County Josip Miletić stressed the importance of domestic lines. “This programme will give a new visibility to Osijek Airport, making air travel common. A good management of Osijek Airport we are witnessing shows that we can expect even more success in the upcoming period. The County supports the project, as it has strategic importance for our county”, Miletić said.
Petra Koletić of Trade Air pointed out that ten flights will operate from Osijek during the winter, and eleven in summer. “The flights to Zagreb will operate three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, while flights to other cities will operate twice a week”, Koletić concluded.
