Former and current employees, partners and numerous guests and guests celebrated the 70th anniversary of the founding of Jadrolinija, the largest Croatian passenger shipping company, in Rijeka on the ship “Marko Polo”.Since its founding in 1947, Jadrolinija has played an irreplaceable role in the lives of the inhabitants of numerous Croatian islands as well as the coastal ones, proudly pointing out Jadrolinija. Our basic tools are vessels, but our job is people, said the President of the Management Board David Sopta and added “Our catamarans, ferries and passenger ships have been bringing people to and from the island for seventy years. For mothers and fathers of children who have left the island for education and work, Jadrolinija ships in the distance are a joyful sign of the return of loved ones in their arms. Jadrolinija’s ships bring the islanders to work on land every day, giving them access to education, medical care and other facilities. Jadrolinija’s boats are our sea highway, expressway and highway on which tourists, our guests from all over the world come to see Croatia and its natural and cultural riches. Our mission today, as seventy years ago, is to connect the Croatian coast and our beautiful thousand islands. All together, it is about the infrastructure that connects us, what makes Croatia a society and a state”, Said Sopta and concluded that with 11,8 million passengers and about 2,9 million vehicles transported, Jadrolinija achieved seven percent better results in the first 11 months of this year compared to the year before.In addition to maintaining 34 concessioned lines in Croatia and four lines in international traffic, Jadrolinija enables the connection of Croatian islands to the mainland and actively participates in the realization of the Croatian tourist offer. Boats perform over 600 departures a day during the summer season, and the busiest lines are maintained almost 24 hours a day. Jadrolinija’s fleet currently has 50 ships, 34 ferries for local lines, 10 high-speed passenger ships, 3 ferries for international lines and 3 classic ships.How behind every company there are people who are most deserving of success is nicely shown by the video from the production of ICTbusiness TV who spent two days with the crew of Jadrolinija’s motor ferry Brač and had the opportunity to see how hard their job is in the summer heat. at the same time offering travelers a superior travel experience.Related news: JADROLINIJA IN COOPERATION WITH BAR NAVIGATION BEGINS TO CONNECT THE COAST OF MONTENEGRO WITH ITALY<br /><br />
