    ACI, Croatia's marina association, intends to establish a seaplane airline

    As stated by the Internet portal aeroTelegraf, ACI (Adriatic Croatia International Club) intends to establish its own seaplane airline that will travel between ACI marinas and offshore Croatian islands. According to sources, five Cessna Grand Caravan seaplanes would be employed, with one arriving as soon as this year. Flight operations are expected to begin in May 2022, according to the plans.

    ACI validates the planning

    ACI acknowledged that similar plans exist when questioned. However, as stated explicitly by the ACI press department, no final decision has been taken; economic feasibility and, of course, demand are still being considered.

    European Coastal Airlines is being taken over along with the 22 marinas where the seaplanes will take off the aim is to acquire six more take-off and landing locations from the previous operation of a Split-based seaplane line, ECA (European Coastal Airlines), which is likely under creditor protection. Additionally, the portal said that ACI has already submitted for the AOC, or Air Operator Certificate, essential for air traffic.

    Up to five seaplanes are being considered

    Another article from the exyuaviation blog substantiates these ideas. According to Zdravko Deli, director of ACI’s special projects, “we are starting an airline with a concentration on water flights, similar to what ECA did a few years ago.” Regrettably, that business fell bankrupt. ACI, on the other hand, sees an opportunity in the market. We want to fly amphibious Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft, and we will purchase one turboprop and lease two others. The airline’s fleet will consist of up to five aircraft, depending on demand.”

    ACI is establishing a seaplane airline to link marinas

    The plan, as discussed in further detail in this article, calls for three phases of development: The marinas should be linked first, followed by a connection from the mainland to the Croatian islands, primarily during the winter season, and finally, an aircraft connecting the Croatian coastal districts to Italy.

    Croatian seaplanes: an exciting history

    Seaplanes have a near-decade-long history on the Croatian coast: the business European Coastal Airlines began operations in 2014 with high hopes but was forced to cease operations owing to old seaplanes and cited safety problems. Since 2017, the firm has been placed under creditor protection, and it was still flying de Havilland Twin Otter 6-300s at the time. Meanwhile, sponsors from Dubai reportedly planned to fund the restoration of flying operations, but those plans finally fell through.

    ACI is based on synergy

    If the claims are genuine, it will provide another potential for Croatian tourism, particularly maritime tourism, to grow. Given that the ACI Marina Group is mainly state-owned, bureaucratic obstacles in associated licensing processes should be maintained to a minimum, while synergies in terms of feasible take-off and landing locations, which are already essentially accessible in the marinas, may be used.

    However, the project is now merely in the planning stages

    And with a business-like ACI on board, the airline should be assured of a strong start if both the planning phase and the requirements assessment are successful. The speedy accessibility to offshore islands during the winter months, in particular, would therefore assure the long-term medical care of the local people that live there.
