Very efficient staff and comfortable flight
The flight was quick and ahead of schedule.
The outbound flight was good but my return flight was awful.
Good, well constructed offering, well done
Long queues at check in because Easyjet several flights at a similar time
Bag drop was a little chaotic and could have done with a person organising. But generally check-in and flight was great.
Manchester is very busy - best to treat oneself to one of the lounged
Horrible long queues to clear customs at Split, took about 1hour.
It was late boarding but not too bad
With its upmarket hotels, fine dining and legendary beach bars, Hvar is the place to go if you like living the high life. But there’s another side to all the glitz and glamour. The island’s interior is dotted with ancient hamlets, picturesque vineyards and fragrant lavender fields.
As the sunniest place in Croatia, there’s no bad time to visit Hvar, but to see the island at its best visit between June and August when the lavender fields are in full bloom. Peak season between July and August is when the party and temperature really heats up – flights and accommodation at this time can be expensive. Visit earlier in the year during spring to catch the world-famous Easter procession or in September for the grape harvest.
