Namely, GPH, the world’s leading cruise port operator, has nominated the Zadar port for cruises in the “Port of the Year” category, which rewards port administrations / cruising companies that have made the greatest progress in cruise port management in the last year. Ports from any part of the world can apply, and this year the finalists are the ports of OldenLoen in Norway and Yokohama in Japan. The Port of Gaženica (Zadar Cruise Port) in Zadar is one of the three finalists of the most prestigious selection for the best port in the world 2019 Seatrade Cruise Awards. The Zadar Port Authority continues with records in the number of transported passengers and vehicles at ports under its management. As a percentage, the highest growth of 25,17% was achieved in international traffic (seasonal lines). 2.969 passengers were transported. As of this year, a new line Zadar – Pesaro was introduced, next to the line Zadar – Ancona. The winner of the election will be announced on September 11, 2019 in Hamburg at the largest fair of the cruise industry Seatrade Europe 2019. At this fair, Zadar and Zadar County will jointly represent and promote the Zadar Port Authority, ZIPO and GPH, the Zadar Tourist Board and Zadar County and Zadar Airport. The goal is to promote Zadar and Zadar County through excellent cooperation and attract even more guests to the best port on the Adriatic, and maybe soon in the world. For the first time in history, the total number of passengers carried exceeded 1.000.000 in the first 6 months. In the observed period, a total of 1.029.893 passengers were transported, which is an increase of 3,28% compared to the same period in 2018. Rebeka V. Pevec, director of Zadar International Port Operations, said: “We are very excited to be one of the three finalists of the 2019 Seatrade Port of the Year Award. This is also a recognition for our efforts and the efforts of director Škifić and his team in positioning Zadar as an important destination for cruises on the Adriatic, increasing the number of passengers in the port and developing the port and providing an even better experience for visitors to Zadar. All our efforts are focused on the well-being of cruise passengers, but also the entire local community” Photo: Pixabay.com The Seatrade Cruise Awards have been given for more than ten years to the best examples and practices within the cruise industry. Hundreds of ports apply for this selection every year, so entering the finals is a great success. There is still a growing trend in the number of vehicles at a higher rate than among passengers. In the first 6 months of 2019, 194.382 vehicles were transported, which is an increase of 7,05% “Already now, in the first year of cooperation with GPH and ZIPO, we see very good results. Entering the finals, where only two other world ports are with us, speaks volumes about our mutual success. We are convinced that in the coming years this cooperation will be better and better and that Zadar will soon take its rightful place in the cruise business. ” said the director of the Zadar Port Authority Robert Škifić
