Croatia Airlines have announced they will commence a new twice weekly service this summer from Dublin Airport to the Croatian capital of Zagreb.
The airline, which is part of the Star Alliance, will operate the new service on Thursdays and Sundays between May and October of this year.
Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison commented on the announcement saying “We are delighted to welcome Croatia Airlines to Dublin Airport, and to Ireland.”
“Zagreb is a vibrant city filled with culture and history and I have no doubt it will be a popular destination. We will work closely with Croatia Airlines to help promote the new route.”
Jasmin Bajić, President & CEO of Croatia Airlines, said he is looking forward to seeing many Irish visitors to Zagreb when its new service launches in May.
“We are excited that for the first time in Croatia Airlines’ history we will have a Dublin-Zagreb route. We see the introduction of this flight as a contribution to the development of tourism in both countries and we are looking forward to seeing many Irish citizens in the Croatian capital, as well as in other parts of Croatia.”
Passengers travelling on the route will also be able to book onwards to other Croatian destinations that Croatia Airlines flies to including Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Pula.
The Croatian national carrier’s fleet consists of 12 aircraft: six Airbus aircraft, four A319s and two A320s, and six Dash 8-Q400 turboprop aircraft.
