Despite its profits Dubrovnik Airline will send 4 cabin crew teams on 6 month paid leave due to the heavily reduced operations the airline will have this winter when compared to last. However, the cabin crew have not lost their jobs as they will return to work on April 1, 2010.

Dubrovnik Airline fleet expansion
Dubrovnik Airline poised for fleet expansionThe charter Croatian airline, Dubrovnik Airline, will finish the year with a profit despite the global financial crisis and the problems Dubrovnik Airline faced during the year. The start of the summer season was dramatic for the airline. It had to cancel many of its charter operations and was facing the prospects of a potentially disastrous summer holiday season. However, by rationalising costs and introducing cost cutting measures the charter airline will end the year in the green and will begin a fleet renewal programme. Dubrovnik Airline currently operates 3 MD82s and 2 MD83s. A deal for the lease of a further 2 aircraft has been signed and the aircraft will join the airline’s fleet during the winter season. The two aircraft, whose type is yet to be named, will be with Dubrovnik Airline for 18 months.
