Adria heading to BelgradeOnly a few weeks after Zagreb Airport’s newly named CEO, Tonči Peović, called upon low cost airlines to use Zagreb Airport, Wizz Air has announced that it will begin flights from Dortmund in Germany to the Croatian capital. Wizz Air already operates flights from London to Zagreb and together with Germnwings is the only low cost airline operating out of Zagreb. Flights will begin March 8, 2010. All flight details can be found on the right hand side in the new route launches section.
On Friday evening, Slovenia’s Adria Airways officially announced that it will resume services from Ljubljana to Belgrade on March 1, 2010. Adria will resume services to Belgrade after nearly 20 years of absence. The airline’s representative in Belgrade stated that Adria would operate daily services to the Serbian capital but will seek partnership with Jat Airways on the route.
Meanwhile, for a second time in a row Swiss authorities have rejected Montenegro Airlines the right to begin services from Niš to Zurich by Swiss authorities. Montenegro Airlines has applied for yet another license and now plans to begin services from Niš on January 23, 2010.
