Joining Wizz Air and Germanwings as the only 2 low cost airlines operating out of Zagreb, Norwegian Air Shuttle will commence services from Copenhagen this summer. easyJet is likely to open flights to 6 destinations from Zagreb during the 2010/2011 winter season.
Peović said that low cost airlines, on average, account for 35% of the total turnover at European airports, and only 18% at Zagreb. “We plan to increase this figure to at least 30%. These low-budget companies are exactly what our airports need”, Peović says.
