Back in ZagrebThe national carrier of Japan, JAL, has announced that it will be operating charter flights to the Croatian capital throughout the summer, with the first Boeing B747-400 landing on Saturday, June 5, Zagreb Airport reports. Planned flights to Zagreb are also scheduled for June 19, July 3 and August 7. The flights will be operating out of Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima and Sapporo. As was the case in previous years, the flights are being organised for Japanese tourists by the Japanese Tourist Bureau. Zagreb Airport has announced that all four flights have been sold out.
Japan Airlines recently commended Zagreb Airport for the handling of its aircraft last year. Although there were more charters organised last year, the difficult financial situation JAL has found itself in has resulted in the reduced frequencies. After Zagreb, JAL will be moving to Ljubljana (as reported earlier). Flights to Ljubljana will operate from August through to September from cities such as Fukuoka, Sapporo, Osaka and Tokyo.
On Tuesday, June 1, Croatia Airlines commenced seasonal flights from Zagreb to the Greek capital Athens. Flights will operate 3 times per week.
