Korean Air B777-200 soon in ZagrebThe national carrier of South Korea, Korean Air, will operate two charter flights from Seoul to Zagreb. Carrying a full load of tourists to the Croatian capital, Korean Air will treat the flights as a trial for a possible introduction of summer charters between Seoul and Zagreb in 2011. The flights will be carried out on Saturday, September 18 and 25. Both flights will be operated by the Boeing B777-200. If Zagreb manages to attract Korean Air for the 2011 summer season it would be another win for the airport. It will be the first time that Korean Air will operate flights to the Croatian capital.
Currently, JAL has been operating summer charters from Japan to Zagreb and Dubrovnik. The Japanese national carrier conducted a total of five charters to Zagreb this summer from Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima and Sapporo with the Boeing B747-400. JAL has also operated flights from Japan to Ljubljana this summer, from the end of August to the beginning of September.
