The letter by the unions was written several hours before the airline’s management board elected Srećko Šimunović as the company’s new CEO. The unions conclude their letter by saying that Croatia Airlines has a bright future ahead of it but needs responsible people with a clear vision to run the carrier. The letter has been signed by the union of Croatia Airlines cabin crew, pilots, mechanics and the union of Croatian aviation industry employees. The Prime Minister’s office has not responded to the letter yet.

Angry unions write to PM
Will the new CEO change how things are run?Four Croatia Airlines unions have written a letter to the country’s Prime Minister, Jadranka Kosor, expressing their worry about the airline’s current state. “While Croatian airports report record growth and the tourist season is one of the best on record, Croatia Airlines’ financial losses continue to mount. Passenger numbers continue to decline, aircraft are not being utilised and we are handing over routes to other airlines”, the letter reads. The unions say that the management has no vision for the airline’s future and lacks the knowledge on how to undo previous mistakes.
