The flights will operate twice per week with all the flight details available on the right hand side in the new route launches section. The national carrier, Croatia Airlines, will be less than pleased with yet another new low cost service. Croatia Airlines has been feuding with Zagreb Airport over special fee waivers given to low cost airlines serving the airport.
Meanwhile, Wizz Air will end its operations to Zagreb on February 4. The airline will suspend its 3 weekly service from London Luton Airport.
Last week, Zagreb Pleso welcomed its 2 millionth passenger for 2010. The lucky customer, travelling on a Croatia Airlines flight to Sarajevo, was issued 2 free return tickets to a European destination. Zagreb managed to handle its 2 millionth passenger 7 days in advance to 2009. The airport has so far managed to see an increase in passengers by half of a percent.
