Possible flights between Croatia and Belgrade this summerOn January 26, the CEO of Croatia Airlines, Srećko Šimunović, will hold talks with the acting CEO of Jat Airways, Vladimir Ognjenović, in Belgrade. Ognjenović states that the two will hold talks in regards to possible new flights between Belgrade and the Croatian coast. “We hope that the end result of the talks will lead to a combined flight offering on behalf of our carriers between our countries”, Ognjenović said. It is believed that Jat is interested in commencing seasonal summer flights from Belgrade to Pula, Dubrovnik and Rijeka while Croatia Airlines would be granted rights to operate all year round flights from Zagreb. Jat last operated flights to Croatia in 2008 with services to Pula. The airline was not granted rights for planned summer flights to Dubrovnik in 2009 and stayed out of Croatia in 2010. Croatia Airlines has never operated scheduled flights to Belgrade.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Adria Airways, Tadej Tufek, has resigned from his post and the Slovenian carrier has been named insolvent as banks have rejected to provide any new loans to Adria. More news relating to this development will be published tomorrow.
