New destinations for Jat and Croatia

Croatia Airlines to Moscow, Jat to London Gatwick
The national carriers of Serbia and Croatia will be launching new destinations during the 2012 summer season.

Jat Airways will be heading to London Gatwick Airport next summer which will accompany its nine weekly flights to London’s Heathrow Airport. Plans for Jat to commence flights to London’s second largest airport were made a year ago when Wizz Air launched flights from London Luton to Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport while British Airways suspended the London – Belgrade route, hit by increased competition. London is one of Jat’s most popular destinations with an extremely high load factor. The two weekly flights to London Gatwick will be inaugurated on March 29, according to the airline’s preliminary summer timetable. It joins Malta, Tripoli, Dubai, Split and Pula as the Serbian carrier’s new additions next summer. Flight details can be found here.

Meanwhile, Croatia Airlines is set to expand eastwards with the flag carrier finalising plans to launch flights to the Russian capital Moscow. The airline will utilise its fleet sharing agreement with Adria Airways this summer in order to launch the new route. Croatia Airlines is set to lease Adria’s Airbus A319s. Besides launching flights to Moscow, Croatia Airline is also planning to open new flights from Dubrovnik to Munich and Zadar to Paris. More new destinations in Eastern Europe are planned for the 2012 summer season.


  1. Wizz Air flies to Luton, not Stansted.

  2. Croatia Airlines and Jat should merge and fly together.

  3. Which source defines that OU will lease both Adria's Airbuses A319, because I can't find any reliable source about that.


  4. A guy well connected with Croatia, Miha ;)

  5. Joint market, synergy effect
