Air Croatia to launch on June 14

Air Croatia ready for takeoff

Newcomer Air Croatia is preparing to launch flights from Sweden to Croatia this June with ticket sales to begin next Monday. ČSA Czech Airlines will operate on behalf of Air Croatia this summer with flights to be launched from Gothenburg to Zagreb and Split with an Airbus A319. Services will operate on a regular basis, every Saturday, starting June 14. Further details for the Gothenburg - Zagreb service can be found here with additional information on the Split flights available here. Services from Stockholm to the Croatian capital, as well as Split, will be inaugurated in October. “Plans are to expand operations to all year round on Saturdays, once per week, from Gothenburg and Stockholm to Split and Zagreb in October”, the airline said in a statement.

In addition to the abovementioned routes, Air Croatia will operate charters from Gothenburg to Dubrovnik and Pula. Furthermore, Denim Air will fly smaller groups and charters from Sweden and Norway to Dubrovnik and Zadar on behalf of Air Croatia and the airline will also cooperate with another Croatian newcomer, Adriatic Skyways, on domestic flights within the country. Air Croatia also hopes to set up flights from Zagreb to Tel Aviv from June through to September as well as services from Southern Italy to Dubrovnik in cooperation with Italian tour operators.

Air Croatia will operate on a low cost basis. Food, coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase on board. Passengers will be able to check-in twenty kilos of luggage free of charge. In essence, Air Croatia is a Swedish tour operator specialising in holiday packages to Croatia which will lease a Czech Airlines aircraft and crew. Air Croatia will be the only airline offering direct flights from Zagreb to Stockholm and Gothenburg.

  1. An 8th year would create a better logo than this... looks like back in the 70-80s

    1. Yeah, agree, logo looks like a 70's chicken soup contest.

    2. Everytime I see it, I think of Air Canada for some reason.

    3. It reminds me a lot of the little icon on the right above "New route launches" :D

    4. I wouldn't mind if everything in civil aviation today resembled more to 70-80's, not only this logo :)

  2. I wonder if this airline would be established if Croatia Airlines had its own flights to Sweden (scheduled ones). I am sure they could have spared at least one A319 for two weekly flights to Stockholm and one weekly flight to Gothenburg. Heck, they could have even launched one of those triangular routes.They are not very popular, or cheap, but it would be better than no flights at all.

    If I had to guess, I would say that it will not take long before they establish a base in Zagreb with at least one aircraft there. I hope this airline survives, somehow I like them.

  3. Still don't understand how Croatia Airlines doesn't fly to Sweden?!?! There must be a market for flights from Croatia.

    1. Of course there is a market for flights from Croatia to Sweden. The answer to your question is : SAS, Norwegian and Ryanair fly on regular flights with approximation of 3 DAILY flights between the two countries. Plus numerous charters. All these companies have better business models and better management than OU, and therefore there is simply no more space left for OU in that market. Their market share is about 0,5% with CPH transit passengers on their daily flights.

  4. Best of luck to Air Croatia :) Always good to have more competition and more options.

  5. It will be really interesting to see how all these new airlines - Air Croatia, Adriatic Skyways, maybe even Libertas sometime in the future will affect Croatia Airlines. Air Croatia seems serious to open year long flights

  8. JU to launch BEY on June 1, 2014.

    Nacionalna aviokompanija Er Srbija najavila je danas da će dnevni letovi za Bejrut krenuti od 1. juna, a svi putnici koji imaju rezervacije za let pre tog datuma mogu da izaberu rezervisanje novog datuma.

    Do odlaganja uvođenja ove linije je došlo zbog regulatornih preduslova i proizilazećih formalnosti koje je bilo potrebno sprovesti pred početak novih letova, saopštila je Er Srbija, dodajući da se sada radi na dobijanju potrebne dokumentacije, što se privodi kraju.


    Svi putnici koji imaju rezervacije za putovanje pre 1. juna obavešteni su o novom datumu otpočinjanja ovih letova. U skladu sa rezervacionim pravilima, svim ovim gostima će biti ponuđen izbor rezervisanja novog datuma, preusmeravanja, ili povraćaja novca, navela je srpska aviokompanija.

    1. In Air Serbia we trust!March 6, 2014 at 9:08 PM

      Dakle nije reč o bezbednosti, političkoj nestabilnosti i ratu, kako rekoše prvi put, nego o administrativnim problemima i neprofesionalnosti Air Serbije da reši admnistrativne začkuljice. Šta im onda beše da govore o ratu i terorizmu? Samo se osramotiše i izblamiraše. Odma brate priznaj "nismo sposobni za igru u velikoj ligi i nismo stigli sve da napravimo". Nije prvi put da Air Delay stvari pomiće radi nesposobnosti svojih ljudi. Pa na početku je i Erbas bio prizemljen radi istih tih nesposobnjakovića. Da ne spominjemo pomicanje prodaje karata, početka letova. Lele, bre, sramote.

    2. I still cant believe that they are seriously calling passengers "guests", and in Serbian it sounds soooo funny, especially when in the first part of the text it is passengers and in the second it is guests.
      "Svi putnici koji imaju rezervacije za putovanje pre 1. juna obavešteni su o novom datumu otpočinjanja ovih letova.

    3. A sramote. Otvore let, prodaju karte, a onda se osramote što nisu uspeli administrativne stvari da reše. Pa moraju da nadoknade putnicima karte. Kolko će to da dođe, kolko je para izgubljeno? Skupo to kada moraš da platiš da putnik leti drugom kompanijom jer si ti uprsko.

      I još putnik neće da bude srećan što ga tako izvozaše. Hoće takav putnik da leti idući put sa Air Serbijom?

      Sramota da uvedu let a nisu sposobni papire da srede. Sramota da se tako prema putnicima ponašaju. I koliko će još toga da bude?

      Delete
    4. Hoće neko da odgovara u Air Serbiji šta su počeli da prodaju karte za liniju za koju nisu uspeli da obezbede da ju pokrenu? To je težak propust. Netko mora da bude kriv što će kompanija sada da plača skupe kompenzacije, karte drugim prevoznicima, a i sramotu na imiđu radi ovog fijaska.

    5. A zbog cega osoba sa istom ip adresom pise tri komentarA?

    6. S obzirom na mržnju prema reči "guest" verovatno je ex-Jat osoblje.

    7. Hajde nismo deca. Prvo ti ne možeš da vidiš IP adresu, drugo kakiš jer nije sa iste IP adrese jer nisu ista lica. Treće samo se vi uveravajte da svi koji se pitaju što se tu muti jesu exJat osoblje. Jel vam tako lakše? Posebno zaposlenicima ove bajke kao šta je Namjee. Tako se verovatno oseča bezbedniji.

      A ne može da bude da netko drugi misli tako. Pa kako bi onda sve bilo tako savršeno. Kao što je i sve u našoj Srbiji. Svaki dan vidimo kako je sve savršeno. Živim savršeno sa 280 evra plače. I naletit ću se Er Serbijom od tog savršenstva. A makar neću da letim na kraju ću da platim račun za ovu idijotariju.

    8. Mislio sam da se u Srbiji kaze plate a ne plače...

    9. Па добро, народ је овде тврдио да нико неће преседати у Београду Ер Сербијом зато што има реч Србија у свом имену, зато што јој је база у Београду, зато што ће народ са Балкана летети преко Беча, Минхена... А ето ипак су данас регионални летови Ер Сербије пуни путника који преседају баш у том Београду.

      Ево сада иста прича и са летовима за Либан.
      Све се плашим да је више од 2.000 људи уопште знало да ће бити ових летова. То што смо ми у току не значи да су сви.

    10. Српски језик за почетнике:

      Pomiće - помиче
      šta su – што су
      da ju pokrenu – да је покрену
      Netko - неко
      da plača – да плаћа
      na imiđu – на имиџу
      zaposlenicima - запосленима
      kao šta je – као што је
      oseča bezbedniji – осећа безбедније
      netko drugi – неко други
      280 evra plače – 280 евра плате
      naletit ću se – налетећу се

  9. Poštovani,

    Ovdje nije mesto za jezikovna pitanja, ovdje se priča o aviaciji i to je to. Možda je vreme, da završite sa ovakima pravokacijama.

    Hvala

    1. Administrator odlučuje da li se priča o avaijaciji ili ne, da li se poruka briše ili ne. Mnogi komentari na ovom blogu dobiju značenje kad ne(t)ko napiše ’’ Pa kako bi onda sve bilo tako savršeno. Kao što je i sve u našoj Srbiji. Svaki dan vidimo kako je sve savršeno. Živim savršeno sa 280 evra plače.’’ Vidi se kojim su jezikom poruke stvarno napisane i odakle dolazi motivacija za ’’dobronamerne’’ komentare ’’o avijaciji’’.
