Newcomer Air Croatia, which is to inaugurate services on June 28, will launch additional new routes this summer season. The airline will compliment its flights from Gothenburg to Zagreb, Split and Zadar with a new one weekly service from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to both the Croatian capital and Split. Flights will operate every Saturday until August 30. “Plans are to expand operations to all year round flights on Saturdays, once per week, from Gothenburg and Stockholm to Split and Zagreb in October”, the airline said in a statement. Further flight details for the Stockholm - Zagreb service can be found here, with additional information on the Split flights available here.
Air Croatia will operate on a low cost basis with food, coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages available for purchase on board. Passengers will be able to check-in twenty kilos of luggage free of charge. The airline will utilise a ČSA Czech Airlines Airbus A319 for its operations this summer as well as its crew. Air Croatia becomes the only airline to offer direct flights between Zagreb and Stockholm as well as Gothenburg. Tickets for the new flights are already on sale. Originally, the airline was to innaugurate services on June 14 but has pushed back its launch date by two weeks.
In addition to the abovementioned routes, Air Croatia ha announced plans to operate charters from Gothenburg to Dubrovnik and Pula. Furthermore, the Dutch based Denim Air is expected to 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 this summer until the end of September and run services from Southern Italy to Dubrovnik in cooperation with Italian tour operators.
