Air Croatia to launch new flights

Air Croatia to link Stockholm with Zagreb and Split

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.

  2. I can't believe Croatia Airlines does not fly to Stockholm. Glad another airline will take their place when they are incapable of doing anything right or anything Lufthansa doesn't give them blessing for.

      I'd prefer Lufthansa and any major European airline over Ethiad/Emirates any day.

  3. New airline companies are showing huge interest for destinations in Croatia, especially ones on the coast. Air Serbia even of first 8-10 flights to Dubrovnik and Split in May had load factor of up to 85%. And peak season is yet to come.

  6. Owner of Air Croatia is big and powerful tourist company from Sweden. They have money, most of passengers would be tourist they already have but instead using other companies they will fly with their planes now, they have rating so passengers are not afraid of buying tickets with them.

    So, what are your arguments? Most of strange bloggers on this blog would say that you are troll and just hatter! Or that is when someone is writhing just about Air Serbia?

    1. Pre svega, vlasnik slotova na IST nije sam aerodrom vec Turska vlada, koja je i zajednicki vlasnik Turkish Airlines-a. Kada se jedna kompanija povuce, vlada preuzima slotove u svoje vlasnistvo i ona naravno stiti svoju sopstvenu kompaniju. Samo da se podsetimo da je ista vlada zabranila petu slobodu (prodaju karata) na liniji Ankara-Beograd Katar Ervejzu - dakle protekcionizam u Turskoj je uzasan. Skoro je da ne poverujem da vi u ovom clanku se izjasnjavate kao advokat TK-a i kritikujete Air Serbiju zasto uopste trazi da se vrati na Atatuk(?!), prosto neverovatno. A sa druge strane dizete nevidjenu buku kada se tarife za Wizz Air izjednace sa drugim prevoznicima u Beogradu! Sta biste rekli recimo, da vlada Srbije odluci da izbaci Wizz Air u Nis ili Batajnicu? Uporedite vase statove i duple standarde. Dejstva koja ste najostrije kritikovali kod srpske vlade, opravdavate i branike kod turske. Da li sam ja pogresno primetio ili je vas domen aviokarta.TR? Dakle, da nastavim: TK je odnevadno zapoceo letove sa Sabihe ne zbog kapaciteta na Ataturku koliko da konkurise Pegasusu na O-D heavy rutama kao Kiev, CIS, turske gasterbajter rute u zapadnoj Evropi itd. Dakle jedno nema veze sa drugim. SAW je i dalje primarno low-cost aerodrom, koji se nalazi na uzasnoj udaljenosti od grada i skoro bez biznis putnika. Air Serbija je u ovom slucaju bila zrtva niceg drugog do blatantnog protekcionizma od strane turkish vlasti i ne pokusavajte to da prikrijete na drugi nacin. Sramota. Paralelno, TK u Srbiji uziva sve slobode. Ne vidim zasto TK+PC takodje ne bi dobile zajedno samo 7 slotova po reciprocitetu pa izvolite. Siguran sam da bi se nasli slotovi za JU dok nismo ni trepnili, i vi to veoma dobro znate. Odluka vlasti je pravilna. (No, ako jedno ne razumem sa srpske strane je zasto su napustili prethodne petonedeljne slotove koji nisu bili ni malo losi.)

    3. Slotovi na Sabihi koje JU ima su katastrofalni. Na let koji je u 16:30 (najgore vreme) morate iz centra Istanbula sa evropske strane krenuti najkasnije u 13h. Em je aerodrom daleko u tri lepe em upadate u gužve kakve se retko gde sreću na svetu a za razliku od Ataturka Sabiha nema metro (ima samo do pola puta)

    4. The comment wasn't published on Aviokarta.net So much about the freedom of speech.

    5. The slots they had at Ataturk were very good (though at different times of the day). Hope they resolve this issue as soon as possible. If TK was to leave BEG or be limited to 4/w alongside Pegasus, i'm sure Air Serbia, Etihad, Qatar, Aeroflot and others would be more than happy to fill the gap. Turkish has much more to loose than Air Serbia here.

    6. Razlog Zasto turci zezaju air srbiju a istovremeno izvlace maksimum od trzista putnika i turista u srbiji je izdajnicki karakter srpskih vazduhoplovnih menadzera , prodace sve sto treba samo da ostanu tu gde su i da kradu i otimaju. Ali nije bitno, kad tad cemo raspraviti....

    7. It is not true that Turkish Airlines just start to fly to Sabiha Gokcen. Turkish was first company to fly to Sabiha whan they open, and since than number of flights are bigger and bigger every year.

    8. TK should be revoked of their landing rights in BEG and allowed to land only in INI - if they want.

      BTW air Serbia isn't flying to Zagreb or Amsterdam via Zagreb, why would you even bring Air Serbia in to this is unclear but clearly his brain works on sljivovica and Slobo.

    3. Maybe cause the guy asked about Air Serbia as well, as to the number of passengers he meant for the both flights, there and back, so it doesn't not exceed the number of seats, at least on the Air Serbia flight, don't know for the cityHoopper. ^ ^

      how could you, didn't you know you're not allowed to criticize the glorious Air Serbia in any way, they're the best ever airline that has ever existed and all its planes are brand produced by United Arab Emirates, gilded with gold and silver.

    2. Reminds me of LH business class seats. There will always be people that want to complain. I do wonder why this person keeps flying with an airline he is not satisfied with. Maybe he did mention, but couldn't read all this.

      Btw, http://knightofmalta.wordpress.com/2014/04/17/air-serbia-business-class-a-320-zurich-to-belgrade/

    3. This negativity by our people is getting a bit old. As Ive mentioned before, Jat was not good, and now Air Serbia is not good, so what is good? What is ironic is that the seat shown in the first picture is from the B733 which has taken the same seats from LH! So is that as well saying that LH is abad airline, or 'bezobrazluk' on behalf of LH?

      What is amazing is the fact that he is angry as he 'payed' for an A319 but got the B733 instead. EK have replaced the A380 with the B77W on a flight to HKG i was on, as well as LH who sent me on an Avro and CRJ900 instead of a ERJ190, and EY who put a A320 on my flight to BEG, and how dare TK put the A330 on flights to SKP when it was supposed to be the A319, let alone the arrogance of OS sending the B772 to PRN when those pax had booked the F100! Just typical Serbian villager trash talk, its becoming the national sport it seems!

      Air Serbia is far from Jat but far from perfect. Im happy to see the fast turn around in the past 7 months, and hope they expand more enabling them to employ more unemployed youth in Serbia.
