The national carrier of Spain, Iberia, has announced that it will introduced seasonal summer flights from its base at Madrid’s Barajas Airport to Croatia’s capital Zagreb. The new flights should commence on the 4th of July and will cease at the end of the 2009 summer season in late October. Flights will operate twice a week. Adding to this, Iberia will continue its seasonal summer charters this year from Madrid to Dubrovnik, 3 times per week. A third city in Spain will be connected to Croatia this year as well. Croatia Airlines’ Zagreb to Barcelona line will commence in late March and the low-cost ClickAir from Spain will operate daily flights to Dubrovnik from Barcelona.

During 2008, 166.000 tourists from Spain visited Croatia, an increase of 10% compared to 2007. Zagreb Airport is currently served by 13 airlines. This will increase during the summer months.
