Aegean upgrades Zagreb service

NEWS FLASH


Aegean Airlines has upgraded its new service between Athens and Zagreb from seasonal to year-round operations. The carrier will continue serving the Croatian capital past the summer, with two weekly flights. Some 14.800 passengers travelled indirectly between the two cities last year. Aegean previously told EX-YU Aviation News it would extend the service depending on its performance. Recently, Spain's Iberia also announced it was upgrading its seasonal flights between Madrid and Zagreb to year-round operations.

    1. OU should abandon Athens flights altogether and focus on flights that Croatian citizens use the most. This is pure tourist line.

    2. No, you can not rely solely on tourism.

      There are flights to HAM, TXL, SVO, IST from Zagreb. It would be stupid to compete there if there are routes that are not served from Zagreb:

      Manchester
      Toulouse
      Gothenburg
      Geneva
      Kiev
      Sofija
      Tirana
      Priština
      Podgorica
      Tuzla

      or are undeserved:
      Mostar - should be at least 6pw
      Pula from LSZ - 7pw all year + PUY nonstop 5pw in summer
      Zadar from BWK - 7pw all yar + ZAD nonstop 5pw in summer
      Sarajevo - 14pw all yaer
      Milan - all year
      Bucharest - all year
      Stockholm - all year
      Helsinki - all year
      Dublin - all year
      Tel Aviv - all year

      Tourist lines don't operate on 1st and 3rd days of week. Apparently (unlike you) Aegean considers the route as a potential business route (I say potential due to the low frequency).

      Delete
    7. I don't see any potential for business route. Too little business ties between Croatia and Greece.

      Sometimes I think Alen, you're totally clueless,

      ""

      Zadar from BWK - 7pw

      Really Alen, plz it is embarrassing.

    9. Is this really Alen? Must be some impersonator, luckily we can recognize this by the incompetence of the posts!

    1. Also,Lufthansa is extending the 2nd daily rotation LH 1404/05 throughout the entire winter (last year it only operated this 2nd rotation in December and March).

  7. By now ZAG has built the most extensive network in ex YU. Congrats ZAG!

    1. I don't think that's true.

      Delete
    2. Um it actually is. Compare the list of destinations.

      Delete
    3. Belgrade has around 80 destinations and Zagreb over 50. How is that more extensive network?

      Delete
    4. @AnonymousJune 7, 2018 at 5:02 PM


      NO!!!

      Zagreb needs to get more carriers in and more destinations to come even close to Belgrade, which has what 95 destinations served.

      Zagreb has 65 destinations, we still need:

      TAP: Lisbon
      Alitalia, Bologna, Roma, Milano
      SAS, Oslo, Stockholm,
      Air Baltic, - Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius
      WOW, - Reykjavik
      Aer Lingus - Dublin
      Finnair - Helsinki
      Tarom - Bucharest,
      Bulgarian - Sofia
      Vueling - Valencia
      Transavia France - Lyon, Marseilles, Nice,
      EasyJet - London GTW, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh
      Hianan Airlines - Beijing, Shanghai
      Singapore Airlines - Singapore
      ANA - Tokyo, Osaka
      Air India/Indigo - Delhi, Mumbai
      Delta - NYC, Chicago
      Thai Air - Bangkok


      If Zagreb had all these carriers and these destinations, then you can argue Zagreb has most extensive network in the region.
      When all these carriers show up, and start service to Zagreb, it'll be the most extensive network in the region but also most comprehensive too, as it'll give access to all 3 continents, Asia, North America and Europe.

      One can only hope, dream and keep fingers crossed, one day.

    5. Why not include Iran?

      Delete
    6. @AnonymousJune 7, 2018 at 6:55 PM

      They already fly to Zagreb, Qashim Air or something connecting Zagreb with Tehran.

      Delete
    7. Wasn't that last year, I think Qeshm did not return this year.

      Delete
    8. My bad then, add Iran air then

      Delete
    9. IR isn't flying to ZAG. There are no flights to Iran this year.

      Delete
    10. Exactly my point. And judging how BEG profited from flights from Iran I would like to see that repeated at ZAG!

      Delete
    11. It can't happen because ties between Croatia and Iran are nowhere close to those between Serbia and Iran. Mind you, Serbia and Iran are about to sign a free trade agreement so there is going to be even more demand for flights.

      Delete
    12. What's so special about agreements between Serbia and Iran? What sort of export/import are these supporting?

      Delete
    13. A vidi....broj iranaca u sumama BiH naglo porastao

      Delete
  8. Bravo, ZAG! Great year so far!
