Croatia Airlines sees Athens success


Croatia Airlines handled some 22.000 passengers on its seasonal services between Croatia and Greece last year. It accounted for 50% of all travel between the two countries. The Croatian carrier welcomed 10.700 travellers between Zagreb and Athens, as well as 8.320 between Dubrovnik and the Greek capital and an additional 3.104 passengers between Split and Athens. This summer season, Croatia Airlines will maintain six weekly flights from Zagreb to Athens via Dubrovnik and one weekly service from Split. The carrier faces strong competition on all of its flights from Croatia to Greece from fellow Star Alliance member Aegean Airlines.

    So 10.700 traveled from Zagreb to Athens but it never crossed their mind to introduce non-stop flights. With connections in Zagreb they could make it work quite easily.

    1. That is so stupid. Same nonsense in ZAG-DBV-FCO and ZAG-SPU-FCO flights.

      Upravo tako.

      How would they get the aircraft from ZAG to DBV to operate the DBV-ATH service or SPU-FCO without having an aircraft sitting there?

      From one of the many daily ZAG-DBV/SPU?

      How OU operates SPU-FRA or DBV-CDG?

      If they utilize the unit to fly directly between Zagreb and Athens, how would they feed major European hubs from Dubrovnik, Split and Rijeka directly? Keeping Lufthansa happy is more important for OU management then to develop its own company and network.

    Bravo Hrvatska!

  3. Dakle OU uspjeh, a JP prestala letit jedno 3g natrag. Kad OU uspije tamo di je netko drugi propao najbolje ključ u bravu

  4. Finnaly they realized that flights to Germany are not bread giving and that they should fly where there is demand to fly and not where there is political will to fly.
