Croatia anticipates Baku flights

NEWS FLASH


The Croatian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign and European Affairs, Marija Pejčinović Burić, has said that seasonal flights between Zagreb and Azerbaijan's capital Baku will likely commence next year. Ms Pejčinović Burić noted, "We expect a continuous rise in the number of Azerbaijani tourists and business people visiting Croatia, and vice versa. Therefore, I believe that next year seasonal direct flights from Baku to Zagreb and other destinations such as Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar or Pula are feasible". In 2012, Azerbaijan's national carrier AZAL operated charter flights to Split, once every ten days over the summer. Within the former Yugoslavia, the airline maintains seasonal flights to Tivat.

    2. What I don't get is if the government negotiated this, why didn't they offer for our own carrier to fly the route?! Or they didn't care?

  2. They also had charters to ZAD a few years ago..

    1. You forgot to add "poorer" too.
      As much as I would like direct flight to TBS, I don't think they are going to happen any time soon.
      As for direct flight GYB - ZAG I don't see that is going to happen next year.

    2. Da si ikad bio u oba grada, ne biš pitao ovakve gluposti. Bez uvrijede.
      @anon 12.24: nije GYB nego GYD

  8. Azal operates twice weekly Baku to JFK on 777. If their loads are not satisfactory on nonstop, maybe they can do it via ZAG. Or DBV?

    1. I think that's what they are after. The government said flights to JFK are coming soon.

    2. Odakle ti informacija o 777? Ono što ja vidim na Wikipedii Azal ima A340, B767 te B787

    3. Sorry, my bad. Lete JFK sa Dreamlinerom, moja greska, nenamjerno :)

    4. Sve u redu. Ali kad ti moram kontrirati, uvijek se pitam da nisam možda ja pogriješio. :)

  9. Meni se sve to čini kao vladna PR patka. AZAL ne leti za VIE, ne leti za MUC, ne leti za FRA, ne leti za BUD itd itd, pa će za ZAG???
    Interes u HRV za Azerbajdžan je minimalan, Azerbajdžanci (prema onom što sam čuo od njih i što mi kažu kolege što rade s njima) puno teže dođu do viza nego recimo Rusi, a do Turske mogu bez viza, dosta jeftino, a nema ni jezične barijere.
    Više bi smisla imao npr. SVX. Tamo ima dosta tranzitnih turista iz Kine, koji lete prema centralnoj Europi

    1. Politicari najcesce lazu i/ili pricaju gluposti, slazem se. Ali, vezano na ono sto si rekao : "Pravi" turisti (bogatiji) dobiju vize bez problema, ja sam bio u Bakuu dva puta, jednom sam sreo u centru jednog naseg momka. A ako bi bilo pameti u Krovacije za suradnju mogli bi Azere vozit preko ZAG za MUC FRA i VIE - barem za tamo ima po 5 letova dnevno.

    2. Evo za transferne putnike se slažem 100%. Sad da oni bogatiji dobivaju vize bez problema se također slažem. Pitanje pak je da li ima dovoljno onih bogatijih koji žele u HRV da bi se linija isplatila.
      Nemam neke brojke, ovo je sve osjećaj (što čitam, što čujem itd.), ali čini mi se da su tamo u ovom trenutku na transfernom tržištu strašno jaki Turci, pa iza njih Ukrajinci. Ukrajinci su puno jeftiniji. BY također leti tamo i sigurno nešto ulovi.
