Pragusa.One to offer three-class product as it readies for launch


Pragusa.One is preparing to launch operations next month with ticket sales for its flights from Dubrovnik to Newark and Los Angeles to commence on Monday. Services to Newark, which will begin on June 21, will be operated by the Airbus A330-200 aircraft and will offer passengers a business and economy class product with one-way tickets starting at 3.890 US dollars and 790 dollars, respectively. The Los Angeles flights, which are to be inaugurated on June 22 with the Airbus A340 jet, will also feature a first class cabin, with fares starting at 9.990 dollars. Interest for the flights can already be expressed via the airline’s website.


Commenting on its launch plans, Pragusa.One’s Managing Director, KreŇ°imir Budinski, told “Total Croatia News”, “So far, over 2.000 individuals have registered to travel with Pragusa.One. Dozens of US travel agents received our full travel package offers and we expect to sell our capacity in the next thirty days. Pragusa.One’s total incoming capacity is 30.400 seats”. Mr Budinski noted there would be enough space for three airlines to operate flights to New York this summer, with United to commence operations from Newark and Delta from JFK Airport in July. “There is a lot of demand for all three companies. All three will have a total capacity of 50.000 seats from the US to Dubrovnik until the end of October 2021”, Mr Budinski noted.

Next year, the carrier plans to significantly expand its operations, with services from the United States, Africa and Asia to Europe. “Our long-term plan is to have nonstop flights from Los Angeles, New York, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Beijing, Chengdu, and Tokyo in 2022. We will operate from two bases - Prague and Dubrovnik - with a fleet of A330 and A350 aircraft. Alongside that, we will put a special focus on the development of the Chinese market and a special A350 sub fleet to operate just to China”, Mr Budinski concluded, adding that its planned operations for next month are 99% certain to go ahead.

    "2.000 individuals have registered to travel"

    A great way to give an impression it's ticket sales, when it's probably people registering on the website or some similar bullshit statistic like that.

    And that business class product... gosh.

    This is getting more and more fishy.

    What they seem to not (or maybe choose to ignore) is that they are offering the European style charter service from the US. This I am sure is illegal as they will be regarded by the US authorities as an RPT (regular public transport) operation not charter and will than need to be RPT approved which is a completely different league to charter.

    We could see something very similar happen to that other airline that got stopped from taking-off out of Chicago on their inaugural flight.

    This at the level of Monty Payton comedy. It is either you give a cash in exchange for promise of flight or not. "Registering to travel" does not exist as a category in any business transaction.
