On 26 May, Zagreb Airport welcomed with a special drinks reception in the terminal, the arrival of KLM’s daily flights from Amsterdam. Addressing the audience shortly after the first flight’s landing is Bruno Mazurkiewicz, President, MZLZ.
- KLM expanded its European offering with two new routes on 26 May, both of which were launched from its Amsterdam (AMS) hub and operated by its 100-seat E190s. With the longest sector being the 1,154-kilometre service to Bilbao (BIO), and the shortest being inaugurated to Zagreb (ZAG) at 1,101 kilometres, both routes will be operated daily. While the service to Spain will face competition from Vueling’s thrice-weekly flights, the airport pair to Croatia is already served by Croatia Airlines with daily operations. The flights to Zagreb are scheduled to be operated until 25 October. Commenting on the route launch to Zagreb, Bruno Mazurkiewicz, President, MZLZ, said: “Welcoming a new airline is always a reason for celebration. We demonstrated it by a water salute upon arrival. KLM flew to Zagreb 52 years ago and it is our great honour to welcome this famous airline again in Croatia.” See how Zagreb Airport’s FTWA compares to the other airports in this week’s Arch of Triumph competition.
