Croatia Airlines resumes services from Zagreb to Athens
On 22 April, Croatia Airlines relaunched services connecting the Croatian and Greek capitalsZagreb (ZAG) and Athens (ATH), a route that it last served in 2010. The weekly operation complements the twice-weekly services the carrier offers via Dubrovnik, and will be operated with A319s. Athens becomes the first destination launched from Zagreb by the Croatian flag carrier since its service to Istanbul started last May. The new route comes shortly after an Aéroports de Paris-led consortium Zagreb Airport International Company was awarded the concession to construct new passenger terminal at Croatia Airlines’ hub. There is no competition on the route; in fact, it was only ever served by one other carrier, JAT, which flew the route between 1984 and 1990.
