ZAGREB, 14 November 2021 – Air Canada has stopped ticket sales on its Toronto-Zagreb service which was set to commence next summer.
Air Canada has left out the Croatian capital from its 2022 summer schedule presentation, but continued ticket sales between until this week.
“Air Canada has discontinued ticket sales for its planned new seasonal service between Toronto and Zagreb,” EX-YU Aviation reported, before adding.
“Air Canada was to replace its leisure subsidiary Air Canada Rouge on the Zagreb service, as the latter retired all its wide-body aircraft during the height of the coronavirus pandemic last year.”
The Canadian carrier announced earlier that it would start the three times weekly service between Toronto and Zagreb in early June 2022, but warned there could be changes due to the pandemic.
“Air Canada is now offering alternatives to the Croatian capital via Amsterdam, with its codeshare partner Croatia Airlines operating the inter-European sector,” EX-YU Aviation added.
Air Transat said earlier this week that it would resume its Toronto-Zagreb service from May.
According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, in 2019, 187,145 arrivals of Canadian tourists were recorded in Croatia (14,433 more than in 2018), which resulted in a total of 482,432 overnight stays.
