Canada’s largest domestic and international airline, Air Canada, has announced a new non-stop service to the Croatian capital.
Air Canada will commence the new seasonal service, from Toronto to Zagreb, next summer on 2 June 2018.
Flights will operate four times weekly, departing Toronto for Zagreb on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. They will run the service until 6 October 2018.
Air Canada will use its 282-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft for the new route and tickets are already now on sale with a special introductory, all-inclusive round-trip fares between Zagreb-Toronto for $799.
“Today’s announcement further solidifies Air Canada’s position as a leading global carrier. With these new services, Air Canada becomes the only North American airline flying to Romania and we are now offering the most weekly seats and frequencies from Canada to Portugal and Croatia,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
Croatia Airlines and Air Canada expanded their codeshare agreement earlier this year and the Canadian airline now has its “AC” designator code on Croatia Airlines’ flights from Zagreb to Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, London Heathrow, Paris, and Zurich, as well as from Dubrovnik to Paris and Rome, from Split to London, Paris, Rome, and Zurich, and from Rijeka to London.
Air Transat currently operate a twice-weekly service between Canada and Croatia and will be Air Canada’s competition.
