ZAGREB, 22 January 2020 – Air France is to considerably expand its services to Croatia this summer, making it the third year for growth in operations in the country.
As EX-YU Aviation reports, the French carrier will boost frequencies on services from Paris to Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split. Air France will launch a second daily flight between Paris and Zagreb from May 5.
“As a result, the aircraft arriving in the evening will stay the night in Zagreb before embarking on its return journey early the next morning. Both daily services will be run by Airbus A320-family aircraft. At the same time, Croatia Airlines will continue to operate one daily flight between the two cities,” EX-YU Aviation writes.
Air France are also boosting their operations between Paris and Dubrovnik. Seasonal flights between the two cities will commence in 2020 on 29 March and will initially operate twice per week, up from one last year, before increasing to daily in mid-July, representing an increase of two additional weekly flights.
The French carrier will also resume seasonal services from Paris to Split which were launched last year. Flights will start this summer on 14 July and will be maintained up to six times per week, up from three weekly flights in 2019. In total, Air France will run an additional five weekly rotations to the Croatian coast this summer.
“Growth is happening in both directions. More people are travelling to the world, but also many people are visiting the region – from both a leisure and business perspectives. The area is developing nicely, and I only see further growth possibilities in the future”, the General Manager for Air France, KLM and Transavia for Alps, Balkans and Central Europe, Thijs Komen, said recently.
