ZAGREB, 11 May 2020 – Canadian holiday airline Air Transat has announced that it has delayed its service to the Croatian capital this summer.
According to exyuaviation.com, Air Transat has pushed back its service from Toronto to Zagreb by a month, until 2 July 2020 due to the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.
Last week the airline’s temporary suspension of all flights was extended until June 30, 2020. The airline said on its website:
“If you were unable to travel due to the cancellation of our flights, we are providing a flight credit for travel within 24 months of your original return date. These are extraordinary circumstances, when all airlines and travel companies have been forced to temporarily halt or drastically reduce their operations, as a result of travel restrictions still in place, as well as the continued uncertainty about when the borders will reopen, both in Canada and at the destinations to which we fly.
This unprecedented situation is well beyond our control; we believe that the 24-month credit is an acceptable solution, and we are confident that our customers will be able to travel again in the near future, once the crisis passes.”
The airline now plans to fly to the Croatian capital three times per week until mid-September, after which services will run up to two times per week until late October. Further changes remain highly likely, exyuaviation.com reported.
Last month, Air Canada’s leisure subsidiary Air Canada Rouge suspended its service to Croatia for the rest of 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. American Airlines announced earlier in the month that they had suspended their service between Philadelphia and Dubrovnik for 2020.
