Croatia Airlines Cuts Istanbul And London Connections

Croatia’s financially troubled national carrier Croatia Airlines has cut two of its services connecting the Croatian capital with Istanbul in Turkey and London in the UK, reports aviokarte.hr.

The last Zagreb – Istanbul flight will take place on 30 March and Croatia Airlines has already started cancelling ticket sales for the route. After a 11-year break, Croatia Airlines resumed its service from Zagreb to Istanbul in March 2011.

There is also bad news for UK travelers. From 1 April this year Croatia Airlines will stop flying from Zagreb to London Gatwick. Its London Heathrow service will continue. The terminations are part of large-scale restructuring after the company was reportedly steering down the barrel of bankruptcy. The word on the street is that its Zagreb – Paris and Zagreb – Copenhagen connections are also not profitable and may face the same fate after the summer. This summer Croatia Airlines will fly from Pula to Hamburg and Frankfurt in Germany and also Paris.
