ZAGREB, April 2 (Hina) – Croatian nationals, who are still in Italy and Span, the two European hotspots of the spread of COVID-19, as well as Croatians in Portugal and Sweden will be transported on Croatia Airlines planes back to Zagreb on Saturday, the Croatian Foreign and European Affairs Ministry stated on Thursday.
Thus, three commercial repatriation flights are scheduled for the afternoon on 4 April.
The routes of the flights are Zagreb-Rome-Zagreb, Zagreb-Lisbon-Madrid-Zagreb and Zagreb-Stockholm-Zagreb.
