The world’s largest international airline, Emirates, is set to launch year-round flights between Dubai and Zagreb this summer season, EX-YU Aviation reports.
The Dubai – Zagreb daily service will start on 1 June 2017. A 364-seat Boeing 777-300 aircraft, which includes 12 first class and 42 business class seats, will be used to for the flights.
Emirates will offer passengers from Croatia connections to over 150 destinations spread over six continents via its hub in Dubai, however, EX-YU Aviation says its main target will be connecting passengers to and from Australia and Asia.
Emirates will become the only airline to connect Dubai with Zagreb after Flydubai last year suspended its service.
Emirates will have no direct competition on the route, but it will battle for business with Qatar Airways, which will operate nine weekly flights to Zagreb from Doha.
