Low-Cost Airline Air Croatia Set for Christmas Launch

Croatia160Low-cost startup airline Air Croatia, who earlier this year postponed their scheduled June launch, are set to start flying this Christmas, reports EX-YU Aviation News…

Air Croatia had earlier this year started selling tickets for flights from Gothenburg and Stockholm to Split and Zagreb, and were set to operate during the summer season from June to October.

“Those flights have been postponed since May due to low amount of bookings and some technical problems connecting our booking system and flights to many of the major search engines, which made it too risky and difficult to sell only through our website. The routes that are shown on our website are for live testing with IATA and GDS and customers are not able to pay, just to make test bookings”, the Swedish-operated airline said earlier this year, before adding.

“It is a little bit sad to see that we have 100+ bookings per day now when the flights have been postponed until next summer”.

Air Croatia will now aim to launch this Christmas, and will add services to Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Prague, and Düsseldorf from its Zagreb hub, and to Helsinki Vantaa, Bucharest Otopeni, Stockholm Arlanda, and Belgrade from next Easter.
