Lufthansa Celebrating 50 Years in Croatia

German flag carrier Lufthansa is celebrating 50 years of doing business in Croatia this year.

The Lufthansa – Croatia relationship first started on 25 August 1967 when the first flight from Frankfurt, a Boeing 727 Europa Jet, landed in Zagreb.

Since then, Lufthansa has connected Croatia via its Frankfurt and Munich hubs with more than 200 destinations around the world, and via its European hubs to more than 308 destinations in 103 countries.

Lufthansa general manager for Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia, Bernhard Wodl, told Hina that Lufthansa currently operates 50 flights per week in Croatia.

“We are happy with the results we have achieved in Croatia, we work well together and fly to the larger airports of Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Pula and Zadar, and this year we have increased the number of flights,” Wodl says.

Lufthansa, as announced by Wodl, is also preparing to celebrate the special anniversary during the summer months on the streets of Zagreb with a number of special promotions offering discounted flights. Several charity events are also planned.

“In addition to high quality of service and safety, Lufthansa takes account of socially responsible behavior in every country where it operates, so on the occasion of 50 anniversary in Croatia at the Zagreb Children’s and Youth Rehabilitation Center, where 50 people are residing daily, Lufthansa staff will paint the walls of the premises, and the Centre will hand-make photo frames with a message of Lufthansa’s 50th anniversary, to be presented at the closing event and celebration in September this year, “Wodl reveals.

Lufthansa, which also owns Austrian Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines, Brussels Airlines, and Eurowings including Germanwings, is the largest airline in Europe, in terms of fleet size, and the second largest airline in terms of passengers carried during 2016.
