Osijek-Zagreb Flight Returns After 26-Years

OsijekFor the first time in 26 years a flight bound for the Croatian capital Zagreb has taken off from Osijek Airport in eastern Croatia.

The newly established flight service will be subsidised for the next 3 years by the government to the tune of 9 million kuna (1.2 million EUR) a year.The Zagreb-Osijek flight service, operated by Zagreb-based charter carrier Trade Air, will offer daily flights, with services dropping to 3 times per week during the winter period. Return tickets cost around 100 euro.

Monday’s first flight in 26 years is just the start of major investment plans for the Osijek Airport. An Indonesian business delegation recently visited Osijek, where they have expressed interest in investing in the city’s airport to use it as a gateway for goods from Indonesia and China into Central and Eastern Europe, but also to open up a channel for the distribution of Croatian products to markets of 1.7 billion people in Asia.
