The first flight in the new Dublin-Zagreb route launched by Croatia Airlines landed just after 2 pm on Thursday in the Croatian capital.
The were no scheduled flights between the two capitals but due to the growing Croatian diaspora in Ireland and an increase in tourists to Croatia from Ireland, Croatia’s national carrier have introduced a Dublin – Zagreb route for the first time in its history.
Croatia Airlines operated several charter flights between Osijek and Dublin over the Christmas period in 2016/2017.
From 3 May until 25 October Croatia Airlines will fly between Dublin and Zagreb on Thursdays and Sundays.
Passengers can fly to Dublin from Split and Dubrovnik with the flight going via Zagreb.
