Canada’s Air Transat, which is now in its second season flying between Toronto and Zagreb, will launch its second weekly flight to the Croatian capital this weekend.

Canada’s leading leisure airline commenced flights once weekly flights between Toronto and Zagreb in June 2016, and on Sunday will launch its second weekly service as demand grows.

“For a relatively new programme, it’s been going amazing. It’s performing better than most new programs and I think it’s because there’s a pent-up demand and the value is so good”, Nicole Bursey, Transat’s Commercial Director, told exyuaviation.com.

Whilst this year will see the seasonal service extend longer into the autumn, there are no plans to make it an all-year-round route.

“Our estimates show there is low demand during the winter, so we are keeping it as a seasonal service running until October (18th).”

Air Transat will operate two weekly flights for the first time between Toronto and Zagreb with its 345-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The second weekly service will run through until 3 September.

“Booking numbers are very good. There is a big Croatian community in Toronto and there is interest from Croatian travellers from both Europe and Canada”, the airline said.

Meanwhile, on the back of the demand between the two nations, Croatia Airlines and Air Canada have expanded their codeshare agreement.

The following codeshare routes will be introduced this season – Air Canada operated by Croatia Airlines – Rijeka – London Heathrow, Rijeka – Zagreb, and Split – Rome.

This will complement Air Canada’s existing codeshares on Croatia Airlines’ flights from Zagreb to Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, London Heathrow, Paris, and Zurich, as well as from Dubrovnik to Paris and Rome and from Split to London, Paris, Rome and Zurich.
