A new direct service linking the Croatian capital with the Canadian city of Toronto set to launch this summer just got a step closer to be being realised after the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) gave SkyGreece Airlines the green light to start commencing flights last week…
“The Agency is satisfied that the applicant meets all the applicable requirements. Accordingly, the Agency approves the application for a licence to operate scheduled international services between member states of the European Union and Canada”, said a CTA statement.
A direct flight service between Zagreb and Toronto will start on 22 June 2015, and continue through the tourist season until 15 October, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed after a meeting recently between Croatia’s Ambassador to Canada Veselko Grubišić, and SkyGreece Airlines representatives. A Boeing 767-300ER aircraft will be used for the route.
A joint marketing campaign between SkyGreece Airlines and the Croatian Tourist Board is set to start promotion of the new service next month. SkyGreece Airlines, founded by a team of Greek-Canadian entrepreneurs, is headquartered in Athens, and has its main base at Athens International Airport.
SkyGreece Airlines will release its summer timetable shortly.
