Transavia and Volotea plan Zagreb operations


Low cost carriers Transavia and Volotea are interested in launching services to Zagreb and expanding their presence in Croatia, reports Ex-Yu Aviation.

The news comes as Zagreb Airport looks to attract more airline operators following the opening of its new passenger terminal, scheduled for this March.

The Air France – KLM no frills subsidiary Transavia France has told the Croatian Ministry for Tourism it plans to add flights from France to Zagreb and Pula in 2018. It will also consider the possibility of introducing services to Rijeka next year as well. The low cost carrier maintains seasonal services to Dubrovnik and Split.

New services from Marseille and Strasbourg

Meanwhile, representatives from the Spanish no frills airline Volotea have announced plans to add flights from France to Zagreb, Pula and Zadar, with the aim to carry 220.000 travellers to Croatia by 2020. While the new services would likely commence next year, the airline gave no firm timeframe.

Volotea currently operates seasonal flights to Split and Dubrovnik and will launch new services from Marseille and Strasbourg to the Croatian coast this summer season.
