"We are introducing this service because of the firm belief that Croatia has strong economic potential, especially in the tourism sector. Croatia has a solid Diaspora in the Middle East and Australia, while this service will link Zagreb with forty cities in the Middle East, Asia and Africa", commented Executive Vice President of Emirates, Thierry Antinori.
Emirates has introduced new operations between the Croatian capital and Dubai which will start on the 1st of June this year. The flights between Dubai and Zagreb will be operated daily starting from the 1st of June 2017 by a 364-seat Boeing 777-300 aircraft, which includes 12 first class, 42 business and 310 economy class seats.
And according to a report on the specialised website EX-YU Aviation the bookings for this new line are already very positive. The airline forecasts an average cabin load factor of between 70% and 80% on its 364-seat Boeing 777-300 aircraft.
