The inaugural Aegean Airlines flight from Athens to Zagreb landed yesterday in the Croatian capital and marked the opening of this new route. Aegean Airlines, the largest Greek airline, will operate this link three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays during the summer.
The first flight from Athens was welcomed in the Zagreb International Airport by its CEO, Jacques Feron, who said that the line to Athens will contribute to the development of tourist and business connections between Greece and Croatia, as well as the continued growth in passengers in the Zagreb Airport.
Aegeain Airlines’ Airport Services Manager, Sergios Diplarakos, said the new line meant the strengthening of the network to Zagreb, a popular vacation and business destination. He added he was looking forward to all the Croats who will choose Greece as the destination of their travels.
“We have been waiting a long time for this line, and there is a lot that the peoples of Croatia and Greece can learn from one another, considering that both countries are recognised historical and gastronomical tourist destinations,” said the Ambassador of the Hellenic Republic, Stavros Tsiepas.
