Air Canada Rouge and Air Transat to boost operations in Croatia

BY EX YU AVIATION

Canadian leisure carriers Air Canada Rouge and Air Transat will increase their operations to Croatia next year following a successful summer season. Air Canada Rouge, which launched four weekly seasonal flights from Toronto to Zagreb this June will resume operations on May 27, 2019 and add an additional weekly rotation between the two cities for a total of five per week.

The airline will also maintain services until the end of the summer season in late October, whereas this year flights were concluded at the start of the month. On the other hand, Air Transat will increase capacity on its seasonal two weekly Toronto – Zagreb service from the 345-seat Airbus A330-200 to the 375-seat A330-300 aircraft.

As previously reported, Air Transat will also introduce a new seasonal one weekly service between Toronto and Split next summer with its A330-200 aircraft. Flights will launch on June 20 and run until September 12. As a result, Split will become the third Croatian airport to boast transatlantic and long-haul flights over the summer, following the lead of Zagreb and Dubrovnik.

“We’ve seen great interest in Croatia since we started flying there in 2016. That’s why Air Transat is proud to be meeting this demand even better by upping its offer to three direct flights from Toronto, including two to Zagreb. And thanks to our connecting flights from Montreal and Vancouver, more travellers can now discover Croatia’s second largest city”, the leisure carrier’s Chief Operating Officer, Annick Guerard, said.

Air Transat noted that with the development of longer-range narrow-body aircraft it could add more flights to Croatia in the future.
