Emirates in Zagreb from September
In its latest statement, Emirates further postponed the service resumption on the Dubai - Zagreb route.
The company first postponed the route to July, then to August, and the latest news is September. Emirates is currently offering tickets on the Dubai - Zagreb route from September 1st this year, four times a week; on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Boeing 777-300ER aircraft have been announced to operate on this route, depending on the registration of the aircraft, it can carry between 354 and 442 passengers!
Considering that Emirates turned the Zagreb route into a seasonal one earlier, and that the partner FlyDubai operates between Dubai and Zagreb in the winter flight schedule, the chance that Emirates will return to Zagreb this summer are small. According to the plan, the already mentioned FlyDubai should take over this route from the end of October.
Qatar Airways, Emirates competitor (along with Etihad Airways), is still offering tickets between Zagreb and Doha from July this year, but changes are also possible in the next two weeks.
The largest aircraft (in terms of technical specifications and the number of seats in the cabin) in Zagreb was from the Emirates, while Air Canada Rouge and Korean Air flew with long-range aircraft to the Croatian capital. Unfortunately, both airlines canceled their flights from Toronto and Soul for this summer season. However, it is still possible to buy a ticket on Air Transat's flights between Toronto and Zagreb, 3 times a week from the beginning of July.
