Turkish Airlines to serve Zagreb 4 times per week in September, will use A330 tomorrow!
Turkish Airlines resumed flights on Istanbul - Zagreb route in July this year, at that time the airline operated 5 flights per week to the capital of Croatia.
Turkish Airlines canceled one flight in August and its flying now 4 times per week to Zagreb (every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday). The number of weekly flights will be the same in September this year. Monday and Friday flights are running in the evening hours, while Wednesday and Sunday flights are departing from Zagreb during the morning. Unlike Qatar Airways which is continuously canceling flights, Turkish Airlines is operating flights regularly on this route.
The service resumption for the second destination of Turkish Airlines in Croatia, Dubrovnik , is postponed, and we expect that the airline will not resume flights between Istanbul and Dubrovnik during this year.
Interesting, Turkish Airlines, will use its widebody, Airbus A330-200 on Istanbul - Zagreb route this Sunday, August 30th. We are expecting TC-JNC aircraft in Zagreb which is painted in special, retro livery of Turkish Airlines.
TC-JNC is 14 years old aircraft which can carry up to 250 passengers (18 in business and 232 passengers in economy class). Due to the higher ad-hoc demand aircraft needed to use larger aircraft, instead of A320 and A321 aircraft.
