New winter timetable has scheduled departures from Zagreb to Vienna 5 times per day (except three on Saturdays)

Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri and Sun have departures from Zagreb at 8.30 of both, Croatia Airlines 319 and Austrian Arrows CRj flying to Vienna. I know they fit perfectly into Vienna hub connecting waves, but still I find a bit unusual for a small airport like Zagreb to have five times per day flights to Vienna, two of them at the same time.

(plus daily Charles de Gaulle 320 departs Zagreb at 8.30 as well and on Tue, Wed, Thu, Sat Heathrow 319 also at 8.30 sharp).

I remember when I used to fly from Zagreb in the morning and there were couple of flights scheduled within one hour, we usually had delay.

How long does the flight take? Certainly not more than half a hour, doesn't it ?

I was at ZAG last year. The airport reminded be a bit of large runway connected to a 30 year old, sort of former industrially used hall. I didn't expected the capital airport of an upcoming middlle-sized European state to be in such a state. Runway and apron seemed to be quite OK or even new. But the "terminal" was terrible ...

Yes.

Well the story of the Zagreb Airport airport is a long one, however due to various political and other reasons, airport badly needed extra capacity in the eighties, however only few adjustments were made (like new arrival hall).

And then came the war, and the orientation of country towards Western Europe in the nineties, what left other airports in the region to overtake the role of a hub for South Eastern Europe (like Ljubljana at the beginning and later Vienna and Prague).

Like I said, various circustamnces have led airport to remain without proper terminal that a capital city airport deserves.

Currently talks are being held about constructing a new terminal, in about five years, supposedly Vienna and Munich airports are interested in investing, but one will have to wait and see the outcome.

At the moment Belgrade Airport is being reconstructed, yet it is not posing serious competition either to Zagreb or any other hub in the region, since political circumstances in Serbia aren't favorable, and JAT is so healthy to purse an expansion and organize an effective hub system.

There you go....

Hi

I found this one as well

http://slonews.sta.si/index.php?id=1609&s=63

I am amazed that LJUBLJANA will get airbridges before Zagreb. I doubt though they'll manage to get a status of true hub for ex Yu republics. They are losing traffic on routes from Croatia (particurarly Split - no more scheduled service and only a few years ago they served Split daily from Lju with excellent connections).

Only option for Ljubljana is expanding into Serbia and Montenegro - they already serve Podgorica, but I guess Belgrade and eventually Nis would be a good option - once market liberalizes in SCG.

Monday afternoon service plus

-2345-7 evening flights aboard Airbus 32S equipment with overnight stay in Skopje (2 frequencies up in comparison to summer 2005)

This means Skopje will have on days 1-3456- early morning flight to Zagreb with excellent connections to Western Europe.

That's simply great!

Quoting Flycro (Reply 11):

To be honest, no I didn't read the first part of your post, I scanned it.

Is there really any need to be so bloody sarcastic and rude?

In answer to your question, how does anyone else on a.net know whether an OU service MAN-ZAG would work? A stupid and almost rhetorical question.

If you really want to know, do some research on O&D figures between the two, and maybe find out the numbers of Croatian immigrants in NW England, for example.
