As i read in AERO magazine, in March 2001, new airline will take off in Croatia! Head quarters would be in Zagreb and operations would undertake scheduled flights within Europe. Fleet would include two DORNIERs 328JET!
Unbeliveable! A year ago, I read in local newspapers that a new Croatia airline would be founded, by pilots and other interested partys. Name was also Air Adriatic, but fleet back them was supposed to be MD80series, only for charter operations. However, I never heard anything about AIR ADRIATIC since then, until most recently in AERO. This is simply to good to be true. I wonder where would they fly? Hm, perhaps to Copenhagen, which once had almost twice daily service from Zagreb (SAS and CROATIA), but now only connecting Lufthansa via Frankfurt!
CROATIA has during the last two years discontinued a lot of its services in order to gain profit. Most recently they stopped flying to Moscow, but increased profitable Madrid service.
Other destionations previously flown (for years) but now not included: Stuttgart, Hamburg, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Tirana, Brussels, Milan
Hopefully, there will be enough space for Air Adriatic to expand and re-introduce some of these services. Or perhaps they start to compete with CROATIA directly? Who knows!
Is there anybody who knows more about Air Adriatic and its foundation??? What about future plans this airline has???
Thanks a lot for any info
