Does Croatia Airlines Fly To Manchester, UK?

Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:34 pm

Does Croatia Airlines fly to MAN? It says on the Wikipedia website (I know this isn't always right!) that it flies to Zagreb all year round and Pula seasonally. Is this true?

Are they scheduled or charters?

Any info appreciated.

Hi!!

Apparently, they do NOT have direct scheduled services to MAN. They of course offer many seasonal routes from the adriatic coast to the UK. The rest is probably, code share flights to LHR with BD and onward with OU.

BTW they are a GREAT niche airline with awesome service!!

Nope...As far as I can remember they have never operated from MAN to ZAG...I flew on them back when they first started and had to route LHR-ZAG-PUY to visit the Croatian side of my family.

ZAG only operates from LHR and LGW.

With regards to PUY they possibly have done from a charter point of view but that is not happening at all for summer 2012..They seem to have forgotten PUY to the UK and only operate PUY-AMS on a Tuesday. Otherwise it is all via ZAG. You can however fly RJK-LHR on a Wednesday like I did this year!

Jet2 have launched a MAN-PUY for sumemr 2012 just FYI (in case you were not aware)

thanks

Thanks guys.

I wonder if there is much demand from MAN - ZAG (for example) to warrent a scheduled service..?

I'd say yes! there are no year-around flights from anywhere except London to the former Yugoslavia any more. Such a shame. I think wizzair could do Belgrade-Manchester twice weekly. Also Easyjet could for sure fill a twice weekly Manchester - Zagreb flight. Also i wish there were year round flights to the Croatian coast from the UK. British Airways fly to Dubrovnik all year but Dubrovnik is only useful for Dubrovnik and for Montenegro. A flight here and there to Split and Pula could work i'm sure although the prices airlines could charge might not make it hugely profitable. Just a dream.

Totally agree!

Trying to get to Pula outside of London is so difficult! From BRS (my local airport) it is three flights! We are going in June next year and there are at least 8 of us flying and right now the only option is the MAN to PUY flight with jet2....

If FR can make a RJK flight work then there must be a call for more flights to Istria in general.

We used to fly to VCE and drive by EZY cancelled those flights from BRS as well!

Adria used to fly to LJU from MAN but I think this has been cancelled?

Through the summer they were flying to Pula once or twice a week from MAN. Can't say I've seen them for a while though! Nothing been mentioned about a year round route either...
