Croatia Airlines

Thu Dec 14, 2000 4:59 am

I just read that Croatia Airlines is canceling its Zagreb-Tel Aviv route till March 2001, it seems to me that Croatia Airlines is always canceling routes. Are their planes empty, what I would like to know how is this airline doing are they successful or not? And if they plan to add anymore new destinations?

Thanks

the Tel Aviv route is suspended till March and it will be restarted then - obviously it isn't profitable to operate this route in winter

I heard that they might start service to Dubai, kinf of scheduled charter, but this is unconfirmed

they will get competion soon - Air Adriatic, although I doubt they will compete on the same routes - propably just for transfer pax to non-european destinations

I don't know exact load factors for thta route - but it propably was full during summer - tourism is the reason (Dubrovnik-Tel Aviv leg)

Croatia airlines carried more than million pax this year - total nuimber will propably be 1.1-1.2 million

Do you know if Croatia Airlines has any future plans such as if they are gonna order anymore planes, or any new routes they might serve?

Thanks
