This year the largest airline in Germany and the second largest in Europe, the air carrier Lufthansa is celebrating 50 years of doing business in Croatia.
According to Bernhard Wodl, the general manager of the Lufthansa Group for Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia, and Serbia, the German air carrier operates around 50 flights a week to Croatia.
''We are very pleased with the results that we have achieved in Croatia, our cooperation is very good and we fly to all larger airports in the country such as Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Pula, and Zadar'', commented Wodl. He also added that they increased the number of flights for 2017 commenting that the new airports in Zagreb and Dubrovnik would contribute greatly to better services for passengers especially tourists who fly with Lufthansa from and to Croatia.
Wodl also reminded that the cooperation between Lufthansa and Croatia started half a century ago when Boeing 727 Europa Jet aircraft operated the first Lufthansa's flight from Frankfurt to Zagreb on the 25th of August 1967.
Ever since that day Lufthansa has been connecting Croatia via its hubs of Frankfurt and Munich with more than 200 destinations across the globe, whilst through its European hubs with more than 308 destinations in 103 countries worldwide.
