Next year will be an interesting one for the Croatian airline market due to two Canadian airlines that intend to fight for their piece of pie in Croatia.
After launching its seasonal direct flight between Toronto and Zagreb last summer and carrying around 5,000 passengers, Air Transat decided to expand its operations from one to two flights a week in 2017.
According to the latest information, the leading Canadian leisure airline has also announced an increase of its seasonal flights on the same route in 2018 by further prolongation of its flying season. Therefore, Air Transat will begin its operations two weeks earlier than this year, on the 15th of May 2018.
On the other hand, Air Canada Rouge, the leisure subsidiary of Canada's national airline, will introduce four weekly seasonal flights between Toronto and Zagreb next June.
Air Canada Rouge highlighted that it will offer more services to the country than any other airline in North America. The carrier will be operating flights between Toronto and Zagreb in the period from June to October.
It is interesting to note that both airlines will operate flights to Zagreb on the same day, on Tuesdays.
