Croatia and Japan are moving ever closer to introducing direct flights with negotiations over an Air Service Agreement ongoing.
"Discussions between the aeronautical authorities of Japan and the Republic of Croatia are continuing. A tentative framework has been reached until the conclusion of an Air Services Agreement between the two countries. Considering the possibility and forecasts, there is sufficient air traffic demand for scheduled air services between Japan and the Republic of Croatia in the future,” commented the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the specialised website EX-YU Aviation.
An Air Service Agreement is the first step in introducing direct flights between two countries and the negotiations between Croatia and Japan started in November last year.
At this present time All Nippon Airways connects Dubrovnik and Japan in the summer months, there is however no direct connections with the Croatian capital, Zagreb.
