Croatia Airlines has introduced flights from the Croatian capital to the St. Petersburg. The first flight from Zagreb landed at Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg on the 9th of June. “Today, St. Petersburg is the only destination served by Croatia Airlines in Russia, and it’s an honour for Pulkovo to be a starting point for the carrier’s development in the Russian market,” commented Evgeniy Ilyin a representative of Pulkovo Airport.
Croatia’s national airline will operate flights between Zagreb and St. Petersburg twice a week, every Thursday and Saturday, and this is the 35th destination inside the Croatia Airlines network. “With direct flights on Thursdays and Sundays, we offer the citizens of St. Petersburg and Russia the fastest and most convenient traffic connection with Croatia. I believe that Croatian citizens will also recognise the value of this route and use this opportunity to discover the beauties of the former capital of the Russian Empire and Russia in general,” added Kresimir Kucko, the CEO of Croatia Airlines.
