After direct flights were launched from Philadelphia to Dubrovnik with American Airlines this year comes news that another transatlantic service could be in the pipeline.
The Canadian airline, Air Transat, have reportedly shown interest in expanding their flight connections between Canada and Croatia and flights to Dubrovnik are being mentioned. According to a report in the specialised website EX-YU Aviation Air Transat have already approached Dubrovnik Airport about the possibility of flights.
“Croatia remains a key destination for Transat in view of the interest shown by Canadian travellers in the summer and its potential for tourism development”, commented the airline to EX-YU Aviation. Adding that “We are continuously looking at all opportunities, including Croatia. Like all airlines, there are a number of considerations involved when we are selecting a destination, including customer demand, airport infrastructure and competition from other carriers”.
Since 2016 Air Transat have been flying between Zagreb and Canada during the summer months and these flights have been showing positive occupancy levels.
