The price of the first flight from Osijek to London is promotional and costs 30 euros (226 kuna). The price of the return flight on Monday, June 5, would be 18 euros more expensive. Currently it costs 48.99 euros (369 kuna).

Simon Thomas, UK Ambassador to the Republic of Croatia, attended the reception of the cabin crew and passengers on the flight from London as well as the departure of the return flight from Osijek Airport. He emphasized the already excellent friendly relations between Slavonia and Great Britain. He further stated that now there is one more thing to connect the two.

“I hope it will boost tourism in both directions. The local population goes to London and the British come here to enjoy the famous Slavonian hospitality. In addition, this will promote business ties between our two countries,” said Thomas.
