Canadian Air Transat expects increase in demand for Zagreb

More good news for Croatia’s international connectivity as the Canadian leisure airline boosts services and anticipates higher demand regarding the Croatian capital.

During 2016, Air Transat carried approximately 5000 passengers on 17 rotations between Zagreb and Toronto and this year the leading leisure airline is said to be expecting to record even higher numbers during its seasonal service. According to a report on the 18th of February 2017 from EX-YU Aviation News, a high quality source for all things aeronautical, the popular Montreal based carrier has given its operations a significant push and will increase its service from once to twice per week, as well as run flights for longer in the currently accepted season. 

This year, operations to Zagreb from Air Transat will commence as of the 30th of May and run every Monday until the 16th of October, with a second weekly service on Wednesdays operating from the 18th of June until the 3rd of September. 

Gilles Ringwald, the Commercial Vice President of Air Transat noted that the company has an extensive European network which allows passengers to combine their trip to Zagreb with other cities. He also stated that there is a mix of both leisure travellers and diaspora using the service.

Unfortunately, and much like the vast majority of other airlines excluding companies like Croatia Airlines and British Airways who connect Croatia with the rest of Europe throughout the year, lack of demand during the winter months means this boosted service from Air Transat will remain a purely seasonal one for the foreseeable future. None the less, it is one worth taking advantage of.
