OneWorld alliance member Qatar Airways has increased the number of weekly rotations on the regular line between Doha and Zagreb from Sunday, March 27, reports Croatian Aviation.
With the first day of the summer flight schedule (Sunday, March 27), Qatar Airways is increasing the number of weekly rotations between Zagreb and Doha. Namely, the line has operated 2 to 3 times a week so far, and before the outbreak of the global pandemic, this line operated twice a day throughout the year.
Qatar Airways in Zagreb has not even come close to the number of weekly rotations from the 2019 summer season, and it is obvious that this will not happen this summer either. However, a positive shift is noticeable because as of this Sunday, 5 weekly flights will be available between Doha and Zagreb.
Two flights a week from Zagreb will depart in the morning, and three in the afternoon.
From March 27 to April 30, Qatar Airways is planning a total of 25 return flights between Doha and Zagreb, and A320 aircraft with a capacity of 132 seats (of which 12 are business class seats) have been announced on the route.
In total, in the mentioned period, this airline will offer 6,000 seats in economy and 600 in business class between the two cities.
In addition to Qatar Airways, FlyDubai is also present in Zagreb, which also carries a number of transfer passengers to Asia and Australia, but most transfer passengers opt for Turkish Airlines flights, which offer significantly more than the other two carriers.
It remains to be seen how many weekly flights Qatar Airways will plan to Zagreb in the peak of the summer season, but there is no announcement of introducing the route to Dubrovnik, which was planned for the summer flight schedule in 2020 before the global pandemic.
