The Irish low-cost carrier will hold a press conference on Tuesday, March 30, at 11:30 at which the Ryanair President of the Management Board and the Zagreb International Airport President of the Management Board will address the media.
After Zagreb Airport has been in deficit for years in terms of low-cost carriers and routes, Ryanair is finally coming to Zagreb!
According to Croatian Aviation, there will be 12 Ryanair flights to Zagreb from eight countries. Thus, the Croatian metropolis will be connected with Paris, Brussels, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Memmingen, Milan, Rome, Podgorica, Oslo, Gothenburg, and London.
Already this autumn, Ryanair will perform as many as 36 weekly flights from Zagreb Airport to the following destinations:
Brussels Charleroi, from June 2, 3 times a week,
Dortmund, from September 3, 2 times a week,
Frankfurt-Hahn, from September 3, 3 times a week,
Gothenburg, from September 3, 3 times a week,
Karlsruhe, from September 2, 2 times a week,
London, from September 1, daily,
Memmingen, from September 3, 2 times a week,
Milan, from July 1, 4 times a week,
Paris, from September 2, 2 times a week,
Podgorica, from September 4, 2 times a week,
Rome, from September 3, 3 times a week,
Torp Sandefjord, from September 1, 2 times a week.
The company has more than 430 B737-800 aircraft in the fleet, with a capacity of 189 seats. The average age of Ryanair aircraft is only 8 years.
Ryanair has been operating in Croatia since 2006. By June 2019, the company had transported 4 million passengers to and from Croatia.
Unofficial reports on Monday claimed that Ryanair would open a base in Zagreb in October and launch a series of lines.
The arrival of Ryanair in Zagreb has been rumored for months, and the airline’s representatives have been to Zagreb several times to agree on the details of a new project – a project that will finally give Zagreb a number of routes and enable affordable travel to and from the Croatian capital.
In February, we wrote about the Zagreb Airport incentive program, which decided to attract new carriers to Zagreb. Given the conditions, it was clear that the airport was targeting a low-cost carrier and the announcement of the press conference confirmed that they had been successful in doing so!
An hour after the press conference in Zagreb, Ryanair will hold a conference in Zadar as well.
