Direct flight to Zagreb from Dublin Airport with Croatia Airlines

Passengers flying from Dublin Airport now have opportunity to fly direct to popular Croatia. Croatia Airlines, Croatian flag carrier and Star Alliance member, is to introduce a direct route to the Croatian capital Zagreb during the summer season 2018, two times a week starting in May.

Croatia has a lot more to offer than the well known summer destinations on the Adriatic coast. The capital of Zagreb is an exciting city with a lot to offer its visitors - good shopping, cafes, culture and arts, music, architecture and gastronomy – and it is the perfect city to explore. As Croatian Airline´s hub, Zagreb also offers great connectivity to the popular summer destinations of Split, Dubrovnik, Pula and Zadar.

-We are delighted to welcome Croatia Airlines to Dublin Airport and to Ireland, said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison. Zagreb is vibrant city filled with culture and history and I have no doubt it will be a popular destination. We will work closely with Croatia Airlines to help promote the new route.

-We are glad that for the first time in Croatia Airlines’ history we have established Dublin – Zagreb route. We see the introduction of this flight as a contribution to the development of tourism in both countries and we are looking forward to see many Irish citizens in the Croatian capital, as well as in other parts of Croatia, said Jasmin Bajić, President & CEO of Croatia Airlines.

The direct service between Dublin and Zagreb will be operated two times a week – on Thursdays and Sundays from 3rd May to 28th October 2018.
