Emirates’ commitment to Croatia
The new route in Croatia is an important one for Emirates as it strengthens the airline’s European footprint and tap into a new part of the continent – the south eastern part with Zagreb centrally location at the crossroads of Central Europe, the Mediterranean and the Balkans. “With Emirates’ direct flights, Croatia will not only become the centre of South East Europe in connection with the Middle East but will also connect other countries like India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan,” says Essa Sulaiman Ahmad, VP India & Nepal, Emirates.
The service to Zagreb, Croatia, is operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER with a three-class cabin configuration, offering eight private suites in First Class, featuring automated sliding doors for privacy, personal mini-bar and fully inclined seats, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy. “Zagreb is an ideal destination for tourism, leisure and Business. A very walkable city, both the upper and lower parts of the town offer visitors an insight into the past, with the 19th century style of architecture prominent across the capital. Tourists can also enjoy the parks, or visit one of the many theatres, museums and art galleries dotted around the city,” adds Ahmad. This route has proven to be really popular for Indian passengers whether it was leisure, business, honeymoon or MICE travel.
