From the 1st of June, Emirates will start flying to Zagreb, Croatia.
Presently, the only middle eastern carrier that flies into Zagreb is Qatar Airways with 10 weekly A320 flights to Doha. Fly Dubai also used to fly into Zagreb twice a week with the B737 but the flights are cancelled due to poor loads.
It is a risk for Emirates to start flying to Zagreb as Fly Dubai failed to continue with 2 weekly B737 flights. Well Emirates will fly a daily B777-300 configured with 12 first class seats, 42 seats in business class, and another 310 economy class seats.
With the addition of Zagreb, Emirates will now fly to two east european cities which are Budapest and Zagreb. Kiev, Ukraine was also once served by Emirates but that was cancelled after a short period of time because of the problems in Ukraine.
