Croatia Airlines, the Croatian national air carrier and member of Star Alliance, takes great pride in the fact that this year is marking the company’s 30th anniversary.
The story of Croatia Airlines began in 1989, when Zagreb Airlines was founded. After changing its name to Croatia Airlines in 1990, the company became the national airline for the transport of passengers, goods and mail.
Today Croatia Airlines is a medium sized European airline, whose flight safety, professional staff and quality of service have been recognised by passengers.
During this summer tourist season, Croatia Airlines flew to 30 international and eight Croatian destinations. The capital of Croatia, Zagreb was connected with 24 European destinations in 22 countries via direct flights.
To date, Croatia Airlines has operated about 610,000 flights and has flown 40,000,000 passengers.
It is a member of the most important aviation associations, such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Star Alliance, the largest airline association in the world.
As the flag carrier, Croatia Airlines contributes significantly to the development of Croatian tourism considering that, annually, one third of all tourists arriving in Croatia by aircraft fly with Croatia Airlines. Its aircraft, with the elegant application of the company logo and national colours is for many passengers their very first encounter with Croatia and a powerful and recognisable promoter of the country.
The utmost attention is paid to ensuring passenger satisfaction and confidence, which is why the company has been continuously working on improving and developing the quality of its service – both in the air and on land.
HTI wishes Croatia Airlines many more successful years to come!
