Emirates to fly from Dubai to Zagreb daily
Jun 09, 2017: Emirates has inaugurated Boeing 777–300ER flight from Dubai to Zagreb with more than 350 passengers on board. The flight carried commercial passengers from more than 16 countries in Emirates’ network, including Taiwan, Australia, India, the United Arab Emirates, Korea, China, Japan, Singapore and South Africa.
Thierry Antinori, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Emirates, said, “Today is an important milestone for Emirates as we launch full operations into the market and reinforce our commitment to growing trade and tourism flows between Dubai and Croatia. Since establishing our commercial presence in the market in 2003, we have worked with our trade and tourism partners to make this day happen.”
Gari Cappelli, Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia, said, “We believe that this direct daily flight between Dubai and Zagreb will bring many benefits to our country. Namely, it will enable a significant increase of trade relations between countries and will have the especially positive impact on tourism. With Emirates daily flights, Croatia will not only become the centre of Southeast Europe in connection with the Middle East — the most propitious part of the world in terms of industrial growth, but will also be connected with many other countries like China, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan.”
The new daily flight will open up access to more than 80 worldwide destinations in Emirates’ global network for Croatian travellers and vice versa. Travel from Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, or Sydney and Melbourne can all be achieved with one stop at Emirates’ world-class Dubai hub.
The service 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.
As with all Emirates flights, passengers travelling on the Zagreb service will be able to take advantage of the generous Emirates baggage allowance of up to 35kg in Economy Class and 40kg in Business Class, and 50kg in First Class.
