On Monday the 31t of March, SAS introduced flights between Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and Zagreb, Croatia. The line between Stockholm and Zagreb will be operated with departures on Mondays and Friday afternoons. From the 30th of April there will also be departures on Wednesdays.
SAS Sverige has already announced the start of the line between Gothenburg and Split starting on the 7th of June and will continue to operate the line between Stockholm and Split on Tuesdays and Saturdays. With all these direct lines between Sweden and Croatia SAS Sverige will be the largest operator of direct flights from Sweden to Croatia.
"With the new lines we continue our important expansion in Europe. The destinations in Croatia are a result from an increased interest in our flights from Sweden to Croatia, as a destination for holiday but also as a destination for business trips, says Susanne Dahlberg, head of Commercial at SAS Sverige."
"We have been waiting for the line between Stockholm and Zagreb for more than ten years. A direct flight opens up for new travel possibilities such as group- and incentive travels, culture, sports and health travels and not to forget the business travels. With this line and segments we can expect the travel between Sweden and Croatia to increase further, says Dario Matosevic, head of the Croatian Tourist Board in Stockholm".
