Zagreb Airport is close to securing flights to the United States, which, if launched, would mark the resumption of services between the two countries after 22 years. A European carrier is currently in talks with Zagreb Airport over possible seasonal services to New York, which would run during the 2017 summer season.
However, a final agreement is yet to be reached. The General Manager of Zagreb Airport, Jacques Feron, previously said it would be “fantastic” for the Croatian capital to offer direct flights to the United States. “In the US, New York would be an excellent destination, although it is true that this metropolis is well connected to all major European airports”, Mr Feron said. His words echoed that of Sani Sener, the CEO and founder of TAV Airports Holding and TAV Construction, which forms part of the consortium running Zagreb Airport. He recently noted that the most desired route from the Croatian capital would be New York.
