After Dubrovnik, Brussels Airlines now announces flights to a second Croatian destination: Zagreb.
On 24 October Brussels Airlines already announced six new European destinations for the 2015 summer season: Dubrovnik, Calvi, Lourdes, Olbia, Billund and St. Petersburg.
Croatia officially joined the European Union on 1 July 2013, which makes it one of the youngest member states and makes it indispensable to have good flight connections with the European capital. Starting 20 September 2015, Brussels Airlines will operate six flights per week between Brussels and Zagreb, in the afternoon.
Zagreb is the 18th European capital that the airline connects to Brussels, and the third capital in Eastern Europe, next to Warsaw and Riga. Unlike Dubrovnik, Zagreb is a destination for business tourism, economic events and commercial trade fairs.
This capital celebrated its 900th birthday in 1994 and is home to one of Europe’s oldest universities, the University of Zagreb, founded in the 17th century. The city is known for its cultural wealth with more than 20 theatres, three concert halls, 60 museums and art galleries.
The flight schedule allows convenient connections with a large amount of other destinations within the Brussels Airlines network.
