A new low-cost airline called Air Croatia has emeeged, which will connect various Croatian airports with Sweden, initially Gothenburg. A nice route map from our colleagues over at Aerocroatia above.
More detail about the airline is provided by Exyuaviation:
A new airline named Air Croatia will launch flights from Sweden to Zagreb and the Croatian coast this summer season. The airline will lease an aircraft from an undisclosed Dutch carrier in time to inaugurate flights to Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Pula and Zagreb in June. Air Croatia is yet to publish its timetable but anticipates operating flights out of Stockholm and Gothenburg. Currently, the airline plans to run two weekly flights from Gothenburg to Split and one flight per week to Dubrovnik, Pula and Zagreb. From Stockholm the airline will operate flights to both Zadar and Split. Tickets are yet to be put up for sale.
Air Croatia will operate on a low cost basis. Food, coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase on board. Passengers will be able to check-in twenty kilos of luggage free of charge. In essence, Air Croatia is a Swedish tour operator specialising in holiday packages to Croatia which will lease and brand its own aircraft with the possibility for the public to purchase individual tickets as well. Similarly, several years ago, tour operator Air Kosova leased aircraft and crew from Belle Air and Hamburg International for flights out of Pristina. If all goes to plan, Air Croatia will be the only airline offering direct flights from Zagreb to Stockholm and Gothenburg.
