Starting June 1, 2017 Emirates launched flights to its latest European destination with the introduction of daily flights from Dubai to Zagreb (ZAG), the capital of Croatia. The new southeast European destination will be served by a three-class configured Emirates Boeing 777-300 aircraft, the only wide-body service operating to/from Zagreb.
Among the VIP delegation at Dubai Airport checking in for the inaugural flight to Croatia are: Stephan Schupbach, CEO Dogus Tourism Group; Madhavan Menon, MD Thomas Cook; Thierry Aucoc, Emirates’ SVP Commercial Operations Europe and Russian Federation; Khadija Mohammed Ali Turki, Senior Manager Stakeholder Relations, International Operations, DTCM; Gari Cappelli, Minister of Tourism of Croatia; Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ EVP and CCO; H.E.
