Croatia may have lost the World Cup final but it’s still winning when it comes to tourism with Emirates and its low-cost sister airline flydubai partnering up to offer a winter service to the capital of Zagreb.

From December 2, until the end of March 2019 flydubai will operate flights to the city of just over one million people using its Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. After that Emirates will take over the service.

Zagreb is the largest city in Croatia and packed with historical monuments, museums and art galleries. It is located on the southern slopes of Medvednica Mountain along the banks of the Sava River and offers travellers a unique blend of medieval towers, 19th century palaces, open-air markets, and ancient cathedrals.

During the winter months, flights will depart Dubai at 10am and arrive in Zagreb at 1.15pm, with the return flight leaving Zagreb at 2.30pm and returning at 11pm.

Flydubai flights to Zagreb will depart from Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport. Direct flights from Dubai to the destination take about six hours.
