Croatia Continus to Seek Airline Partner
The Croatian government has announced that it aims to find a new strategic partner for Croatia Airlines.
This is the 3rd time in the past 5 years that the small central European state has tried to find a way of divesting itself of a controlling interest in the national carrier. The previous two attempts, in 2014 and 2016, failed to find any suitable suitors.
A new National Reform Plan foresees a radical restructuring of the country’s transport sector, including privatization of its railway system and a new partner for Croatia Airlines. The government has for some time been trying to sell off state enterprises to reduce the level of public debt.
Croatia Airlines has been modestly profitable in recent years. It operates a small fleet that the company website lists as comprising two Airbus A320s, four A319s and six Bombardier Q400 turboprops.
The carrier’s business is seasonal, with an influx of tourists to Adriatic resorts such as Dubrovnik over the summer season, together with a quieter winter period. Like most European national carriers, it has come under sustained pressure from LCCs in recent years.

Croatia Airlines possibly in need of 70 new aircrafts
State-controlled flag carrier, Croatia Airlines, is in high demand over the summer months, due to the increase in air travellers. A huge amount of this surge is due to passengers embarking in their summer leisure travels. A whopping 25% of Croatia's GDP is tied up in the tourism business. This is true of Croatia Airlines, as the summer months are where the airline makes most of its profit. The difference in the amount of aircraft Croatia Airlines need in the summer months compared to the winter is around 64 according to the carrier's network and revenue manager, who believes 70 airlines are needed in the summer, as opposed to a mere 6 in the winter. The airline services 40 destinations in 24 European countries in the summer.

Croatia Airlines, Asiana Airlines sign code share agreement
State-controlled flag carrier Croatia Airlines said it has signed a code share agreement with South Korea's Asiana Airlines, which paves the way for sharing Seoul-bound flights via Frankfurt, London and Paris.
Passengers flying Croatia Airlines from Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split will now have access to Seoul from transit spots in London, Paris and Frankfurt, and vice versa, the Croatian company said in a statement.
"By concluding this agreement and by building a joint product, both companies expect even better positioning in a highly competitive passenger transport market between Croatia and South Korea," Croatia Airlines noted.
Asiana Airlines is an airline based in Seoul, the capital of South Korea.
From Seoul, it flies to 63 destinations around the world, including cities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Croatia Airlines already has code share agreements with United Airlines, Air Canada, Singapore Airlines, Air India, and most of the European airlines in the Star Alliance network.

Croatia Airlines have announced positive operating results in first nine months of 2016
At the same time, Krešimir Kučko, the CEO of Croatia Airlines, announced on Monday the possibility of opening new routes in the next year. He added that Croatia Airlines had achieved positive results this year and had made significant investments, for example, in major inspections of engines, in which it invested eight million dollars, and had also opened four new lines which can hardly be profitable in their first year of operations. As for the winter timetable, he pointed out that in November, which is the first month of the new timetable, the company had recorded results better than expected. However, he added that the extreme seasonality would for some time be one of the features of the airline business in Croatia. He did not rule out the possibility of leasing Croatia Airlines’ aircraft and crews during the winter season, in order to at least partially compensate for the losses incurred in that period. However, this is affected by major aircraft inspections, which are typically performed during the winter, which reduces the availability of the aircraft for such leases.
Croatia Airlines announced it was set to add new flights to its network next summer including to Scandinavia
Croatia Airlines has already completed studies for flights to Moscow and Dublin. This summer, Croatia Airlines introduced new seasonal flights from Zagreb to Prague, Milan, Lisbon and St Petersburg. The airline will also operate two charter flights from Osijek to Dublin over the upcoming Christmas and New Year holiday period to test interest in the route. In March 2017, Croatia Airlines announced it will wet-lease a pair of CRJ-1000s to cover its summer season capacity demands. 100-seater Bombardier twinjets are wet-leased from Spanish ACMI/charter specialist Air Nostrum.
Aside from its routine network offering of flights from Zagreb to thirty-five destinations across Western, Central, Eastern, Southern Europe, and the Middle East, Croatia Airlines will also venture into the Scandinavian market this summer serving Helsinki Vantaa, Stockholm Arlanda, and Oslo. In March 2017, Croatia Airlines announced it will lease back the five London Heathrow take-off and landing slot pairs it sold to Delta Air Lines in January this year for USD19.5 million. The two airlines recently concluded a Slot Use Agreement wherein Croatia Airlines will continue to use the slots for the duration of the current summer season. Thereafter, with the onset of the IATA Northern Winter Season 2017/18 on October 29, they will revert to Delta's use.
Croatia Airlines announced in March 2017 that it had introduced its service to Oslo as part of the company's expansion to Scandinavian routes (Stockholm, Helskini, Oslo.) The Oslo route will get an additional service, so there will be three flights a week instead of the initially planned two (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday).
Croatia Airlines has been prevented from selling landing/take off slots at London Heathrow. Transport Minister Oleg Butković and State Property Minister Goran Marić, on behalf of the state which is the owner of Croatia Airlines, have banned until further notice the company to sell its landing and take-off slots at London Heathrow Airport.
