Croatia Airlines Reviews
The government-owned national airline of Croatia traces its roots back to August 20, 1989 as “Zagal” (Zagreb Airlines) with a single Cessna 402. But initially they only provided cargo services for UPS. Though after the democratic elections in 1990, the airline was rebranded to “Croatia Airlines”. A McDonnell Douglas MD-82 was added to the fleet in 1991, when Croatia Airlines had an agreement with Adria Airways. However, due to the Croatian War of Independence, the airline was forced to suspend operations.
In 1992, when the airline had finally commenced operations, they acquired three Boeing 737 from Lufthansa. By then Croatia Airlines had became the national airline of the newly-independent country and made its first inaugural flight from Zagreb to Frankfurt.
Now, the airline is still fully owned by the government of Croatia while being managed by their president and CEO, Krešimir Kučko. Carrying the company slogan “Više od udobnog leta” which means “More than a comfortable flight,” Croatia Airlines had been a member of Star Alliance since November 2004. They operate flights to 27 destinations (for the list, click here) with 12 aircraft.

Their frequent flyer program, Miles&More, lets travellers earn miles while flying with them. These miles can be redeemed in due time for several travel related discounts, upgrades and other type of airline accommodation.
Official Website and Mobile App
The overall impact and functionality of their page is easy to navigate. Everything is simply organized and understandable. The official page lets customers search and book flights online, check flight status and timetable. Apart from that, travellers can also book for a hotel reservation and car rental services. The page doesn’t seem useful but believe me it’s loaded with information such as news, policies, services and newsletter services.

Manage bookings, obtain all relevant information they need to prepare for their flight and even contact details of the airline’s offices.
