Emirates celebrated its debut service from Dubai International to Zagreb’s Franjo Tuđman Airport on June 01 with 350 passengers aboard Boeing 777-300ER.

Welcomed with a water cannon salute and with traditional Croatian folk dancers, the flight’s delegation, consisting of high-ranking officials, attended a reception at the hub’s new terminal, including a press conference, gift exchange and cake cutting ceremony, followed by a guided static tour of the Emirate’s aircraft, highlighting the innovative onboard amenities.

Commending the partners for the efforts in preparation of the event, Thierry Antinori, chief commercial officer, Emirates, said, ”Today is an important milestone for Emirates as we launch full operations into the market and reinforce our commitment to growing trade and tourism flows between Dubai and Croatia.”
