Air Croatia was a Croatian virtual airline.[1] It offered flights to European destinations from its base at Zagreb International Airport but was legally registered in London.[2]

History[edit]

Originally the airline was founded in 2013[3] and planned to start operations by summer 2014, but this was rescheduled to 18 December 2014 and subsequently postponed to 1 March 2015[3] and then again until 2 April 2015, when the operations finally commenced. The airline originally announced it would operate an Embraer 170 but instead started to utilize a ATR 42-300 operated by Denim Air.[3]

Since November 2014 Air Croatia is in partnership with Hahn Air for ticket distribution via their Global Distribution System using the code H1.[4] However, the airline continued to report poor sales for its flights to Prague, Rome and Budapest.[5] Subsequently, the route from Zagreb to Budapest has been suspended after just one return flight operated.[6]

As of 23 April 2015, all remaining routes were suspended due to a financial dispute between the airline and their contracted credit card payment agency leading to a lack of funding to fulfil their leasing payments to Denim Air.[7]
