Qatar Airways celebrates 10th anniversary of flights to Zagreb

Qatar Airways (QR/QTR), a member of OneWorld Alliance, celebrated the 10th anniversary of its first flight to Zagreb, Croatia on Monday 9 May. The airline’s QR217 flight was met on arrival with a traditional water cannon salute.

The arrival was followed by a small ceremony at the airport where officials from Qatar Airways and Franjo Tuđman Zagreb Airport underlined the importance of the service connecting Doha with the Croatian capital, which Qatar Airways has provided service to almost 800,000 passengers from the beginning of its Zagreb operations.

Customers on the departing QR218 flight were given a special Licitar heart, the iconic item that is symbolic of Zagreb and Croatia.

Qatar Airways recently increased its flying schedule to Zagreb, stepping up to five flights a week using an Airbus A320 (in the picture) aircraft featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class.
