d On November 15, 2021, a direct air line is established between Osijek and Munich. The Croatia Airlines plane will take off every Monday and Friday at 9.10 am from Munich to be in Osijek at 10.45 am, and at 11.20 am it will depart from the runway of Osijek Airport towards Munich, where arrival is scheduled at 1 pm.

The initiative for direct international flights on the route Osijek - Munich was launched by Osijek-Baranja County, the City of Osijek, the Tourist Board of OBŽ and Osijek Airport, and yesterday (September 23, 2021) Croatia Airlines and Osijek Airport in Osijek concluded an agreement on business cooperation and insurance of direct international flights on that route. The agreement was signed by the President of the Management Board of Croatia Airlines Jasmin Bajić and the Director of Osijek Airport Ivan Kos.

The capacity of the aircraft is 76 seats

Regular international flights on the Osijek - Munich route are introduced for the first time in the history of Croatia Airlines, and in anticipation of being extended for the whole year - they have so far agreed for the period from November 15, 2021 to January 14, 2022. It will operate the Dash 8-Q400 aircraft, which has a capacity of 76 seats.

After the signing of the agreement at Osijek Airport, the President of the Management Board of Croatia Airlines Jasmin Bajić, the Director of Osijek Airport Ivan Kos, the Prefect of Osijek - Baranja County Ivan Anušić and the Mayor of Osijek Ivan Radić spoke at the press conference.

"This is the first time that Croatia Airlines introduces an international flight from Osijek Airport and thus enables the inhabitants of Slavonia to connect with the whole world because it is possible to fly to all continents via Munich. I believe that direct flights Osijek-Munich will contribute to the development of tourist and economic potentials of Osijek-Baranja County and the city of Osijek, and at the same time strengthen the business of Osijek Airport, making it an even more important transport point. " - said the President of the Management Board of Croatia Airlines Jasmin Bajić and expressed hope that the project will become a year-round.

Munich is a major hub that further connects flights to other European destinations

The director of Osijek Airport, Ivan Kos, expressed satisfaction that Osijek Airport is re-establishing international flights after a year. "I believe that establishing cooperation with Croatia Airlines is the first step in a series of flights that we will have in the future. We are already thinking about other destinations, and this destination is the beginning for us. We chose Munich because it is a large center that further connects flights to other European destinations such as Amsterdam, Paris and London, so our citizens will have connections with the whole of Europe. " Said Kos.

"The joint work and activities of all local self-government units, including the City of Osijek with Osijek-Baranja County, is visible through the project of revitalization of Osijek Airport. The Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butković, will be visiting us soon, with whom we will announce a major project for the renovation of the passenger terminal building, which will lead to a better functioning of air traffic. As for the Osijek-Munich line, introduced for the first time in history, our goal is to keep it throughout the year, but also to introduce new international lines. ” - said the prefect Ivan Anušić and added:

"A series of capital investments currently carried out by Osijek-Baranja County, such as the construction of the Regional Distribution Center for Fruits and Vegetables and the Economic Center, will provide great opportunities for cooperation and connections with Osijek Airport, which is a great advantage of Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County. In addition to the economic potential, there are certainly tourist opportunities that we have been developing intensively in the last four years, and the latest figures on the number of arrivals and overnight stays in our county show that we are on the right track. " - pointed out the prefect Anušić.

The city of Osijek is located in the position of a regional traffic center

The Mayor of Osijek, Ivan Radić, emphasized that the signing of the contract between Croatia Airlines and Osijek Airport and the opening of a new international route means that the city of Osijek is finally located in the position of a regional transport center. "As for the economic impact of the Airport, I emphasize that we have recently filled the entire first zone of the Eco-Industrial Zone Nemetin, so we have found investors for all 25 plots for which the most important is the transport connection of Osijek with the rest of Croatia and Europe. In this sense, it is important that the construction of Corridor 5C progresses as planned, and I am convinced that the new international line Osijek - Munich, thanks to which we are only 100 minutes away from the German city, will draw the coordinates of Osijek on the map of Europe and the world. ” - Radić concluded.
