Zagreb Airport reportedly plans to launch an incentive programme aimed at encouraging new airlines to open new routes from the airport (Croatian Aviation, 17-Feb-2021). Airlines can apply up to 30-Jun-2021 by offering routes unserved from Zagreb in 2019 and 2020. Airlines must achieve a certain increase in passenger traffic p/a on the new routes for airlines to be eligible for the incentive. Airlines must also achieve at least 20% of passenger traffic in winter season to mitigate seasonality effects. Carriers transporting more than 75,000 passengers from Zagreb in the first year of introducing the new route will receive an 80% discount on passenger service charges and an additional 3% on top if more than 150,000 passengers are carried.
