Aviation history, Zagreb Airlines became Croatia Airlines
This domain name used to be the home of several subdomain names of various websites, blogs and aviation in Croatia; all of which were based on different topics and industries.
One of the major subdomain; which was on the domain was www.ctn.tel.hr. ctn was a subdomain regarding the history of Croatia Airlines. Over the years, national airline of Croatia has seen massive revolution; as well as advancement from its initial start back in 1989 when it was first established. It was usually referred to as Zagal; which was an acronym for Zagreb Airlines; and used just a single Cessna 402 C aircraft and aviation; to today’s use of Boeings and other sophisticated; as well as modernized air carriers. The airline was established in Zagreb; hence its name.
Anyways, more about the history…
The Zagreb airport has too expanded from what used to be an airstrip back then to an international airport. Their first aviation plane was used to carry cargo then.
The Zagreb airport has an older terminal shown here:
A new aviation terminal is under construction:
Moreover, the name of the airline changed from Zagal to Croatia Airlines in 1990 after the country underwent its first democratic elections. This saw the signing in of various agreements with other major airways; so that domestic traffic could start flying. Their first agreement with Adria Airways was pivotal to transport people. This was because they were able to acquire a lease to use a smaller commercial aircraft; which enabled the airlines to commence their first Split-Zagreb commercial flight.
This was followed by the purchase of 3 Boeing 737 aircraft in 1992; which saw Croatia Airlines and Aviation become a member of the International Association of Air Transport (IATA) and thus increase its presence in international air. Since then the airways have expanded and better aircraft purchased as they increase their international presence.
Zagreb International Airport
Nonetheless, this is the main airport in Croatia and is located just 15 km from Zagreb city. Other international airports in the country includes; Rijeka International Airport, Split International Airport, Zadar International Airport as well as Dubrovnik International Airports. There are also other smaller ports in the country; which handle smaller aircraft at Pula, Osijek and Brac.
Today the aviation has several popular destinations in Europe; which includes; London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris, Copenhagen, Zurich, Barcelona, Nice, Lyon, Munich, Vienna, Venice, Rome, Pula, Rijeka, Skopje, Athens, Dubrovnik and also other internal flight; such as Split.
Increasing attraction areas in Croatia; such as the amazing Dalmatian coastline, the rich & diverse culture of the region; as well as its beautiful landscapes has also seen many tourist visiting the country.
Nonetheless, there are several major air carriers; which fly into Croatia; which includes; SAS (Scandinavian Airlines), Austrian Airlines, Jat Airways, Air France, Iberia Airways, Swiss International Airlines, Turkish Airlines, TAP Air, Norwegian Airline Shuttle, Easyjet, Aeroflot, Alitalia, Delta Airlines, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Czech Airlines and many more. I presume that in future; there will be an additional of air carriers flying to Croatia.
Split Airport information
Be that as it may, there was also a split-airport.tel.hr; which was a subdomain; which had all the information pertaining g to Split Airport (lotnisko split); or sometimes referred to as Airport Split; (zračna luka split).
However, all information regarding to booking flights from this international airport to other destinations outside the country or locally; such as travelling to Zagreb was found on this website. One could easily check about departures, flight available, make booking etc. The new website for Split airport is here.
The Split Airport; shown below; is in a beautiful location. Split is city that surrounds a really nice natural bay on the Adriatic Sea.
Below, are the recent posts; which are I’ll admit, a completely random collection of topics, often from Canada.
The Croatian Telephone Directory
Another major subdomain was www.imenik.tel.hr. This subdomain was the telephone directory for Croatian (croation telefonski); or as the name of the subdomain suggests it was a phonebook, (telefonski imenik) and also a portal; which list businesses; both local and international and their respective phone addresses. They later moved to Telefonski imenik.
Veterinarian regulatory body, the hrvatska veterinarska komora.
However, another important subdomain was www.hvk.tel.hr. This subdomain used to possess vital information about safe standards and regulation of the Croatian veterinary chamber (hrvatska veterinarska komora). This is the body; which creates the necessary regulations, policy and laws; which safeguard proper veterinary practices in the country. Just like doctors for humans, the veterinarian profession is governed by a code of ethics as well as enforces the licensing standards. They are now found at hvk.hr
