August the 23rd, 2023 – Croatia Airlines has been busy trying to implement its so-called ”post-covid” strategy, a part of that is the reintroduction of the formerly popular Dubrovnik-Frankfurt route this winter.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatia Airlines and Dubrovnik Airport have agreed on the return of the Dubrovnik-Frankfurt route to the winter flight schedule from October the 29th, 2023 until March the 30th, 2024, it was announced at a recently held press conference at Dubrovnik Airport.
Three times weekly
An Airbus 319 aircraft, with a total capacity of 144 seats, will fly on the Dubrovnik-Frankfurt route three times a week, but with a break from mid-January to the end of February 2024, Index writes.
The President of the Management Board of Croatia Airlines, Jasmin Bajić, expressed his satisfaction with the agreement reached and the return of a formerly very popular international route, in which the tourist boards of the City of Dubrovnik and of the wider Dubrovnik-Neretva County are also included.
An increase over the winter period
“They made it possible for us to return this international route between Dubrovnik and that German city together. It’s all part of Croatia Airlines’ post-covid strategy where we’re increasing the amount of international connections we have throughout the winter period. That’s equal to a twelve percent increase in flights and an increase of more than thirteen percent in terms of seats. We will have international flights going from almost all Croatian airports. This just goes to further prove that Croatia Airlines is an important part of the Croatian tourist and transport infrastructure”, said Bajić.
