September 16, 2020 – The latest news for flights to Croatia as Air France announces to Zagreb and Dubrovnik this October, and AirBaltic launches postseason routes to Split and Dubrovnik. 

Croatian Aviation reports that AirBaltic has announced a line to Split and Dubrovnik in the postseason.

As we wrote earlier, the company made its last flight from Riga to Split in August (more precisely, on August 21) and canceled all flights after that date for this season.

However, AirBaltic announced that from this week, it would offer flights to as many as 37 destinations in Europe, including Dubrovnik and Split. Judging by the new flight schedule, AirBaltic will operate on the Riga – Split line from this Friday, September 18, once a week until the end of the month. Direct flights on this line are announced even in October, also on Fridays, until October 23, when this line should stop operating for this year.

The same goes for the Riga – Dubrovnik line. The company made its last flight on August 20 and canceled all flights after that date. But on September 14, the connection between the two airports was re-established. Flights in the post-season should operate once a week, every Monday, until October 19 this year.

The Riga – Rijeka line is not in traffic, while the Vilnius – Dubrovnik line has been operating regularly all this time. The last flight on this line has been announced for September 25. 

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Air France has made operational changes to its flight schedule by the end of October this year. This well-known airline will continue to operate to Dubrovnik and Zagreb next month.

In July, Air France launched its international routes from Paris (Charles de Gaulle Airport) to Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik. Since then, the routes have operated regularly without significant cancellations of individual departures.

The traffic on the lines to Croatia increased at the end of July, and the company had 34 weekly flights until the end of August. Namely, on the last day of August, the Paris – Split route stopped operating, on which Air France ran as many as 6 times a week.

Even before the outbreak of the pandemic, the company announced the introduction of a second flight a day to Zagreb (a total of 14 flights a week), but the plan was suspended after the lockdown. The company then planned to fly twice a day to Zagreb four times a week, but only a few flights were made and after that, they were withdrawn from sale.

At the beginning of September, Air France reduced its traffic to Dubrovnik (from 4 to 3 weeks of flight), while traffic to Zagreb remained the same, with one flight a day. According to current announcements, this flight schedule will be in effect until the end of October.

Namely, the Paris – Dubrovnik line is on sale 3 times a week through October, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday (until October 24 this year). The Paris – Zagreb route should operate daily through October, but it remains to be seen whether Air France will reduce the number of weekly flights on this route in the winter flight schedule, which will be in effect from the end of next month.
