Flights to Croatia: Austrian Airlines Reduces Traffic to Croatia

September 22, 2020 – The latest news for flights to Croatia as Austrian Airlines reduces traffic to Croatia in October.

Austrian national airline Austrian Airlines has announced its flight schedule for October. The company will operate to three Croatian airports until mid-October; Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik.

As confirmed to Croatian Aviation by this airline, due to travel restrictions, Austria Airlines still decided to reduce the number of weekly flights to Croatia and end its traffic to Split earlier. As a reminder, Austrian launched the Vienna-Zadar line this summer, which was in operation until mid-September. Despite the pandemic, the company is satisfied with the results of this line and plans to continue operating on the same in the summer season of 2021.

The Vienna-Split route operated 6 times a week during the summer flight schedule, every day except Tuesday. Although Austrian planned to operate on this route throughout October, due to restrictions and low demand, the last flight will be earlier than planned – on October 10. From October 1 to October 10, the Vienna-Split route will be open three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in the afternoon.

The Vienna-Dubrovnik line also operated six times a week this summer season. It will be in traffic until the very end of the summer flight schedule – October 23.

From October 2 to 5, four flights a week have been announced, on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays,

From October 11 to 18, two flights a week have been announced, on Fridays and Sundays,

From October 19 to 23, two flights a week were announced, Mondays and Sundays.

Austrian is also announcing changes on the Vienna-Zagreb route. Although this line was supposed to operate 6 times a week in September, the company often canceled certain departures due to weak demand. For this reason, there has been a reduction in the number of weekly flights on the route, so Austrian will connect Vienna and Zagreb four times a week in October, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Flights were announced in the afternoon.

In the summer flight schedule of the previous years, Austrian flew to Split and Dubrovnik every day, often using its largest aircraft from the Airbus family (A321). At the same time, on the Vienna-Zagreb route, it operated up to 3 times a day. The only route that should be in traffic in this year’s winter flight schedule is Vienna-Zagreb, but the number of weekly flights is still uncertain. The airline’s plan for this route in the winter months should be announced in mid-October.
