Flights to Croatia: LOT Considering Budapest-Zagreb Route, S7 Boosts Pula

July 29, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb and Pula airports. 

Ex Yu Aviation reports that LOT Polish Airlines could soon operate a route between Budapest and Zagreb, as well as to Belgrade, Prague and Sofia, as the airline works on building its hub in the capital of Hungary. The new routes are expected to launch this September, though more information will be known after a press conference this Wednesday. 

With this expansion, LOT would become one of the main hub airlines at the Budapest Airport. These new routes would be in addition to the already scheduled Brussels and Bucharest lines.

Furthermore, this new line would resume the Budapest-Zagreb route for the first time in five years. With this addition, the airline hopes to target business passengers traveling between European capitals and passengers with onward connections, like the routes from Budapest to New York and Chicago. 

Recall, Qatar Airways once operated between Doha and Zagreb via Budapest, while Hungary’s former national carrier Malev once ran 18 flights per week between the two cities until it folded in 2012. 

LOT currently works between Zagreb and Warsaw two times a day. 

In other news, Avio Radar reports that S7 Airlines, which is a member of the global airline association OneWorld, announced that it would boost the Moscow-Domodedovo-Pula line for the 2020 summer. The airline plans for six flights per week, on every day apart from Thursday. The new flights will be added on Sundays, and this year’s Thursday flight will change to a new flight on Tuesdays next year. 

The Boeing 737-800 aircraft have been announced for next year instead of the Airbus A320 aircraft.
