Flights to Croatia: ANA Returns to Dubrovnik, Aer Lingus Releases 2020 Flight Schedule

August 4, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik, Split and Pula. 

All Nippon Airways (ANA), known as Japan’s largest airline, comes back to Dubrovnik this summer with charter services from Tokyo and Osaka, reports Ex Yu Aviation.

The charters, which are operated by Japan’s largest tour operator, will run from Dubrovnik to Tokyo on September 7 and Osaka on September 21. Flights will depart at 20.30 and 20.55. ANA will operate this service using a Boeing 787-9 aircraft with a capacity of up to 395 passengers. 

Recall, Croatia and Japan are looking to launch non-stop flights in the future. 

“Discussions between the aeronautical authorities of Japan and the Republic of Croatia are continuing. A tentative framework has been reached until the conclusion of an Air Services Agreement between the two countries. Considering the possibility and forecasts, there is sufficient air traffic demand for scheduled air services between Japan and the Republic of Croatia in the future,” the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said after the first round of negotiations were last in November 2018. 

In other flight news, Avio Radar reports that Irish national carrier Aer Lingus has announced its 2020 flight schedule, which neither boosts nor decreases operations to Croatia. Even though their low-cost competition Ryanair launched two new routes this year from Dublin to Dubrovnik and Split, bringing four new flights a week on both routes, Aer Lingus has maintained the same number of flights. 

Namely, Aer Lingus will operate the same schedule as this year, with two flights on the Dubrovnik-Cork line, daily on the Dubrovnik-Dublin line and four times a week on the Pula-Dublin route. The Dubrovnik-Dublin route will begin operating two weeks earlier than this year, on April 3, 2020. 

The Irish airline will maintain four flights a week on the Dublin-Split route, though the flight days will change. Thus, since both airlines operated this route four times a week on the same days this year (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays), Aer Lingus will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays in 2020 instead. Ryanair’s 2020 summer flight schedule is still unknown. 

Tickets are currently on sale until June 2020, so the end of the summer flight schedule is presently unknown. The Airbus A320 will fly on all lines.
