October 5, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik.
Avio Radar reports that Norwegian airline Norwegian Air Shuttle has announced they will reduce traffic to Dubrovnik in their summer flight schedule next year. The airline revealed they’ll be closing their base in Madrid, which directly effects the Madrid-Dubrovnik route.
Namely, the Madrid-Dubrovnik route will cease to operate after the current summer flight schedule. Norwegian currently operates two flights per week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The service will end on October 26, 2019.
Furthermore, although it has not been officially announced that Norwegian will close its base in Barcelona as well, the Barcelona-Dubrovnik route is also no longer on offer for the 2020 summer flight schedule. According to the planned flight schedule, this service has already been completed for this year. By canceling these two lines, Norwegian will no longer offer any routes between Spain and Croatia. The Boeing 737-800 aircraft was used for both lines.
Recall, TCN recently reported that Korean Air would not run the Seoul-Zagreb service this winter, though services will resume on April 1, 2020. The service will run between the two capitals only until November 29, 2019. Tickets sales have thus been discontinued.
LOT announced they’re coming to Rijeka with a new direct seasonal service from Warsaw. The route will run from March 29 to October 18, once a week, on Sundays. The flight lands in Rijeka at 15:30 and departs for Warsaw at 16:20. An Embraer E195 aircraft, which has the capacity for 118 passengers, will service this line.
Finally, SAS Scandinavian Airlines, a Star Alliance member, added a new Croatian destination to its 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, the airline will service Zadar in addition to the existing routes to Dubrovnik, Pula, and Split. The new Copenhagen-Zadar route will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, from June 30 to August 8, 2020. A Canadair CRJ-900 will be used for this line.
