October 18, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Rijeka, Split, Pula, and Dubrovnik.
Avio Radar reports that German low-cost carrier Eurowings has reduced traffic to Rijeka and Split in the upcoming winter flight schedule, starting October 27. The Rijeka-Dusseldorf line will remain in traffic with two flights a week, on Thursdays and Sundays, only during the first three weeks of the winter flight schedule, i.e., until November 17. The line will begin operating again from May 2, 2020.
Eurowings reduced winter traffic to Split, too. On the routes from Split to Cologne/Bonn and Split to Stuttgart, which flew three times a week on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, the Cologne line will no longer operate on Tuesdays, and Stuttgart will not run on Fridays. The Split-Munich route, which runs two flights a week on Mondays and Fridays, will not operate at all from January 11 to February 9, 2020. Only the Split-Dusseldorf line remains in operation with two flights a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, throughout the winter timetable, or until March 28, 2020.
Avio Radar also reports that Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair has announced a new flight from Germany to Rijeka in their 2020 flight schedule, which will connect Rijeka to Hahn Airport near Frankfurt. The line will be in service starting April 4 with one flight a week, on Saturdays. The flight number is the same as the line that flew from Frankfurt’s main airport to Rijeka this year. Because that option is not on offer for next year, the new line between Hahn Airport and Rijeka has replaced the former Frankfurt line.
Ryanair has also made changes to Pula. Namely, this year, Pula operated flights to both Frankfurt airports twice a week, on the same days, Mondays and Fridays. Just like the Rijeka route, the line from Frankfurt’s main airport is no longer on offer. On the other hand, the Hahn-Pula route will run an additional flight per week next year. Thus, in addition to trips on Mondays and Fridays, a third flight has been introduced on Sundays. This line will begin operations on March 29, 2020.
To end this week of flight news, Avio Radar reports that Latvian national carrier Air Baltic has released its 2020 flight schedule. Three lines from the Latvian capital to Croatia remain in circulation for next year. Namely, the Riga-Split line has been strengthened. In addition to this year’s two flights per week, on Mondays and Fridays, Air Baltic has introduced a third weekly flight on Wednesdays, in the heart of the peak season.
The Riga-Dubrovnik line remains in operation with two flights a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the same as this year. Both lines will begin operating three weeks earlier than this year, i.e., from the beginning of May 2020. The Riga-Rijeka route will run the same as this year, with two flights a week on Wednesdays and Sundays, with operations beginning towards the end of May.
