February 25, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb and Dubrovnik.

Avio Radar reports that Croatian national carrier and Star Alliance member Croatia Airlines will strengthen the Zagreb-Amsterdam route in 2020. Namely, in addition to morning flights, a second flight on Tuesdays will be introduced in the afternoon. A total of eight flights per week will be offered. The additional flight on Tuesdays will run from April 28 to September 29, 2020. An Airbus A320 and Airbus A319 aircraft will serve this line. 

The additional flight on Tuesdays is being introduced instead of the Dubrovnik-Pula-Amsterdam seasonal route, which will no longer be available. 

Furthermore, Avio Radar reports that German airline Condor has begun selling tickets for a new seasonal route from Germany to Croatia. Namely, the Hanover-Dubrovnik route will be in service once a week, from Saturday, May 30 to October 24, 2020. An Airbus aircraft has been announced for this line. 

This is the second Condor line from Germany to Dubrovnik in addition to the existing line from Frankfurt. Condor announced earlier that it would cancel the Hanover-Zadar route for this year. 

Last year, Eurowings flew from Hanover to Dubrovnik twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays, though that line is no longer on offer. 

Ex Yu Aviation reports that Croatia Airlines has presented a plan for the near future. The national carrier will run three flights per week from Zagreb to Sofia and Podgorica this summer, as TCN already announced

“We are expanding our network of destinations to a total of forty cities in 26 counties. That is a respectable number for a small nation such as Croatia,” said CEO Jasmin Bajić. 

The new routes will not only help ‘point to point’ travelers but will improve loads on services to Western Europe by generating transfer traffic, Ex Yu Aviation said.

Furthermore, Croatia Airlines’ passenger numbers are up 1% thus far in 2020, though that could change with the spread of Coronavirus.

“It [virus] has had less of an impact on Croatia Airlines than other European carriers which are dealing with this major issue. Based on our advanced bookings for March, we do see a slump In demand compared to previous years. However, we are still not considerably affected”.
