May 27, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb and Zadar.

On May 25, Croatia Airlines launched regular flights from Zagreb to Amsterdam, which is currently the only EU destination the national carrier is flying to, along with Frankfurt, which was maintained during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Flight OU450 to Amsterdam from Zagreb departs every day at 8:20, while the departure from Amsterdam to Zagreb OU451 is scheduled for 11:35.

Avio Radar announced that from June 1, Croatia Airlines would also start flying to Copenhagen with five flights per week, after which it will operate daily (from June 8).

Flight OU480 to Copenhagen from Zagreb departs every day at 8:10, while the departure from Copenhagen to Zagreb OU481 is scheduled for 11:20. 

The A319/320 and DASH 8-Q400 aircraft will be exchanged on this route, depending on the demand. 

With the planned opening of borders, announced for June 15, we should expect more direct flights to other destinations. The airline will also resume nonstop flights from Split to Frankfurt on May 29.

Ex Yu Aviation reports that SAS Scandinavian Airlines has canceled its new seasonal service from Copenhagen to Zadar because of the coronavirus pandemic. The new flight was meant to begin on June 30 and was meant to run twice a week. 

Recall, we recently reported that Ukrainian airline Windrose announced a new planned start of operations on the Kyiv-Zagreb route.

The line has not existed so far, so this summer season was supposed to be the first in which there would be a direct connection between the capitals of Ukraine and Croatia, and it was originally supposed to start operating in May.

Due to the pandemic and the crisis it caused, the company initially postponed the start of operations to the end of May, then to June, but after Monday’s changes, the company decided to further postpone the planned start of operations to July 21.

Windrose kept three weeks of flights on this route in the reservation system, with a small capacity aircraft (48 seats), ERJ-145.

Additional delays are also likely, as well as the complete cancellation of the line for this summer season and the start of traffic only in the summer flight schedule in 2021.
