June 22, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik and Zadar.
Croatian Aviation reports that Turkish Airlines will fly again on the Istanbul-Zagreb route from July 1.
During the summer, Turkish Airlines operated to Zagreb twice a day, thus offering a large number of connections to other destinations in the world to all passengers from Croatia, of course, in the opposite direction, allowing many tourists to come to Zagreb (especially those from Asia).
Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, Turkish had suspended traffic on all routes, and in the last month, has gradually reintroduced domestic lines within Turkey, and now certain international destinations.
Although before the pandemic, when the airline operated to Zagreb twice a day, the company will now re-launch the line in a reduced form. Namely, the Istanbul – Zagreb – Istanbul line will be run 5 times a week from July 1, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
On Wednesdays and Sundays, the line will be maintained in the morning, with the A320 aircraft, while on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, the aircraft will operate on this line in the evening with the B737-800 aircraft.
The A320 aircraft in the fleet of this carrier has the capacity for 153 passengers, while aircraft type B737-800 has a capacity of 162 passengers.
Turkish Airlines operates throughout the year on the Istanbul – Dubrovnik route, but currently, this route is not yet announced and there is no specific date for the start of operations of this well-known airline to Dubrovnik Airport.
Tickets are on sale and can be purchased on the airline’s website.
Furthermore, Avio Radar reports that over the weekend, LuxAir renewed all three of its routes to Croatia. The first flight landed in Dubrovnik on Saturday, June 20. The first flight carried 54 passengers, while 5 flew back to Luxembourg. This line will be in service on Saturdays, and from July 8 on Wednesdays.
