July 20, 2002 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik.
Croatian Aviation reports that at one point, the Turkish national airline had open sales on the Istanbul – Dubrovnik route for August, but now, there are no longer flights on offer.
Turkish Airlines launched a line between Istanbul and Zagreb in early July, and it currently operates in a reduced form, only five times a week.
The second line of this well-known airline in Croatia is the service to Dubrovnik, which operates throughout the year, and in winter with a smaller number of weekly flights. In the summer of 2018, there were as many as 11 weekly flights on the line between Istanbul and Dubrovnik.
The company stopped traffic on this line during the pandemic and has not yet established traffic on it again. Given that the start of traffic has been delayed several times, there is a very high probability that Turkish Airlines will not return to Dubrovnik Airport so soon.
Direct flights on this route are now available for booking from September 1 this year, but, just as was the case with Emirates and the Dubai – Zagreb route, which was completely canceled for this year, there is a very high probability that the same will happen with this line between Dubrovnik and Istanbul.
Thus, we will have to wait and see what will come of the Turkish Airways routes to destinations in Croatia; Dubrovnik and Zagreb.
