July 21, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar, Rijeka, Osijek, and Pula.
Croatian Aviation reports that well-known low-cost airline Norwegian Air, which operated on a number of routes to destinations in Croatia last summer, is announcing four international routes for August this year.
During the summer, Norwegian flew from Croatia to numerous destinations in Europe, mainly to destinations in Scandinavia, but also from Spain and Great Britain. Almost all lines have been canceled, and the company will operate on only four lines to Croatia in August:
Split – Oslo, twice a week in August, every Wednesday and Saturday,
Split – Copenhagen, once a week, from July 25, every Saturday,
Split – Stockholm, once a week, from July 25, every Saturday,
Dubrovnik – Oslo, once a week through August, every Saturday.
These are significantly fewer flights and weekly departures on existing ones, but the company was in financial trouble even before the outbreak of the pandemic, so it has radically reduced its flight schedule due to the current crisis.
Croatian Aviation also reports that from August, Eurowings will operate to 6 airports in Croatia with 32 weeks of flights from destinations in Germany.
Eurowings established traffic to Croatia in May, and since then, it has been increasing the number of weekly flights and routes to Croatian airports every month. Compared to this month, when Eurowings operates 23 weekly flights to Croatia, from August, there will be nine more for a total of 32.
Most lines, as usual, will be from six German destinations to Split Airport:
Hamburg – Split, instead of the previous two, will run three flights a week (Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays),
Stuttgart – Split, instead of the previous two, will run four flights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays),
Dusseldorf – Split, instead of the previous three, will run five flights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, Saturdays twice a day),
Cologne – Split, instead of the previous five, will run four flights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays),
Hanover – Split line is reintroduced, once a week, every Saturday, from August 1,
Berlin – Split line is reintroduced, once a week, every Saturday, from 1 August.
As for Zagreb Airport, it will continue to be connected to two destinations, Cologne and Stuttgart, but the number of weekly flights on both routes will increase:
Cologne – Zagreb, instead of the previous three, will run four flights a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays),
Stuttgart – Zagreb, instead of the previous two, will run four flights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays).
The lines Dusseldorf – Pula, Hamburg – Rijeka and Cologne – Zadar will continue to operate as in July, with one flight per week. Two already existing lines to Rijeka and Zadar will work more often than in July:
Dusseldorf – Rijeka, instead of the current one, will operate twice a week (Saturdays and Sundays),
Stuttgart – Zadar, instead of the previous two, will run three times a week (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays).
The line to Osijek is being re-introduced, and it will also be the only regular international line from this airport. The Stuttgart – Osijek line will operate once a week, every Sunday, from August 2 on the A319 aircraft.
Eurowings has not announced traffic to Dubrovnik, making it the only airport in Croatia that hasn’t re-established regular traffic.
