Flights to Croatia: Flybe and Nordica Cancel Operations, Level Reduces Service

Daniela Rogulj

December 18, 2018 – After the announcements of EasyJet and Ryanair expanding their operations in Croatia, other airlines have decided to scale back. A look at flights to Croatia in 2019.

Namely, AvioRadar has reported that Estonian national airline Nordica will no longer fly the Rijeka-Tallinn route for the 2019 summer. The airline will, however, maintain the Split-Tallinn route, which flies three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. The Sunday flights will operate from April 14 to October 20, 2019, while the Tuesday and Thursday flights will serve passengers during the peak season – from June 25 to August 27, 2019. 

Nordica will fly using the Canadair CRJ-900, operated by Polish carrier LOT. 

Furthermore, AvioRadar reports that British low-cost carrier Flybe no longer maintains any routes to Croatia. Both the Dubrovnik-London and Zadar-London lines from Southend Airport have stopped traffic after just two seasons. The carrier operated two flights between Dubrovnik and London last season, and one flight between Zadar and London. 

Flybe has canceled many flights to European destinations from Southend for next summer thanks to fierce competition. Namely, EasyJet has boosted its Southend line in the summer and picked up new routes to Dubrovnik and Pula. 

This is not the first time Flybe has withdrawn operations from Croatia. Recall, several years ago, the airline flew from Birmingham and Southhampton to Dubrovnik and Split, and from Exeter to Dubrovnik, mostly with one flight per week. Flybe also operated charter lines from Norwich to Dubrovnik and Split, and from Humberside to Dubrovnik. All of these lines, however, were abolished, with no new airlines replacing them. 

Last but not least, AvioRadar reports that the new low-cost carrier Anisec Luftfahrt, flying under the marketing name LEVEL, has reduced traffic on its only line to Croatia. The airline only began operating to Croatia in July with a flight between Vienna and Dubrovnik, though they did not fly to Dubrovnik until August 12, 2018. The airline operated four flights per week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. 

In their summer 2019 flight announcement, LEVEL will drop one of their weekly flights and fly only on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays from Vienna to the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. LEVEL will operate from June 18 to September 8, 2019, stopping traffic a month and a half earlier than this year. 

LEVEL will fly to Dubrovnik on the Airbus A321 aircraft.
