Croatian Aviation reports that easyJet, one of the most important airlines present in Croatian airports, plans to operate regular international traffic on only three routes to Croatia from the beginning of May. All three lines are to and from Split Airport.
Although the company offered numerous international routes to four Croatian airports at the beginning of this year – Pula, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik, the announced flights were not realized.
From April 10 to 24, the airline performed three return flights on the Geneva – Dubrovnik – Geneva line, but there are no flights on this route for May. easyJet plans to resume traffic between Geneva and Dubrovnik only in June.
As for Split Airport, easyJet resumed traffic on the Geneva – Split – Geneva line on April 3, and it will continue to operate in May, once a week, every Saturday.
The Basel – Split – Basel line operated twice a week in April, on Thursdays and Saturdays, while in May it will operate once a week, also on Saturdays.
From May 1, this airline will resume traffic on another route to Split. Namely, from the mentioned date, a line from Berlin will be introduced, which will also have one flight a week – on Saturdays.
All other Croatian airports to which easyJet normally operates in the summer flight schedule in the first half of May will not have regular arrivals by this well-known British airline.
More precisely, out of a total of 42 international routes to the four mentioned airports, there will be only 3 lines in traffic from May 1. A320 aircraft have been announced on the routes, which have a capacity of 180 passengers in this airline’s fleet, which means that easyJet will have only 1800 seats available to and from Split Airport next month.
And while easyJet is still working on the summer flight schedule, Ryanair has its schedule for Croatia for the upcoming season. However, the company opened sales on its international routes in the 2021/2022 winter flight schedule. Zagreb is, as expected, the Croatian destination to which Ryanair will operate next winter.
The company has not changed the number of weekly flights on all 12 routes in the winter flight schedule and it looks the same as the schedule announced in September.
Ryanair should perform most flights next winter from Zagreb to London (daily), and fewer weekly operations to Bergamo (4), Brussels (3), Rome (3), Hahn (3), Gothenburg (3), Karlsruhe (3), Dortmund (2), Memmingen (2), Oslo (2), Paris (2) and Podgorica (2).
It remains to be seen whether the company will make certain modifications and introduce or cancel certain lines for next winter, for which, of course, there is enough time.
