Finnish national airline Finnair (Oneworld alliance member) announced its 2022 summer schedule, and Zagreb is on the list of new destinations, reports Croatian Aviation.
Finnair will operate regularly between Helsinki and Zagreb next summer, and the Helsinki – Zagreb – Helsinki line will be introduced on May 1, 2022. Flights will run three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. A319 aircraft with a capacity of 144 seats have been announced on the route, meaning Finnair will offer more than 22,000 seats on the Helsinki-Zagreb route from May to October next year.
Before the pandemic, Croatia Airlines operated in the summer between Helsinki and Zagreb, but the line was not in operation in 2021 and 2020 due to reduced demand.
Finnair has operated to Dubrovnik and Split in the summer flight schedule for many years, and earlier this airline had Pula on its destination map. Finnair’s arrival in the Croatian capital is great news for all those who normally travel between the two cities, as well as for those who will continue their journey to destinations in Asia with this airline.
Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that German leisure airline Condor announced two new routes to Croatia.
Condor Airlines announced a series of new routes from Düsseldorf, which is the focus this winter. For now, several new routes have been announced for next year’s summer flight schedule, including two to Croatian airports.
Condor plans to operate to three Croatian airports next summer. Split is already a traditional destination and will have three routes next year – from Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich.
Condor will introduce two new routes – between Düsseldorf and Rijeka, twice a week, and one flight a week between Düsseldorf and Dubrovnik.
Croatian Aviation adds that A320 aircraft will operate to Rijeka and Dubrovnik, while Condor will use A320, A321, and B757 aircraft to Split, just like in the 2021 summer season.
