June 15, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik and Zagreb.
Avio Radar reports that Greek carrier Aegean Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance association, will maintain their summer route between Dubrovnik and Athens for the winter, thus giving Dubrovnik a new line this winter season.
From October 28, 2019, the Aegean route will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturday, until January 4, 2020. Afterward, there will be a two-month winter break, and from March 3, 2020, traffic will continue with two flights per week.
At the same time, the Greek airline will increase winter traffic on the Zagreb-Athens route. In addition to last year’s two flights a week, on Mondays and Wednesday, an additional third flight will be introduced on Thursdays at selected times during the winter period.
Just like the Dubrovnik route, the Zagreb route will have a break in traffic this winter, but for a shorter amount of time – from January 16 to February 23, 2020.
Both lines will operate using the Bombardier Q400 aircraft from the Greek Olympic Air fleet.
In other news, Avio Radar also reports that the Austrian low-cost carrier Anisec Luftfahrt, flying under the marketing name LEVEL, has significantly reduced traffic on many of its European routes. This significant reduction in traffic has also influenced the only route in Croatia, between Vienna and Dubrovnik, which was scheduled for four flights per week.
Now, the line will operate just one flight per week this summer, on Saturdays. Traffic will end on this route on September 7, 2019, with no further sales. An Airbus A321 aircraft will fly on this route.
