June 17, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb, Osijek and Split.

AvioRadar reports that Korean Air, a member of the global airline carrier SkyTeam, will launch newer and larger planes on their service to Zagreb this autumn. Namely, from September 17 to October 28, 2019, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will operate on the service between Zagreb and Seoul Incheon, instead of the smaller Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The Korean Air Airbus A330-200 aircraft has a capacity of 218 across three classes, while the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner has 271 seats. 

Thus, 53 more seats will be available on this service, which runs three times per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. 

In other news, AvioRadar reports that on Friday, June 14, 2019, Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air landed their last flight at Osijek Airport. The Airbus A320 landed on time, five minutes before 8 pm, from Basel/Mulhouse. The final departure left at 8:25. 

This service operated two to three flights per week, on Mondays and Fridays and in selected periods on Wednesdays. The Airbus A320 flew on this route.

Osijek airport expects this line to return, though there are currently no tickets to purchase until the end of the summer schedule or for the winter schedule. 

The most exciting news of last week revealed that Split Airport’s new 450 million kuna terminal and additional facilities would open in approximately two weeks. 

Namely, Ex Yu Aviation reported that Split Airport’s new passenger terminal is set to open on schedule, and in approximately two weeks, though the exact date is still unknown. Technical checks are currently underway at the site, after which the Croatian Ministry for Construction and Spatial Planning will issue an operating permit. 

Recall, the new terminal will spread across 50,000 square meters, which is a significant improvement compared to the current 14,000. The will be 30 check-in counters, 6 exits, 5 luggage carousels, a new sorting facility, parking for 900 cars, a station for 49 buses, and a 120-meter-long air-conditioned pedestrian bridge that connects it all. There will also be a lounge for business class passengers, an observation deck, and more restaurants. You can see the progress of the airport back in March here
