Flights to Croatia: Getjet Announces Charter from Lithuania to Split

Daniela Rogulj

June 21, 2019 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Split and Zagreb airports. 

Avio Radar reports that the Lithuanian airline Getjet Airlines will operate its first charter line to Croatia. This will be a post-season charter that will connect Lithuania and Split from Vilnius, once a week on Sundays this September. The Airbus A320 will run on this service. 

Getjet was established back in 2016 with its main operating base in Vilnius. Until last autumn, Getjet was based on the wet-lease of aircraft with crew to other airlines – and they also flew on short-term leases for Croatia Airlines. 

After the collapse of the Lithuanian carrier Small Planet Airlines, they acquired part of their aircraft and began trading on their own charter lines according to the needs of travel agencies in the Baltics. 

The Getjet fleet currently consists of 15 aircraft – three Boeing 737-300, five Boeing 737-400, six Airbus A320 and one Airbus A330-300 aircraft. Two Airbus A320 aircraft also fly on the TUI Netherlands Airlines Amsterdam-Pula route.

In other news, Avio Radar reports that German carrier Lufthansa, a member of the global Star Alliance airline association, would cease operations with the Spanish regional carrier Air Nostrum on Friday, June 21. Lufthansa currently has two Air Nostrum aircraft Canadair CJ-1000 registered with the label EC-LJT and EC-MNR. Both planes flew on lease to Croatia Airlines for the last two summer seasons. 

Ceasing this operation also applies to the line to Croatia, as these aircraft flew from April this year on both daily Lufthansa flights between Zagreb and Frankfurt. Now, from Saturday, June 22, Lufthansa will fly to Zagreb with the Airbus A319. There will also be minor changes in the departure and arrival times on select flights.
