Croatian Aviation reports that Croatia Airlines will resume traffic on the regular route between Dublin and Zagreb from the end of May. At the beginning of June, Ryanair will reconnect Dublin with Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik.

The Croatian national airline operated for a short time, around the Easter holidays, on a regular route between Dublin and Zagreb Airport, but traffic was soon suspended. The company has decided to operate again on this line from the end of May with two flights a week, every Thursday and Sunday.

The Croatia Airlines route between Zagreb and Dublin has been announced from Thursday, May 27, and flights are planned for the coming summer months. A319 aircraft with a capacity of 144 passengers will operate on the route.

From mid-June, Croatia Airlines has regular charter flights between Split and Dublin, once a week, on Wednesdays, until the beginning of September.

From the beginning of June, Irish Ryanair will resume traffic on its three seasonal lines from Dublin to Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik. In the summer season of 2020, the line to Zadar from the capital of Ireland was not in traffic.

The Dublin – Zadar Airport route has been announced from June 2, twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, and the airline plans to keep the same number of weekly operations throughout the summer flight schedule.

The Dublin – Split Airport line has also been announced from June 2, twice a week, on the same days as the line to Zadar. In early July, the company plans to increase the number of weekly operations by introducing an additional flight on Fridays.

The Dublin – Dubrovnik Airport line will be in operation from June 4. Two flights a week have been announced for June, on Mondays and Fridays, while an additional flight on Wednesdays is expected from the beginning of July.

The third airline operating between Ireland and Croatia is AerLingus. The company previously announced the resumption of traffic to Pula, Split, and Dubrovnik from the beginning of June. Still, currently, all flights have been postponed until the second half of June.
