Croatian Aviation reports that Split Airport has published a list of flights confirmed by airlines until May 24 this year. According to the announcements, in the next 20 days, Split will have regular flights to as many as 25 destinations.
Split Airport records an increasing number of re-established routes from weekend to weekend, and until May 24 this year, Split will have regular lines to as many as 25 destinations – 5 domestic and 20 international, which, given the epidemiological situation, passenger restrictions, and low demand, is really great news.
Croatia Airlines will have the largest number of destinations from Split, of which two are domestic and four international. Namely, until that date, Croatia Airlines will operate from Split to Zagreb, Osijek, Frankfurt, Rome, Munich, and Zurich. All routes are already in operation, except the Split – Zurich – Split line, where Croatia Airlines will make its first flight this season on Saturday, May 22.
The second airline in terms of the number of routes in the mentioned period is German Eurowings. The company already operates on two lines (Stuttgart and Düsseldorf), and from May 22, there will be three more in traffic – to Hamburg, Cologne, and Dortmund.
The third carrier is easyJet, which currently has three routes to Split (Basel, Berlin, and Geneva), and from May 22, this well-known low-cost airline will connect Split with London (Luton Airport).
In terms of the number of routes, the Croatian private airline, Trade Air, is in fourth place, connecting Split with Rijeka, Dubrovnik, and Pula, via Pula and Osijek throughout the year. The three mentioned lines will be in traffic twice a week, as is already usual.
In addition to these airlines, it should be noted that the Dutch KLM will continue to connect Split with Amsterdam, LOT with Warsaw, Austrian Airlines with Vienna, Lufthansa with Munich and Frankfurt, and Smartwings with Prague. All the mentioned lines are already in traffic. Vueling will also have another rotation on the route from Barcelona (May 8), and all other flights until the end of June have been canceled. Likely, Vueling will no longer offer direct flights on this route to Split in the summer of 2021.
The two companies will operate their first flights this season to Split. The Latvian national airline, Air Baltic, will introduce a route between Riga and Split on Monday, May 10. Flights are announced twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays.
Four days later, on May 14, the Dutch Transavia will resume traffic on the seasonal line between Paris (Orly Airport) and Split, which will be open twice a week, on Fridays and Sundays, until the last week of May.
This month (as in the entire summer season), Split Airport will be the busiest airport on the coast. From May 4 to 24, over 200 aircraft operations on scheduled flights were announced. In the summer season of 2019, it was the kind of traffic that Split had in one weekend in the peak season, but the good news is that the number of destinations connected to Split is growing already this month. We can expect the introduction of a larger number of lines as early as the beginning of June.
