January 12, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb, Dubrovnik, and Split.
Ex Yu Aviation reports that Air France announced that it is boosting its service between Paris and Zagreb, adding a second daily flight for this summer. Thus, Air France will operate from Paris to Zagreb in the morning and evening every day this summer out of Charles de Gaulle Airport. The new service will begin in May.
Recall, Croatia Airlines already operates one daily service from Zagreb to Paris.
In other flight news, we should see significant growth between Croatia and Greece this summer. Namely, Ex Yu Aviation reports that this is due to more destinations, higher capacity and three airlines operating between the two countries. This news comes after Aegean Airlines submitted a nonbinding bid to acquire Croatia Airlines. Thus, Aegean will increase capacity on all of its routes to Croatia this summer.
Aegean will run three services per week between Athens and Zagreb, using the Airbus A319 twice per week and the A320 once per week. Aegean will exclusively use the A320 on its five flights to Dubrovnik, while the A319 will service Split four times per week. Aegean has also expanded its codeshare partnership with Air Serbia to include Dubrovnik, Pula, Rijeka, Split, Zadar and Zagreb.
Ex Yu Aviation adds that Croatia Airlines will operate from Zagreb to Athens via Dubrovnik six times per week. This route will be serviced by Dash 8s and Air Nostrum Bombardier CRJ1000 jets.
Spanish low-cost carrier Volotea will operate three flights per week between Athens and Dubrovnik this summer, while a new service between Athens and Split will run twice per week starting April 19, and a new route from Mykonos to Dubrovnik from May 30. As reported earlier, this is the first time Croatia will be linked with a Greek city other than Athens.
“These are very attractive additions for a very dynamic market in which we believe there is still good room for growth,” said Carlos Munoz, CEO and Founder of Volotea.
Over thirty-three thousand Greek tourists visited Croatia in 2018.
