July 25, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, and Zadar.

Croatian AviationCroatian Aviation reports that Austrian Airlines has announced its flight schedule for August this year. It contains several operational changes on the lines to destinations in Croatia.

The company will continue to operate to four Croatian airports in August; Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Zagreb. While the existing number of weekly flights to Dubrovnik and Split will be maintained, there will be some changes on the routes from Vienna to Zadar and Zagreb.

The Vienna – Dubrovnik line will continue to operate as many as 6 times a week (every day except Tuesday), with the 320 aircraft.

The Vienna – Split route will also operate 6 times a week (every day except Tuesday), with the aircraft of the same capacity as to Dubrovnik.

This year’s new Austrian Airlines route between Vienna and Zadar will operate more frequently from the beginning of August – 4 times a week (Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), which is one flight a week more than in July.

The Vienna – Zagreb line will continue to operate 8 times a week from August 1 to 15, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the morning, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays in the afternoon. Two flights a day are available every Thursday. The stated number of weekly flights will be in effect until mid-August, more precisely until August 15.

From August 16, Austrian Airlines will reduce the number of weekly flights on the route between the two capitals, and will operate 5 times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) exclusively in the afternoon. Smaller capacity aircraft, such as the DashQ400 and E195, have been announced on the route.

Croatian Aviation also reported that Helvetic Airways, a Swiss regional airline, previously announced POP-UP flights to Brac, and now it has launched flights on the route Zurich – Dubrovnik!

As we have already announced, this airline will operate one-off flights on the route Zurich – Brac.

Along with Brac, the company launched the Zurich – Dubrovnik line. One flight is offered, and on Friday, August 14, Helvetic should land at Dubrovnik Airport at 11:50 am. The return flight is scheduled for Sunday, August 16, at 6 pm from Dubrovnik Airport, with arrival in Zurich at 8 pm.

This allows tourists from Switzerland a direct flight to Dubrovnik, with a short 3-day vacation in the famous Croatian tourist destination. There are 112 seats on sale on this line.

Helvetic Airways has introduced “POP-UP” flights in order to better respond to the current situation and enable its passengers to rest in well-known European destinations.

Furthermore, Ex Yu Aviation reports that Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) began a new one weekly service between Kyiv and Split, which will run until September 26. The new route will run on Saturdays and were introduced last weekend with the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
