August 8, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik.
Croatian Aviation reports that low-budget German airline Eurowings plans to connect Dubrovnik with four destinations in Germany in September this year.
Eurowings has launched its lines to all destinations in Croatia except Dubrovnik, but the company plans to change that from the end of this month. Namely, Eurowings will launch four international flights to Dubrovnik Airport this summer season, but with a minimum number of weekly flights on the following routes:
Dusseldorf – Dubrovnik, from August 30, once a week (Sunday),
Cologne – Dubrovnik, from September 6, once a week (Sunday),
Berlin – Dubrovnik, from September 6, once a week (Sunday),
Hamburg – Dubrovnik, from September 6, once a week (Sunday).
A319 and A320 aircraft are planned on all routes, the backbone of the airline’s network on flights within Europe.
Eurowings was significantly present in Dubrovnik last summer, but in this year’s summer flight schedule, it did not run routes to this airport. However, in September, the company will, although only once a week, connect the four German cities with Dubrovnik Airport.
Furthermore, Hainan Airlines, one of the largest Chinese airlines, landed at Dubrovnik Airport on Friday!
The A330-200 aircraft took off from the Chinese city of Chongqing at 3:22 pm local time, transporting approximately 150 Chinese workers who will be engaged in the construction of the Peljesac Bridge. The plane was scheduled to land at Dubrovnik Airport at around 7:30 pm, after more than 10 hours on a direct flight from China. The plane will take off from Dubrovnik to China Saturday morning.
The aircraft with registration number B-5963 is only 6 years old and can carry a total of 214 passengers (36 in business and 178 passengers in economy class). This is the first direct flight from China organized exclusively for workers from the Peljesac Bridge.
