Flights to Croatia: Vueling Reduces Traffic to Split and Dubrovnik

Daniela Rogulj



August 13, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, and Brac. 

Croatian Aviation reports that Spanish low-cost airline Vueling has announced its flight schedule for September in which it will reduce the number of weekly flights to Split and Dubrovnik.

In July, Vueling had 14 weekly operations from Barcelona and Rome to Dubrovnik, while the number of weekly operations to Split was smaller – 12 times a week. The company will continue to operate to Split and Dubrovnik in September according to the following schedule:

Barcelona – Dubrovnik, twice a week (Tuesdays and Sundays),

Rome – Dubrovnik, twice a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays),

Barcelona – Split, twice a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays),

Rome – Split, twice a week (Tuesdays and Sundays).

In the peak season, the company had four flights a week on the Rome – Dubrovnik route, and three flights a week on the lines Barcelona – Dubrovnik, Rome – Split and Barcelona – Split. As we approach the end of the summer season, a reduction in the number of weekly flights is to be expected, so Vueling’s move is not surprising.

Also, the Barcelona – Zagreb line will continue to operate in September, once a week, every Saturday evening. Vueling will thus fly to three airports in Croatia next month, with 18 operations a week.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Croatia Airlines will still not use A319 aircraft on a regular route from Zagreb to Brac, and on charter flights from Brac to Austria (Graz and Linz).

Namely, the company previously announced an increase in capacity on these routes, given that the charterer of these charter flights requested a higher capacity aircraft. From the end of August, Croatia Airlines planned to use an A319 aircraft every Saturday on the regular domestic route Zagreb – Brac due to the positioning of the aircraft at this airport, from where charter flights to Graz and Linz were to be made.

The national company conducted training flights with this type of aircraft in the airspace around the island of Brac on July 11 this year, preparing for regular operations.

The mentioned flights were not canceled. Croatia Airlines will continue to operate on a regular route from Zagreb to Brac, as well as on charter routes from Brac to Graz and Linz, but with a capacity of 76 seats (DashQ400).

Recall, German Sundair announced a regular charter line between Frankfurt and Brač, but that line was also canceled.
