Flights to Croatia: Austrian Airlines Continues to Operate Despite Border Restrictions

August 18, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik.

Croatian Aviation reports that Austrian national carrier Austria Airlines has confirmed that it will continue to operate to four Croatian airports, despite measures introduced at the border between Croatia and Austria.

Namely, Austrian Airlines will continue to operate to Croatia and in September from Vienna to four Croatian airports: Zagreb, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik.

The Zagreb – Vienna line will operate 6 days a week, every day except Saturday in the afternoon.

The Zadar – Vienna line will operate until September 12, as previously planned, four times a week (Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays).

The Split – Vienna line will also be in operation in September, from September 1 to 13, every day except Wednesday. From September 15 to 20, the line will operate five times a week (there are no flights on Mondays and Wednesdays), while from September 22, there will be three flights a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The Dubrovnik – Vienna line will operate 6 times a week in September, every day except Tuesday.

Considering the Austrian Airlines network throughout Europe, the company has a large share of transfer passengers to destinations in Croatia, that are not subject to the new measures introduced on the border between Croatia and Austria. For this reason, the company currently plans to operate to Croatia according to the schedule we have specified.

Recall, as of Monday, August 17, all travelers arriving from Croatia have to carry a medical certificate proving a negative COIVID-19 PCR test.

Furthermore, Ex-Yu Aviation reports that low-cost carrier easyJet will end a handful of routes, mostly to the Croatian coast, as they close three UK bases – Stansted, Southend and Newcastle. The discontinued routes include Stansted to Dubrovnik and Split, from Southend to Dubrovnik and Pula, and from Newcastle to Split. The closure will come into effect from September 1.
