Flights to Croatia: Lufthansa Delays Zagreb Service to March 2021, Air France Cancels Split

August 24, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb and Split.

Croatian Aviation reports that in the cancellation of many routes, German Lufthansa will not return to Zagreb Airport on the Frankfurt route anytime soon. 

For many years, Lufthansa has been a regular user of Zagreb Airport, to which it operates from its two German hubs – Munich and Frankfurt. While traffic on the Munich-Zagreb route resumed this summer, the same will not happen on the Frankfurt route.

The company suspended traffic on the line during the coronavirus pandemic, and it has not been launched to date. According to the latest announcement by Lufthansa, all flights on this route have been canceled until March 28, 2021!

Lufthansa has thus completely left the Frankfurt-Zagreb route to its Star Alliance partner, Croatia Airlines, which operates on this route several times a day. We remind you that the Croatian national airline operated on this route during the “lockdown”.

In the summer flight schedule in 2021, Lufthansa is again announcing two daily flights on the Frankfurt-Zagreb route. Until then, you will be able to travel with this company from Zagreb only to Munich.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Air France has announced its flight schedule for September this year, in which there will be some operational changes on the routes to Croatia.

In this year’s summer flight schedule, the company resumed traffic to three destinations in Croatia – Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb. As the end of the summer season approaches, an increasing number of companies will stop operating on their seasonal routes, and so will Air France.

Namely, the Split-Paris line currently operates six times a week (every day except Saturday) and this will continue until the end of this month. After August 30, Air France will suspend traffic on this route and will not offer direct flights between the two cities until next summer season.

Dubrovnik Airport is currently connected to Paris four times a week, but Air France will continue to offer direct flights on this route in September. Thus, Dubrovnik and Paris will be connected three times a week, only one flight a week less than in August.

The Zagreb-Paris line continues to operate daily in September, with a morning departure from Paris to Zagreb. The company has previously given up on introducing a second daily flight on this line.
