August 27, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Split.
Croatian Aviation reports that this summer, Aer Lingus launched only one direct line to Croatia, while before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, four were announced.
The company introduced the Dublin – Split line only on July 20 this year, at the same time canceling the lines from Dublin to Pula and Dubrovnik, as well as the Cork – Dubrovnik line for this summer season.
Aer Lingus aircraft operated three times a week on a direct route to Split (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays), but currently, the number of weekly flights has been reduced and flights on Wednesdays are excluded from the schedule. The company will continue to operate between Split and Dublin twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) until September 11, after which Aer Lingus will conclude this summer season and traffic to Croatia.
Direct flights of other airlines
Travelers still have several options for direct travel between Ireland and Croatia. The well-known low-cost airline, Ryanair, will operate throughout September on two routes from Dublin to Croatia:
Dublin – Split line continues to operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays,
Dublin – Dubrovnik line continues to operate twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
The Croatian national airline will also continue to operate on the route Zagreb – Dublin, three flights a week have been announced, every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, with an A319 aircraft with a capacity of 144 seats.
This news comes one day after popular low-cost airline easyJet announced it would not operate on 20 international routes to four Croatian airports in September. The company will thus suspend certain lines earlier than planned, solely due to weak demand.
