Flights to Croatia: Windrose Announced Zagreb-Kyiv Fights from October

August 29, 2020 – The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar, and Rijeka.

Croatian Aviation reports that Windrose Airlines planned to launch the Kyiv-Zagreb route at the beginning of the summer flight schedule, but this route was not established for objective reasons.

The company then postponed the date establishing traffic on this line and then canceled it completely for this year. But Windrose made another change and reopened sales, announcing the first flight for October this year.

The originally planned three flights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays) are no longer on sale, but the company plans to connect Zagreb and Kyiv twice a week, every Wednesday and Sunday. The first flight has been announced for October 4, and flights will run throughout the winter flight schedule (until the end of March 2021).

This will be the first completely new line for Zagreb Airport this year, which can certainly be considered a success in this crisis. A direct line has never connected the capitals of Ukraine and Croatia.

Windrose plans to use the E145 aircraft on the route to Zagreb, with a capacity of 48 seats. The plane will depart from Kyiv at 11:30 am, with the expected arrival in Zagreb at 12:40 pm. Departure from Zagreb is planned for 13:25, and arrival in Kyiv at 16:20.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reported that Poland would ban flights from 46 countries from September 2 this year, and Croatia is among the many countries, according to a draft law released on Thursday. LOT, however, previously announced numerous routes to Croatian airports for September this year.

The Polish national airline currently operates on regular routes from numerous Polish cities to as many as 5 Croatian airports: Zagreb, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik. Although many of these lines will stop operating at the end of this month, which is logical considering that the end of the summer season is approaching, the Polish company announced traffic on as many as 7 lines to Croatia through September:

Warsaw – Zagreb,

Warsaw – Rijeka,

Warsaw – Split,

Warsaw – Zadar,

Rzeszow – Zadar,

Warsaw – Dubrovnik,

Krakow – Dubrovnik.

All these routes are still on sale on the LOT website, but the Polish national airline will likely be forced to cancel flights on these routes from the mentioned date (September 2). According to the announcements of the Polish authorities, with the ban on flights between Croatia and Poland, LOT has almost no other choice.

In addition to those who planned to travel directly between Polish and Croatian cities, this decision also affected many transfer passengers that LOT attracts, given the favorable prices.
