Croatian Aviation reports that Spanish national airline Iberia has confirmed that it plans to return to Dubrovnik and Zagreb in March this year.
In the 2020 summer season, Iberia operated on only one line to Croatia, connecting Madrid with Dubrovnik. All other routes to Croatian airports did not operate last summer due to low demand.
As confirmed to Croatian Aviation, Iberia plans to return to Zagreb and Dubrovnik at the end of March, and flights will operate depending on restrictive measures and the epidemiological situation.
The Madrid – Zagreb – Madrid line will operate its first flight this year on March 27. The airline plans to operate on this line 3 times a week until the end of April, mostly on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. A320 and A321 aircraft have been announced on the route. From the end of March to the beginning of May, the airline plans to offer over 5,700 seats between Zagreb and Madrid. An increase in the number of weekly flights is expected from mid-May, while in the peak of the summer season, Iberia should operate on this route at least once a day.
The Madrid – Dubrovnik – Madrid line should launch a little earlier, on March 25. The company initially plans three flights a week on this route, but there are already certain dates with ad-hoc flights on other days of the week. From the end of March to the beginning of May, the airline plans almost 20 return flights on this line, and slightly more seats are available for sale compared to the Zagreb line, over 6,500!
We remind you that Iberia did not operate to Zagreb, Split, and Zadar in the summer flight schedule last year, and judging by the current schedule, it will operate to Dubrovnik and Zagreb this year. Of course, changes are still possible. The airline has confirmed that it plans to operate on routes to Croatia according to the specified flight schedule, but this will, once again, depend on restrictive measures and the epidemiological situation that directly affects demand on flights. Routes to and from Madrid in that sense are no exception.
