Flights to Croatia: Israir to Zagreb, SAS and Norwegian Continue to Split, and More

Daniela Rogulj



September 2, 2020 – The latest news for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Rijeka, and Zadar. Israir to Zagreb, SAS and Norwegian Air to Split, and Polish LOT to numerous destinations in Croatia this September.

Croatian Aviation reports that Israir, an Israeli airline based in Tel Aviv, has resumed traffic on the route between Zagreb and Tel Aviv. The line was not in circulation this year because it is seasonal, and due to the pandemic, the company did not launch it earlier.

Regular flights between Tel Aviv and Zagreb started operating on August 19 this year, and so far 8 rotations have been made in August. The company offers departures on its official website throughout almost the whole of September, and as many as 11 rotations are available on this line:

between September 1 and 6, three flights are announced (Tuesday, Friday, Sunday),

between September 7 and 13, three flights are announced (Monday, Thursday and Friday),

between 14 and 20 September, three flights are announced (Monday, Tuesday and Sunday),

between September 21 and 27, two flights are announced (Friday and Saturday).

In last year’s summer flight schedule, the company operated with significantly more weekly departures to Zagreb. Night flights, the only regular flights in the Croatia Airlines network, were operated on the regular line between Tel Aviv and Zagreb.

On the Israir Airlines route to Zagreb, there are A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 seats.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Norwegian Air and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will continue to operate on their scheduled flights from Scandinavia to Split Airport throughout September.

Although there are restrictions when traveling between Croatia and certain Scandinavian countries, the two mentioned airlines will continue to operate on their scheduled flights to Split Airport through September. The number of weekly flights on all routes has decreased compared to July and August.

Norwegian Air operates on three routes in September

Norwegian will operate only to Split Airport this month, with three direct routes from Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen.

Oslo – Split will operate twice a week in September, every Tuesday and Saturday,

Stockholm – Split will operate once a week, every Saturday,

Copenhagen – Split will operate once a week, also on Saturdays.

Scandinavian Airlines flies to Split

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will also keep three routes to Split, from Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Gothenburg. All lines operate once a week, on Saturdays:

Stockholm – Split,

Copenhagen – Split,

Gothenburg – Split.

The Gothenburg – Split route is not for sale on the airline’s website, given that it is a charter line. SAS will use A320neo aircraft on all three routes to Split Airport, which have a capacity of 174 seats in the fleet of this carrier.

Croatia Airlines offers one flight a week (Saturdays) on the Split – Copenhagen route, while flights from Zagreb to the Danish capital are daily (certain flights have been canceled on this route).

Finally, although the Polish government announced a ban on flights from several countries from September 2 this year, including flights from Croatia, Croatian Aviation reports that the countries were subsequently revised and Croatia is no longer on the list.

Polish LOT will thus continue to operate on as many as 7 lines to Croatia in September this year:

Warsaw – Zagreb, daily,

Warsaw – Rijeka, once a week, on Sundays (until September 13),

Warsaw – Split, once a week, on Sundays,

Warsaw – Zadar, once a week, on Saturdays,

Rzeszów – Zadar, once a week, on Saturdays (until September 19),

Warsaw – Dubrovnik, four times a week, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays,

Krakow – Dubrovnik, once a week, on Saturdays.

LOT also planned to operate on the Budapest-Dubrovnik route in September, which was canceled because Hungary has practically closed its borders as of September 1.
