Croatian Aviation reports that KLM has temporarily suspended sales on a new, second daily flight between Zagreb and Amsterdam.
The world’s oldest airline has thus suspended sales on its second daily flight between Zagreb and Amsterdam due to low demand thanks to the introduction of restrictive measures for travel between countries.
We remind you that on December 4, 2020, KLM announced the news that it would introduce a second daily flight to Zagreb, operating between the two cities from February 14, 2021, 14 times a week, with an overnight stay in Zagreb.
The new, second daily flight has been temporarily withdrawn from sale and is not available for booking, but as Croatian Aviation learns, the airline has not completely given up on this plan. KLM is expected to offer 14 weekly flights when there are no restrictive measures in place that greatly limit the possibility of travel, which is automatically maintained on the booking status.
Recall that on all flights to or via Amsterdam, it is currently necessary to have a negative PCR test and a “rapid” test, which must not be older than 4 hours before the start of the trip. For this reason, rapid testing is also possible at Zagreb Airport, given that Zagreb is currently the only Croatian airport that has a direct connection to the Dutch capital (daily flights of Croatia Airlines and KLM). Passengers pay 250 kuna for a quick test at Zagreb Airport.
Croatian Aviation also reports that the Serbian national airline Air Serbia has reduced the number of weekly flights between Belgrade and Zagreb this month.
Although the airline generally had 3 to 4 and even more weekly flights in the previous months, as of February 8, only two flights a week are available on this route.
Until the end of this month, Air Serbia will operate on the Belgrade-Zagreb-Belgrade route twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays (Monday mornings, Friday evenings) with ATR75 aircraft.
From February 8 to 28, Air Serbia will operate only six return flights, with approximately 850 seats available to passengers in both directions.
It is expected that Air Serbia will renew a larger number of routes to Croatia in the summer flight schedule, with destinations that operated even in the summer of 2020 (Dubrovnik and Split), it is possible to return routes from Belgrade to Pula and Zadar.
