German national airline Lufthansa will operate in January 2022 between Frankfurt and Zagreb 10 times a week, connecting Zagreb with the rest of Europe and the world through its largest hub, reports Croatian Aviation.
Regular flights between Frankfurt and Zagreb will thus continue in the part of the year when passenger demand is already very low, especially now, during the global pandemic.
Lufthansa no longer operates on its second line to Zagreb, from Munich, which has been suspended for a long time due to COVID-19. Lufthansa plans to renew this line on the first day of the summer flight schedule next year (March 27, 2022), but it remains to be seen whether there will be any operational changes on the route. Zagreb is still connected to Munich by Croatia Airlines, which operates to Munich on the routes from Split and Osijek.
In January, the German airline will operate between Frankfurt and Zagreb 10 times a week, with two daily flights available on Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays, while one flight is announced on other days.
A319 aircraft with a capacity of 138 seats will operate on the route. It is one of the most common aircraft in the European sky and is 33 meters long. The maximum cruising altitude of this aircraft is 11,800 meters, the top speed is 840 km / h, and the range is 3,400 kilometers.
Croatia Airlines also operates between Zagreb and Frankfurt, offering an additional two to four daily flights, meaning Zagreb is very well connected to Frankfurt at any time of the day, a hub from which it is possible to make transfers to several destinations in Europe and the world.
From January to the end of October this year, almost 19.2 million passengers passed through this hub, and in October alone, 3.3 million.
According to Eurocontrol, in the 48th week of this year (November 29-December 5), Frankfurt Airport holds second place on the list of busiest airports (first place is Amsterdam, third Paris CDG) with a total of 939 daily landings or takeoffs.
