Norwegian Air Downgrades Winter Service to Zagreb

Daniela Rogulj

The low-cost airline has decided to stop its winter service to the Croatian capital. 

This winter season, the popular low-cost carrier Norwegian Air will conclude its operations from Copenhagen and Stockholm to Zagreb on October 27, 2018. Norwegian Air will thus only serve Zagreb in the summer, with flights expected to resume in April next year, reports Ex Yu Aviation on September 7, 2018. 

The low-cost carrier began flights to Croatia’s capital in 2010 from Copenhagen and increased the lines from Copenhagen and Stockholm to run once a week throughout the year. 

“Our routes to Zagreb from Stockholm and Copenhagen will not operate this coming winter season. However, we are constantly evaluating our route network and it’s possible that it will operate during the winter in the future,” said Norwegian Air in a statement. 

While Zagreb and Stockholm will not be connected throughout the year as a result, Croatia Airlines will continue with their Copenhagen flight in the winter. Norwegian will increase flights from Stockholm and Oslo within the region, however, ensuring the two cities are connected to Belgrade year-round. They will also keep flights from Stockholm and Sarajevo throughout the year, and keep Oslo and Helsinki connected to Pristina year-round. 

Norwegian Air will keep their seasonal flights to Dubrovnik, Split, Pula, Rijeka and Zadar, which was added this year. 

Norwegian Air is the third busiest low-cost airline in Europe, though they are the fifth largest by seat share – behind low-cost carriers easyJet, Euriwings, and Ryanair.
