Good news from Croatian Aviation this morning – Pula Airport will soon be connected again by a regular Transavia route with Rotterdam!
Pula Airport is preparing for a summer season in which a significant recovery in passenger traffic is expected compared to 2020 and 2021. Certain routes are already in operation, like the earlier announced Lufthansa, Croatia Airlines, Trade Air, and Ryanair, and now Transavia will soon return to Pula, too.
This well-known low-cost airline is planning the first flight of this summer season between Rotterdam and Pula on Thursday, April 21. Flights have been announced three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday with B737-700 and B737-800 aircraft. In the peak of the summer season, 5 weekly flights are planned on this route, every day except Wednesdays and Fridays.
The number of operations in September and October will be gradually reduced, and at the end of the summer flight schedule (the very end of October), the line will stop operating.
This is the only line by this airline to Pula Airport, which this year will have to compensate a significant number of passengers due to a lack of Russian and Ukrainian guests who in previous years came to Istria and Croatia in large numbers via this airport.
Recall, easyJet announced earlier this week that there would be changes on several of its routes to Croatian coastal airports, Pula included.
Namely, the line between London (Gatwick) and Pula will run daily from the end of June instead of 6 times a week, while capacity is reduced on the Glasgow – Pula line. The smaller capacity A319 will run once a week instead of the A320.
