Ryanair operates on three more new routes from Zagreb Airport to three new airports in the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Cyprus – Paphos, Eindhoven, and Basel, reports Croatian Aviation.
Zagreb – Basel – Zagreb
Ryanair connects Zagreb and Basel twice a week. Basel Airport is located in France, but an extraterritorial route connects it to the city. Basel is the second-largest city in Switzerland, with approximately 170,000 inhabitants. In addition, a relatively large number of emigrated Croatian citizens live in Basel and the wider region, and an even more significant number of diasporas from Serbia, BiH, and Kosovo.
Zagreb 13:45 – 15:15 Basel 15:40 – 17:10 Zagreb
The Irish low-cost airline will operate on this route twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, in the afternoon, with A320 aircraft. However, it should be noted that Basel is not a big hub for Ryanair; most of the traffic at this airport is generated by the British EasyJet.
Zagreb – Eindhoven – Zagreb
Zagreb Airport is also connected to Eindhoven, the fifth-largest city in the Netherlands, with around 400,000 inhabitants in its urban area. The airport is located very close to the border with Belgium, and due to its location, these flights are used by passengers who continue to Essen, Dortmund, Cologne, or Dusseldorf.
Eindhoven is a large base of Ryanair and Hungarian Wizz Air and Transavia. Transavia operates from Eindhoven to coastal airports in the summer, while there are no scheduled flights in the winter.
Zagreb 17:35 – 19:30 Eindhoven 19:55 – Zagreb 21:50
Ryanair will also use A320 aircraft from the Zagreb base on this route and operate in the afternoon and evening. It is expected that Ryanair will record good results on this line, and ticket prices are currently very affordable.
Zagreb – Paphos – Zagreb
This morning, the third new line took off for Paphos at 6:40 am, connecting Zagreb and Cyprus twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays.
Zagreb 06:40 – 10:35 Paphos 11:00 -12: 55 Zagreb
This line is primarily oriented to Zagreb tourists who travel to Cyprus for a short weekend vacation or longer, especially in the summer months. There have been no regular flights between Cyprus and Zagreb, and traffic at Paphos Airport is mainly due to Ryanair flights.
In addition to these three new lines, new lines to Thessaloniki, Dublin, Manchester, and Malaga also started this week.
