Flights to Croatia: Iberia Express Now Connecting Zadar Airport and Madrid

Daniela Rogulj

Zadar Airport recorded their strongest month yet in June this year, which is also reflected in the results for the first half of the year, when almost 300,000 passengers, or an increase of 38 percent, traveled through Zadar Airport compared to the same period last year, reports and on July 3, 2019.

In June alone, Zadar Airport recorded flights by 746 aircraft, which is about 170 more than in May this year, and based on the announcements for the summer flight schedule, these positive trends are expected to continue in the other summer months.

The most significant contribution to Zadar’s growth is Ryanair, which has cooperated with Zadar Airport for the last 12 years and has introduced a record summer flight schedule with new destinations such as Berlin, Cologne, Dublin and others. In addition to these cities, other carriers will connect Zadar this summer with Hamburg, Nuremberg, Prague, Belgrade-London, Krakow, Poznan, Milan and Eindhoven, which are all new destinations this year.

Zadar Airport is also developing cooperation with other low-cost air carriers, including Eurowings, easyJet, and Iberia Express, which, as part of the Iberia Group, will link Zadar with Madrid twice a week until the end of August.

About 100 passengers were on the Iberia Express inaugural flight from Madrid to Zadar on Tuesday, and flights are expected to be close to full capacity until the end of the season.

“With the introduction of Zadar as a new destination, Iberia Express begins operations on the Croatian market,” said Zadar Airport, repeating that this year, they expect a total of 700,000 passengers or 100,000 more than in 2018.

For the fifth year in a row, Iberia Express has been declared the world’s best low-cost airline by the FlightGlobal consulting agency.

Iberia Express will fly on this route twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays until August 31st. The departure from Zadar is at 21:35, and arrival to Madrid is 20 minutes after midnight. The return flight from Madrid takes off at 18:20 and arrives in Zadar at 20:55.
