Irish low-cost airline Ryanair released tickets for this year’s winter flight schedule, which will take effect at the end of October. While there are no major operational changes in Zagreb (only two existing lines will not be in traffic), it is interesting to announce regular flights to Zadar Airport this winter, reports Croatian Aviation.
Following the opening of sales for this year’s winter flight schedule, a line between Zadar and Vienna is now available to book this winter on the Ryanair website.
Last fall, the CEO of Ryanair announced regular flights to Zadar in the winter, which ultimately did not happen as Ryanair winter flights did not take place from the Zadar Airport.
The airline now announces regular flights in the winter on the mentioned line between Vienna and Zadar, twice a week, on Fridays and Sundays. The question is whether the airline will stay with this plan and really fly to Zadar in the winter. However, given that we are only in April and November is still very far away, we must be careful to say that the flights will actually take place.
Croatian Aviation adds that we should be happy that the Irish carrier is planning this option, which would be extremely important for the airport and tourism in the region. We can only hope that the flights will run this winter and that in the coming weeks and months, Ryanair will announce more winter routes to Zadar Airport.
This also falls in line with the Split winter tourism initiative, which is pushing for flights to be extended into the winter schedule. You can read more about that here.
