New Lines for Zagreb Airport’s Summer Schedule Announced

Lauren Simmonds

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of March, 2020, in addition to opening up lines to new destinations, additional flights are being introduced to many existing destinations to and from Zagreb Airport.

Zagreb Airport (Franjo Tudjman) has so far enjoyed a positive start to 2020. In January, passenger growth was 6.2 percent, while in February it increased by 2 percent, despite the impact on coronavirus-related traffic. This summer’s flight schedule has thus seen flights to three new destinations and a dozen additional flights to existing destinations announced.

Domestic carrier Croatia Airlines has announced the introduction of flights to two new destinations, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Podgorica (Montenegro). Both destinations will be available through three flights per week starting in May. From June, Zagreb and Kiev (Ukraine) will be connected by direct flight with Windrose Airlines three times weekly.

Air France will be launching its second daily flight from Zagreb to Paris as of May. Along with Croatia Airlines’ daily flights, Zagreb Airport and Paris will be connected with three routes daily. British Airways is adding another four weeks of flights from London (Heathrow) to Zagreb, which will ultimately add up to a total of eleven flights per week between the two European nations.

Croatia Airlines is adding another weekly flight from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Zagreb Airport, offering passengers a total of eight flights a week from Zagreb to Amsterdam. Air Serbia will add two more weeks of flights from Belgrade, which will reach a total of thirteen flights a week between Belgrade and Zagreb.

Aegean is changing the type of aircraft it uses and will fly an Airbus A319 aircraft during the summer instead of a Q400 aircraft. It will also double its seating capacity on the route to Athens. Croatia Airlines will also increase the seating capacity of flights to Brussels (Belgium), Skopje (Macedonia) and Copenhagen (Denmark) using more A319 aircraft instead of the CRJ1000.

In addition to these scheduled flights, there are also talks going on with two new carriers from Africa and Asia for charter flights for Zagreb Airport’s 2020 summer flight schedule.

The situation with coronavirus has a certain negative impact on the traffic in Zagreb, so the situation is being carefully monitored and regular contact is going on between all companies, who are all monitoring their timetable updates on individual direct routes to Zagreb Airport.
