Flights to Croatia: Condor to Split, Aegean Resumes in June, Emirates Postponed Again
Croatian Aviation Croatian Aviation reports that German leisure company, Condor, announced they’d be resuming regular international lines from several German cities to well-known tourist destinations across Europe, including Split.
Before the outbreak of the pandemic, this German airline regularly flew on seasonal routes from German airports to Rijeka, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik, but in the current summer flight schedule, the lines have not yet started operating.
In its last announcement, the company announced the resumption of operations, and the first line to Croatia will be introduced from the end of June.
From June 26, Condor will fly on two routes to Split:
Frankfurt – Split, from June 26, twice a week (Fridays and Sundays),
Dusseldorf – Split, from June 26, twice a week (Fridays and Sundays).
In addition to these two direct routes, the company, in cooperation with Lufthansa, also offers flights to Hamburg and Munich with short transfers. The mentioned lines will be operated by A320 aircraft, with a capacity of 180 seats.
Tickets are already on sale on the airline’s official website. Split will thus be connected to Dusseldorf 3 times a week, considering that Eurowings, as we announced earlier, will fly between these two cities from June 20.
The airline has not yet confirmed the start of traffic from German cities to Zadar, Rijeka and Dubrovnik.
Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reported that Aegean Airlines announced new start dates for operations to destinations in Croatia.
The Greek airline plans to fly to 3 destinations in Croatia: Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb in the current summer flight schedule. The line to Zadar was canceled in 2019.
Athens-Dubrovnik will be in operation twice a week from June 25, wit A320 aircraft. Aircraft of this type at Aegean has a capacity of 174 seats. The increase to five-week flights is planned for July 3.
The Athens-Split line has been announced four times a week from July 6, with the A319 aircraft, with a capacity of 144 seats.
The Athens-Zagreb route will again operate from July 1, three times a week, on A319 and A320 aircraft (capacity 144 and 174 seats, respectively).
Finally, Croatian Aviation reports that Emirates, an airline from the United Arab Emirates, has additionally canceled the start of operations on the Zagreb-Dubai route.
Although this seasonal line was supposed to start operating on the first day of the summer flight schedule, this did not happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After that, the company repeatedly delayed the start of operations on this line, and the latest information was that this well-known company would come to the Croatian capital again from July 1 this year.
Emirates usually flies on the Dubai-Zagreb route every day, but due to reduced demand, flights are now postponed until August 1, when the line should start operating with only four flights per week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays). B47-300ER aircraft with a capacity of 354 seats have been announced on the route.
Given that this is the only seasonal Emirates route in the entire destination network, there is a high probability that this airline will not return to Zagreb this season.
