Flights to Croatia: Smartwings Stops Prague-Split, Edelweiss Alters Flight Schedule
Croatian Aviation reports that the Czech airline Smartwings will soon complete regular traffic on the Prague-Split route. It was one of only two lines between the Czech capital and Croatia this summer season.
Smartwings relatively quickly resumed traffic to Split, connecting it daily to Prague with B737-800 aircraft. It was also the only direct line between Prague and Split this summer season.
This year, Croatia Airlines did not resume traffic on its seasonal route Zagreb – Prague due to reduced demand caused by the global pandemic, while Czech Airlines previously suspended traffic to all Croatian destinations.
Last summer, Smartwings regularly flew to Dubrovnik, but this year the line was not in traffic, as were numerous charter flights to Split.
The company will operate daily on the Prague – Split route this week, while flights will be announced on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday next week. Smartwings will make its last flight this summer to Split on Sunday, September 20, thus concluding operations for this year towards the Croatian market.
The option of a direct flight between Prague and Croatia remains with the low-cost airline Ryanair.
Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Edelweiss Air, a Swiss leisure airline and subsidiary of Swiss, continues to operate to Croatia in September, despite restrictions. The line to Dubrovnik will be canceled earlier than originally planned.
The only Swiss line to Croatia this year, between Geneva and Dubrovnik, stopped operating at the end of August. The line was in traffic only once a week, every Saturday.
The partner company Edelweiss Air operates on the lines from Zurich to Croatia. The company will have three lines by mid-September, to Dubrovnik, Split, and Pula.
The Zurich – Dubrovnik line is open once a week, every Friday. That will be the case until September 18, when it will make its last flight on this route this summer season.
The Zurich – Split line will be in operation throughout September, twice a week, every Saturday and Sunday. From September 27, the company will keep one flight a week, every Saturday.
The Zurich – Pula line also remains in operation throughout September, once a week, on Saturdays. On all routes to Croatia, Edelweiss uses an A320 aircraft.
In September, Croatia Airlines offers direct flights to Zurich from Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik. A number of departures on these lines were canceled through the first half of September.
