October 14, 2020 – The latest news for flights to Croatia as Wizz Air will not operate to Split Airport this winter.
Croatian Aviation reports that this summer, Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air introduced a new route to Croatia from Dortmund to Split, which was originally scheduled to operate in the winter flight schedule this year. However, that will no longer happen.
The Split – Dortmund line started operating on August 1 this year, after Wizz Air opened its new base in this German city. Flights to Split operated three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Wizz Air, however, decided to operate on this route only in the summer flight schedule, which is not strange given the current global pandemic and reduced demand. Split is no exception, and the company will not operate this winter to airports in the region where there are significantly more flights, such as Skopje, Tuzla, Belgrade, and a number of other destinations.
Split Airport is the only destination of this well-known low-cost airline in the Republic of Croatia. Recall, Wizz Air operates on four international routes to Split in the summer; from Warsaw, Katowice, London and Dortmund.
Wizz Air used to operate to Osijek Airport (on the Basel – Osijek route), but this line was canceled even before the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic.
The company has not yet announced the summer flight schedule for next year, so it remains to be seen whether Wizz Air will introduce new routes to Croatian destinations in the summer of 2021. This airline, as Croatian Aviation unofficially found out, is interested in introducing routes to Zagreb Airport.
Recall, as we announced on Tuesday, Eurowings will therefore operate in the winter flight schedule to Split and Zagreb from three German airports: Cologne, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart. You can read more about these lines HERE.
