Austrian Airlines Croatia Flights to Operate 23 Times Per Week

March 15, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Austrian Airlines Croatia flights will operate 23 times per week from the beginning of the summer flight schedule. 

Austrian national airline and Lufthansa Group member Austrian Airlines will renew seasonal routes from Vienna to Split and Dubrovnik from the end of March, and to Zadar in early April. There will also be an increase in the number of weekly operations at Zagreb International Airport, reports Croatian Aviation.

Namely, Austrian Airlines is reintroducing seasonal routes from its main hub in Vienna to Split and Dubrovnik at the beginning of the summer flight schedule, which begins on March 27 this year. In the first days of April, traffic will resume between Vienna and Zadar Airport.

The first flight between Vienna and Split has been announced for Sunday, March 27. At the beginning of the summer flight schedule, Austrian will operate between the two cities 6 times a week, every day except Tuesdays. Already in the second half of April, there will be an increase in the number of flights on a daily basis.

In the first seven rotations to Split, Embraer 195 aircraft will operate, as well as the largest aircraft from the A320 family, the A321. Currently, there are 2,000 seats in that period.

There will be a similar flight schedule at the beginning of the season to Dubrovnik Airport. Five flights a week have been announced, starting on March 27, every day except Tuesdays and Thursdays, but there will also be an increase in the number of rotations by the Easter holiday.

1,872 seats are available on the first 7 flights between Dubrovnik and Vienna, and A320 and E195 aircraft will operate on the route.

Austrian will introduce a line to Zadar a little later than Split and Dubrovnik. The first flight has been announced for Saturday, April 9, and three flights a week have been announced at the start of the season, every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Prior to the pandemic, the Austrian airline operated twice a day to Zagreb, but this route has not yet returned to its 2019 capacity. Apparently, this will not happen at the beginning of this summer season either, although there will be an increase in weekly rotations.

Namely, from Sunday, March 27, Austrian will operate between Vienna and Zagreb eight times a week, every day except Wednesday, with two flights a day announced on Fridays and Sundays.

From Sunday, March 27, to Sunday, March 3, Austrian will offer 2,160 seats to and from Zagreb. Namely, as the airline retired all DashQ400 aircraft in June last year, Embraer 195 aircraft with a capacity of 120 seats will fly to Zagreb, so the previously mentioned smaller number of flights was compensated by increasing capacity or changing the type of aircraft on the route.

Flights to Croatia: Austrian Airlines Continues to Operate Despite Border Restrictions

August 18, 2020 - The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for flights to Croatia with updates for Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik.

Croatian Aviation reports that Austrian national carrier Austria Airlines has confirmed that it will continue to operate to four Croatian airports, despite measures introduced at the border between Croatia and Austria.

Namely, Austrian Airlines will continue to operate to Croatia and in September from Vienna to four Croatian airports: Zagreb, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik.

The Zagreb - Vienna line will operate 6 days a week, every day except Saturday in the afternoon.

The Zadar - Vienna line will operate until September 12, as previously planned, four times a week (Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays).

The Split - Vienna line will also be in operation in September, from September 1 to 13, every day except Wednesday. From September 15 to 20, the line will operate five times a week (there are no flights on Mondays and Wednesdays), while from September 22, there will be three flights a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The Dubrovnik - Vienna line will operate 6 times a week in September, every day except Tuesday.

Considering the Austrian Airlines network throughout Europe, the company has a large share of transfer passengers to destinations in Croatia, that are not subject to the new measures introduced on the border between Croatia and Austria. For this reason, the company currently plans to operate to Croatia according to the schedule we have specified.

Recall, as of Monday, August 17, all travelers arriving from Croatia have to carry a medical certificate proving a negative COIVID-19 PCR test.

Furthermore, Ex-Yu Aviation reports that low-cost carrier easyJet will end a handful of routes, mostly to the Croatian coast, as they close three UK bases - Stansted, Southend and Newcastle. The discontinued routes include Stansted to Dubrovnik and Split, from Southend to Dubrovnik and Pula, and from Newcastle to Split. The closure will come into effect from September 1.
