The Lufthansa Group member plans to operate to four Croatian airports in June, 35 times a week. Namely, daily flights to Zagreb, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik have been announced, and two flights a day from Vienna to Zagreb and Dubrovnik have been announced on certain days.

Vienna and Zagreb

Austrian Airlines is announcing two flights a day between Vienna and Zagreb, every day except Wednesdays and Saturdays when one daily flight is available. According to Zagreb, this airline will use only E195 aircraft with a capacity of 120 seats. In June alone, the Vienna-Zagreb route will offer over 12,000 seats. Croatia Airlines also operates on this route, 5 times a week, every day except weekends.

Vienna and Zadar

Between Vienna and Zadar, Austrian Airlines is announcing daily flights in June with E195 and A320 aircraft. In total, more than 9,000 seats are available on 30 rotations, and Ryanair also operates on this line, four times a week.

Vienna and Split

Daily flights have also been announced between Vienna and Split, but mostly with the Airbus fleet (A320 and A321), so a larger number of seats is available, over 11,000. Croatia Airlines also operates on this route two times a week, and Hungarian Wizz Air three times a week. 

Vienna and Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is traditionally the most popular summer destination in Croatia in the Austrian Airlines network, so it has a higher announcement in terms of the weekly number of flights. Namely, Austrian will operate daily from Vienna to Dubrovnik, and from mid-June, two flights a day will be available on weekends, also exclusively with the Airbus fleet (A320 and A321).

Before the pandemic, Austrian came to Dubrovnik in the summer flight schedule with wide-body aircraft type B767-300ER. In June, over 13,000 seats were available on this line. In addition to this airline, Wizz Air also operates between Dubrovnik and Vienna three times a week, and Ryanair two times a week.

Between Vienna and the four mentioned Croatian airports, Austrian Airlines will offer more than 46,000 seats in June. Developing its destination network and Vienna as an important European hub, most seats in the summer season are occupied by transfer passengers from a number of European destinations, but also those in the US to which Austrian Airlines also has direct flights.

Flights to Croatia: Austrian Airlines Reduces Traffic to Croatia

September 22, 2020 - The latest news for flights to Croatia as Austrian Airlines reduces traffic to Croatia in October.

Austrian national airline Austrian Airlines has announced its flight schedule for October. The company will operate to three Croatian airports until mid-October; Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik.

As confirmed to Croatian Aviation by this airline, due to travel restrictions, Austria Airlines still decided to reduce the number of weekly flights to Croatia and end its traffic to Split earlier. As a reminder, Austrian launched the Vienna-Zadar line this summer, which was in operation until mid-September. Despite the pandemic, the company is satisfied with the results of this line and plans to continue operating on the same in the summer season of 2021.

The Vienna-Split route operated 6 times a week during the summer flight schedule, every day except Tuesday. Although Austrian planned to operate on this route throughout October, due to restrictions and low demand, the last flight will be earlier than planned - on October 10. From October 1 to October 10, the Vienna-Split route will be open three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in the afternoon.

The Vienna-Dubrovnik line also operated six times a week this summer season. It will be in traffic until the very end of the summer flight schedule - October 23.

From October 2 to 5, four flights a week have been announced, on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays,

From October 11 to 18, two flights a week have been announced, on Fridays and Sundays,

From October 19 to 23, two flights a week were announced, Mondays and Sundays.

Austrian is also announcing changes on the Vienna-Zagreb route. Although this line was supposed to operate 6 times a week in September, the company often canceled certain departures due to weak demand. For this reason, there has been a reduction in the number of weekly flights on the route, so Austrian will connect Vienna and Zagreb four times a week in October, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Flights were announced in the afternoon.

In the summer flight schedule of the previous years, Austrian flew to Split and Dubrovnik every day, often using its largest aircraft from the Airbus family (A321). At the same time, on the Vienna-Zagreb route, it operated up to 3 times a day. The only route that should be in traffic in this year's winter flight schedule is Vienna-Zagreb, but the number of weekly flights is still uncertain. The airline's plan for this route in the winter months should be announced in mid-October.
