Iberia Flights to Split and Zagreb Return Next Month!

May 25, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Iberia flights to Split and Zagreb return next month, while the Dubrovnik line will increase to four flights a week! 

Croatian Aviation reports that Spanish national airline, Iberia, will resume traffic to two Croatian airports - Zagreb and Split - from the beginning of June.

Iberia is running again to Zagreb and Split from the beginning of June! Since March, the Spanish national airline has been operating on a regular route between Madrid and Dubrovnik and will reintroduce routes to Split and Zagreb next month. 

Return to Zagreb

These lines were not in operation in the summer of 2020, and the airline only had reduced traffic to Dubrovnik Airport. Still, in the summer of 2021, Iberia will operate to the Croatian capital, Split, and later to Zadar, which will restore traffic on all lines Iberia had in the summer season of 2019, before the pandemic.

The Madrid - Zagreb - Madrid line was announced on Friday, June 4. Initially, Iberia aircraft will operate on this route three times a week, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Three flights a week have been announced throughout June, and A320 aircraft will operate on the route.

Iberia will offer a total of 4,104 seats between Zagreb and Madrid in June.

Madrid - Split - Madrid from June 1

In addition to Zagreb, Iberia will return to Split Airport as of June 1. In the first half of the month, two flights a week are announced, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and from mid-June, flights on Saturdays and Sundays are added.

As early as the end of June, Iberia will operate between Madrid and Split five times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Currently, 16 rotations have been announced on this line in June, with 5,472 seats available for sale between the two mentioned cities.

More flights to Dubrovnik

As we mentioned earlier, Dubrovnik is the only Croatian airport to which Iberia operated in the summer of 2020 and is also the company's first destination in Croatia this summer season.

So far, two flights a week have been available on this route, and as many as four have been announced since the beginning of June (from Friday to Monday).

From Friday, June 18, Iberia plans to operate daily between Dubrovnik and Madrid, with A320 aircraft, so that the Spanish company will offer the largest number of seats to Dubrovnik. There are currently as many as 7,182 seats on sale.

Zadar from July!

Regular flights on the route between Madrid and Zadar are currently postponed to the beginning of July (from July 3). Two flights a week have been announced on this route, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, but given that the start date of operations is still quite far, there is no need to hurry with booking because the airline could continue to cancel flights on this route.

In June, Iberia will have three lines to Croatia with a total of 15 weekly operations. Between Madrid, Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik, there are as many as 16,755 seats on offer.

American Demand for Dubrovnik and Croatia Increases by 205%

May 22, 2021 - The relaxation of measures to combat the pandemic, given the decrease in infections and the current vaccination campaign, is one of the reasons why the American demand for Dubrovnik and Croatia as travel destinations for this summer season has increased considerably.

Dubrovnik undoubtedly stands out as one of the most popular destinations to visit in the summer. And although the city has a lot to offer twelve months of the year, and this is something that has recently been worked on through the digital nomads project as an ideal destination to work remotely, it cannot be denied that its beaches, islands, history, and nightlife place it at the top of the rankings made by hundreds of prestigious tourism and travel magazines and portals each year.

As hrturizam.hr writes, Croatian destinations are increasingly being searched on the US market, so the well-known American magazine Forbes published data that the search and American demand for Dubrovnik on online search engines are continuously growing, said the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board in the USA, Ina Rodin.

A Forbes article states that on the popular KAYAK travel search page, the American demand for Dubrovnik as a travel destination for this summer season has recorded a search jump of as much as 205 percent, followed by Zurich with a growth of 167 percent, Prague with 144 percent and Reykjavik with a growth of 143 percent. The article states that the growth of search is directly related to the easing of passenger restrictions in Croatia and Iceland, and mentions that Croatia and Greece are currently the most sought-after destinations on the Click & Boat boat rental site.

The well-known American television network CNBC states that Croatia's Internet search is growing by 31 percent and Iceland's by 22 percent. Although Americans are expected to travel the most in their own country in 2021, airline searches rose 47 percent after European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen's optimistic statement hinted that vaccinated Americans could travel to Europe this summer. The renowned American newspaper The New York Times also writes about the conditions of arrival and stay in Croatia, as well as the measures that are currently in force.

The American The Wall Street Journal also makes recommendations for European travel, and the list includes, in addition to Greece, Croatia, and Dubrovnik, which were mentioned as perfect destinations for this year's American vacation.

According to the CNTB, 70,000 overnight stays from the US market have been made in Croatia so far this year, which is an increase of 38 percent compared to the same period last year.

TAP Portugal Flights to Zagreb Return in June after 5 Years, Wizz Air to Connect Warsaw-Dubrovnik

May 21, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as TAP Portugal flights to Zagreb return next month, and Wizz Air announces its second route to Dubrovnik Airport.

Croatian Aviation reports that TAP Portugal returns to Zagreb on June 2! After more than 5 years, the Portuguese national airline will resume traffic on the route between Lisbon and Zagreb Airport.

The airline announced it would reintroduce this line in March last year on March 28, but flights were delayed from month to month due to the global pandemic. The airline has now confirmed that it will start regular flights on this route from June 2.

The line will operate three times a week from the beginning of June, every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Although A320 aircraft were originally announced on this route, the airline announced E190 aircraft with a capacity of 106 seats in June.

A total of 2,756 seats will be offered on this line between the two cities in June.

From the beginning of July to the end of October, higher-capacity aircraft (A319, 144 seats) have been announced on this route, so in that period, TAP Portugal will offer 14,976 seats.

From the beginning of June to the end of October, the Portuguese national airline between Lisbon and Zagreb will have 17,732 seats on sale throughout the summer season.

TAP Portugal flight schedule between Lisbon and Zagreb:

Lisbon - Zagreb / 08:35 - 12:40 / 3h 05min

Zagreb - Lisbon / 13:25 - 15:50 / 3h 25min

After TAP Portugal resumes traffic on this route on June 2, Zagreb will become the only Croatian airport from which it is possible to fly directly to Lisbon. In the summer of 2020, there were no direct scheduled flights between Lisbon and Croatian airports.

Regarding travel restrictions due to the global pandemic, entry into Portugal is possible with a negative PCR test. The test result must not be older than 72 hours before the start of the trip.

Return tickets in July with departure from Zagreb can currently be purchased for approximately 130 euros, and the airline often offers discounts on its routes. A few weeks ago, the promo price was only 90 euros.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that the Hungarian low-cost airline, Wizz Air, has announced its second route to Dubrovnik Airport. This airline has not operated to Dubrovnik for several years, and a few days ago, it announced its first line from Rome (Fiumicino Airport).

Now, tickets were released yesterday on the Warsaw and Dubrovnik line.

The Warsaw - Dubrovnik - Warsaw line will be in operation from July 3, twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The line will be in operation until mid-September (18.09.), and 23 aircraft operations have been announced.

Wizz Air will offer almost 8,300 seats on this new route between Dubrovnik and Warsaw. In addition to this Hungarian airline, the Polish LOT and the Czech Smartwings still operate between the two mentioned cities.

COVID-19 Testing at Croatian Airports: New Summer Testing Locations at Dubrovnik, Pula, Zadar Airports

May 21, 2021 - The latest regarding COVID-19 testing at Croatian airports as Dubrovnik, Pula, and Zadar should introduce testing locations inside their passenger terminals this summer. 

Two Croatian airports, Split and Zagreb, currently have organized passenger testing for COVID-19. Now, Croatian Aviation reports that Dubrovnik, Pula, and Zadar airports are introducing the same. By the beginning of the summer season, the mentioned airports will also enable airport testing. 

Zagreb Airport in January this year allowed all passengers en route to Amsterdam to test at the airport, which is not surprising given that the regulations of the Netherlands at that time were such that passengers had to have a rapid test no older than 3 hours from entry into the aircraft, so airport testing was almost imperative.

After the Netherlands removed this measure, Zagreb still allowed testing at the airport (PCR or rapid test), and the same is available on the second floor, at two check-in counters on the right side of the passenger terminal.

We remind you that from April 26, COVID-19 testing is also possible near Split Airport; you can check the working hours HERE.

Dubrovnik, Zadar, and Pula airports (the only ones with Split and Zagreb that currently have international traffic) do not offer the possibility of testing at the airport. Still, all three mentioned airports informed Croatian Aviation that the management is preparing testing locations. By the beginning of the summer season, i.e., when several international lines are launched, everything will be ensured that testing (PCR or rapid test) is available in passenger terminals at Pula, Zadar, and Dubrovnik airports.

Testing at airports is part of the "new normal". Logically, the same will be possible in all Croatian airports, with regular international routes announced this summer. Without this possibility, tourist holidays in Croatia this summer are significantly complicated, so this service should be provided at the starting and ending points when visiting the country.

United Airlines Flights to Dubrovnik to Begin Earlier than Planned

May 19, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as United Airlines flights to Dubrovnik will begin a week earlier than initially planned!

Croatian Aviation reports that just a few days after announcing an additional flight (from 3 to 4 flights a week) on the new route between New York and Dubrovnik, United Airlines made another operational change.

On April 18, United Airlines announced that it would introduce the New York-Dubrovnik-New York route in this year's summer flight schedule. The line was originally announced from July 8, three times a week, with departures from New York on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, and return from Dubrovnik a day later, until October 3 this year.

In the meantime, Delta Air Lines also announced the introduction of a direct route to Dubrovnik (also from New York, John F. Kennedy Airport). However, the airline planned to launch the route a week before United and operate on it four times a week, with one flight a week more than United.

United subsequently announced that it would still increase the number of operations to Dubrovnik and thus equalize Delta's number of flights, which happened, and both companies now offer four flights a week to Dubrovnik from July.

"As we start to see a strong desire from our customers to travel internationally to re-opened countries, we are excited to move up service and add a fourth weekly flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia," said Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances at United.  

As of Tuesday, United Airlines is offering a direct flight to Dubrovnik earlier than originally planned. Namely, the inaugural flight was pushed up to a week earlier, and the first plane from New York will take off for Dubrovnik on Thursday, July 1. The earlier launch of this line will provide an additional 1,712 seats between the two cities.

United Airlines Flights to Dubrovnik Increased to 4 Per Week!

May 17, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as United Airlines flights to Dubrovnik have been increased to 4 per week! 

The American airline, United Airlines, is increasing the number of weekly operations on the new route between New York and Dubrovnik Airport!

Less than a month after the announcement they would be introducing a regular flight between New York (Newark Airport) and Dubrovnik, United Airlines will add another weekly flight on this new line in this year's summer flight schedule.

The airline originally announced three flights per week, with departures from New York every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. Now, flights will also be on sale every Friday! The return from Dubrovnik is the next day, i.e. Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, reports Croatian Aviation.

In this way, United will equal the number of operations between New York and Dubrovnik with the number of operations of Delta Air Lines on the same line, and Dubrovnik thus gets the eighth flight a week to New York!

The airline is pleased with the demand on this new route to Dubrovnik and it is almost certain that the aircraft will be sold out this summer. For this reason, an additional flight was launched, departing from New York every Friday.

"As we start to see a strong desire from our customers to travel internationally to re-opened countries, we are excited to move up service and add a fourth weekly flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia," said Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances at United.  

B767-300ER aircraft with a capacity of 214 passengers have been announced for all flights. With new operations on Friday, United will offer an additional 5,564 seats to Dubrovnik.

May 14, 2021 - The latest news for flights to Croatia as Wizz Air flights to Dubrovnik return with the announcement of a Rome summer service, while a new Split-Rome route will operate, too.

Croatian Aviation reports that the well-known Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air will increase the number of aircraft based at Rome's Fiumicino Airport in July and announced two new routes to Croatia. After a long break, Wizz Air is returning to Dubrovnik Airport!

The airline announced on its official website that A321NEO aircraft would be based at Fiumicino Airport. Several routes will be opened to European destinations, including two airports in Croatia - Split and Dubrovnik.

After a long break, Wizz Air returns to Dubrovnik Airport. The line will be in traffic three times a week, from July 1 to October 30, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

With as many as 53 planned rotations, Wizz Air will offer more than 25,000 seats between Dubrovnik and Rome!

From July 2, Wizz Air will introduce the Rome - Split Airport - Rome route, which will also operate three times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, until October 29. On 52 return flights, the airline will offer as many as 24,856 seats between Split and Rome this summer! This is the seventh new Wizz Air line this summer season to Split Airport.

In addition to Wizz Air, two other airlines operate in the summer flight schedule on the routes from Rome to Dubrovnik and Split: Croatia Airlines and the Spanish airline Vueling.

From July, passengers can choose between three airlines to travel to the Italian capital from Split and Dubrovnik airports, on one of the newest aircraft in the fleet of this well-known European low-cost airline.

Air Serbia Flights to Split and Dubrovnik Announced for Summer!

May 10, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Air Serbia flights to Split and Dubrovnik have been announced for the summer, starting May 28! 

Croatian Aviation reports that the Serbian national airline will launch routes to two destinations in Croatia - Split and Dubrovnik from the end of May.

Namely, Air Serbia, the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, will resume its seasonal routes to two destinations in Croatia - Dubrovnik and Split, after the winter break (slightly longer due to the impact of the global pandemic).

As we announced earlier, Air Serbia will not operate on the other three seasonal routes in Croatia this year, to Pula, Rijeka, and Zadar, solely due to reduced demand caused by the global pandemic.

The Belgrade - Dubrovnik Airport - Belgrade line will be in operation from Friday, May 28. Two flights a week have been announced, every Monday and Friday afternoon.

The Belgrade - Split Airport - Belgrade line will also operate from June 28, on the same days as the line to Dubrovnik.

ATR75 and A319 aircraft have been announced on both routes, depending on travel dates and the demand for individual flights. The company currently plans to increase the number of weekly operations on both lines as early as June by introducing a third weekly flight. In the peak summer season, the number of operations should be significantly higher.

Along with Split and Dubrovnik, Air Serbia operates on a year-round route between Belgrade and Zagreb. In June, the company will have five flights a week on this route, every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Ex Yu Aviation reported that Air Serbia recorded its busiest since the pandemic on April 30 (Good Friday for Orthodox Christians), when they carried 5,324 passengers (4,758 on scheduled flights and the remaining 566 on charters).

“This would be an excellent result even before the pandemic”, the airline said.
