Currently No Regular International Winter Flights to Dubrovnik Airport

January 17, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as there are currently no international winter flights to Dubrovnik Airport 

Dubrovnik Airport ended 2021 as the third busiest Croatian airport after Split and Zagreb. As things currently stand, the beginning of 2022 did not bring new regular international routes to Dubrovnik, but the airport instead was temporarily left without its regular international Turkish Airlines and Vueling lines, reports Croatian Aviation.

According to earlier announcements and the Dubrovnik Airport winter flight schedule, Turkish Airlines and Vueling aircraft were to fly from Istanbul and Barcelona to Dubrovnik until the end of the winter flight schedule.

According to the earliest announcements, Turkish Airlines was supposed to operate up to four times a week in Dubrovnik this winter, but the flight schedule was quickly revised by the airline. The last recorded Turkish Airlines flight on a regular route to Dubrovnik was recorded on January 8.

According to the earliest announcements, Vueling was supposed to operate twice a week this winter in certain periods, i.e., on Thursdays and Sundays, but Vueling made its last recorded flight between Barcelona and Dubrovnik on January 9.

According to available information, the first available date to purchase Turkish Airlines tickets from Dubrovnik to Istanbul is Saturday, January 22. From January 22 to March 26, Turkish should continue to operate to Dubrovnik Airport twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Vueling's return to Dubrovnik is expected on March 3, when the Spanish low-cost airline should continue to fly to Dubrovnik twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.

From January 9 to January 22, there was no international air traffic at Dubrovnik Airport, and Dubrovnik is connected to international destinations by Croatia Airlines planes, but with a transfer at Zagreb Airport.

Although 2022 may not have started with many scheduled international flights at Dubrovnik Airport, Croatian Aviation concludes that we can certainly be pleased that a significantly larger number of international flights from Dubrovnik are already announced for the summer flight schedule.
