ITA Airways Flights to Dubrovnik and Split Announced for 2022 Summer

March 7, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as ITA Airways flights to Dubrovnik and Split have been announced in the 2022 summer schedule of the new airline. 

New Italian airline ITA Airways has announced regular operations to Dubrovnik and Split airports, reports Croatian Aviation.

Just as was the case with Alitalia, ITA Airways is announcing two routes to Croatia in the upcoming summer flight schedule - from Rome to Split and Dubrovnik. The planned number of operations is almost identical to that of Alitalia, whose business was continued by ITA Airways.

The only difference is the type of aircraft. Namely, in the last summer seasons, Alitalia used mainly aircraft from the Embraer fleet to Croatia, while ITA Airways plans operations with aircraft from the A320 family, type A319 and A320, with a capacity of 144 to 180 seats.

The line between Split and Rome will run once a week, every Thursday through August, while the line to Dubrovnik will also run once a week through August, every Tuesday.

In addition to ITA Airways, other airlines operate on the route between Split, Dubrovnik, and Rome; Croatia Airlines, Spanish Vueling, and Hungarian Wizz Air.

The chances of ITA Airways appearing at other Croatian airports with scheduled flights are slim, especially after Ryanair introduced a scheduled flight between Zagreb and Rome, where Croatia Airlines already operates.

Tickets for these two routes are on sale on the airline's official website and start at 54 euros one way.

Recall, other new flights were announced to both Dubrovnik and Split airports this month. Namely, Flyr will operate between Oslo and Dubrovnik from June 13 , while Volotea has launched a new route between Lille and Split Airport, connecting the two cities from May 8 until October 9 this year.

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.
