Ryanair Croatia Anniversary Sees Praise for Irish Budget Carrier

June the 4th, 2022 - The Ryanair Croatia anniversary took place recently, which recognised and marked the first anniversary of the opening of this popular Irish airline's routes from the Croatian capital.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Darko Bicak writes, the largest European airline currently in operation, and as they themselves point out, the largest airline in all of Croatia, the low-budget Irish Ryanair, has been celebrating the anniversary of the launch of its Zagreb operations.

The company emphasised that, along with a total of 27 routes heading to various European cities from Zagreb Airport, they have good reservations in their largest summer flight schedule for Zadar.

Ryanair's three Zagreb aircraft represent a massive 300 million US dollar investment, which will support more than 90 high-paying aviation jobs and more than 1,000 total jobs in Zagreb itself.

Ryanair's sales and marketing manager for CEE & the Balkans, Olga Pawlonka, said that Ryanair will operate (from Zagreb alone) almost 80 weekly flights throughout the summer of 2022, 30 more than last year, to provide Zagreb's customers with a wide choice of European destinations to head to, such as London, Milan, Paris, or popular destinations for holidays (Brindisi, Corfu and Malaga), giving an extremely welcome boost to Zagreb tourism after two consecutive years more or less entirely lost to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ryanair pointed out that their customers in Zagreb can plan an escape at the lowest prices of a mere 159 kuna (19.99 euros) one way until October 2022.

As Tadej Notersberg, CEO of Lauda Europe, a company that is part of Rynair with its branded fleet of 29 Airbus 320 aircraft, recently pointed out; in addition to Zadar and Zagreb, their aircraft are based in Vienna, London Stantsed and Palma de Mallorca (Spain). The global coronavirus crisis severely disrupted air traffic across all of Europe for two years, but with the lifting of epidemiological restrictions in most countries, they are now finally returning to previous levels.

"We're satisfied with the way business in Croatia has been going so far, and the forecasts speak of further growth. That's why we're increasing the fleet, the number of flights and the amount of routes,'' concluded Nottersberg on this Ryanair Croatia anniversary.

Ryanair Zagreb Flight Reductions Extended into Mid-July

June 3, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Ryanair Zagreb flight reductions continue into the middle of next month. 

Several Ryanair Zagreb destinations will see further reductions and temporary route suspensions into mid-July, reports Ex Yu Aviation

Passengers already witnessed reductions in May, and while the airline was to conclude the network cutbacks in June, it is now extending the suspension of some of its Zagreb lines into next month - namely to Basel, Sofia, and Brindisi until July 18. 

Ex Yu Aviation adds that Sandefjord, Malaga, and Paphos flights will only run once a week until mid-July and that reductions on the lines to Bergamo, Charleroi, Hahn, Gothenburg, Malmo, Malta, Memmingen, and Weeze will also be extended. Furthermore, the Corfu line will not run until the beginning of July and will operate just one flight a week. This line was supposed to launch in June. 

But this is no surprise. Recall that in January, 16 Ryanair Zagreb flights were temporarily suspended because of reduced demand due to the pandemic. This is now the fifth month this year that Ryanair has either temporarily suspended or reduced its Zagreb flights.

Thus, in June, Ryanair reduced its capacity in Zagreb by 35,000. This time, however, the Irish low-cost airline has not provided an explanation for its decision. Ex Yu Aviation writes that staffing issues and lack of equipment could carry some of the blame. The airline has two aircraft based in Zagreb when there were plans to have three. 

But Zagreb isn't the only city affected. The low-cost airline has delayed many new routes from the Zadar base, too. Namely, the Helsinki, Turin, and Bournemouth routes will be pushed back by another two weeks. These lines had already been delayed until the beginning of June. Ryanair will however bring much-needed traffic to Zadar Airport this summer, operating 120 flights to 46 destinations!

Several Ryanair Zagreb Flights Canceled in May and June

April 14, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as several Ryanair Zagreb flights have been canceled in May and June, with passengers informed in the last 24 hours. 

In the last 24 hours, Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has informed passengers about the cancellation of a number of flights on regular flights to and from Zagreb International Airport, reports Croatian Aviation

Namely, Ryanair has canceled several flights on international routes to and from Zagreb Airport for May and June this year.

From Zagreb to:

Brussels Charleroi - two flights a week instead of five in May,

Sofia - all flights canceled in June,

Paphos - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Dusseldorf Weeze - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Frankfurt Hahn - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Karlsruhe - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Memmingen - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Corfu - all flights canceled in May and June,

Dublin - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Brindisi - all flights canceled in May and June,

Milan Bergamo - canceled flights on Sundays in May,

Rome - two flights a week instead of four in May,

Malta - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Gothenburg - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Malmö - two flights a week instead of three in May,

Basel - all flights canceled in May and June,

London - four flights a week instead of seven in May.

On most routes, certain weekly rotations were canceled, and the airline cited commercial terms in the passenger notice. Namely, Ryanair has been selling very cheap tickets on these routes for months, from 5 to 10 euros one way, and now it is canceling those flights and offering passengers the possibility of vouchers or changing travel dates.

Croatian Aviation adds that the same thing happened earlier with the route to Milan. The airline then returned the flights to sale a few days later, but at much higher prices, so it should not be surprising if this is what happens on most of the above routes. Due to the early announcement, passengers are not entitled to compensation in accordance with EU regulations 261, and the airline leaves room for additional earnings by reselling the now canceled flights.

26 Ryanair Zagreb Flights in May, Over 120,000 Seats Available

April 11, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as 26 Ryanair Zagreb flights in May bring more than 120,000 seats to and from the Croatian capital. 

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has defined its flight schedule for May, in which it will offer more than 120,000 available seats to and from Zagreb International Airport, reports Croatian Aviation

Namely, Ryanair is celebrating its first anniversary since opening the base in Zagreb, and in May it will operate 26 regular international routes and offer more than 120,000 available seats to and from the Croatian capital. 

From Zagreb to:

London Stansted - 11,160

Milan Bergamo - 8,056

Brussels Charleroi - 7,920

Rome Fiumicino - 6,480

Basel - 5,040

Dublin - 5,040

Bratislava - 4,914

Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden - 4,914

Memmingen - 4,914

Gothenburg - 4,914

Frankfurt Hahn - 4,914

Malta - 4,816

Malmo - 4,680

Dusseldorf Weeze - 4,680

Paphos - 4,680

Brindisi - 3,240

Paris Beauvais - 3,240

Dortmund - 3,240

Eindhoven - 3,240

Manchester - 3,240

Naples - 3,240

Thessaloniki - 3,240

Sofia - 3,240

Podgorica - 3,240

Malaga - 2,880

Oslo Torp - 2,880.

A320 aircraft based at Zagreb Airport with a capacity of 180 seats have been announced on all routes. The only exceptions are the line to Bratislava, where B737-800 aircraft have been announced, and the route to Malta and Begam, where B737 MAX aircraft will also operate.

The largest number of seats is available to London, which is solely due to daily flights between Zagreb and this city, while the smallest number of seats is available to Malaga and Oslo, given that these routes operate twice a week.

Still unofficially, Ryanair and Zagreb Airport are working intensively on basing the fourth aircraft of this carrier in the Croatian capital, which would increase the number of routes but also increase the number of rotations on existing ones. It is likely that this will happen as early as this summer season.

Zagreb International Airport welcomed 196,280 passengers through Croatia's main airport last month, or 152,549 more than in the same month last year. The result from March 2021 (as well as from 2020) is not comparable with the figures from the previous month, primarily because of the pandemic.

Nevertheless, with this good result, Zagreb is approaching the figures from the pre-crisis year of 2019, when 232,978 passengers were recorded in March.

Ryanair Rijeka Flights Canceled, Passengers Stranded at Airport

April 4, 2022 - Ryanair Rijeka flights were canceled on Sunday without any e-mail notification or other possibilities for passengers at Rijeka Airport. A look into what happened. 

On Sunday, Rijeka Airport announced three Ryanair return flights from Charleroi, London, and Stockholm. However,  only the plane from Stockholm landed and took off from Rijeka airport, and the other two flights were canceled, reports Croatian Aviation.

Due to the strong wind in Rijeka on Sunday morning, flights to London and Brussels were canceled, which in itself would not be news if the problem did not arise in communication between the airline and passengers.

Namely, several passengers who were supposed to travel from Rijeka to Charleroi Airport saw that their flight was canceled. And due to the strong wind at Rijeka Airport, the Ryanair plane landed at Pula Airport instead of Krk.

At 11 am, the plane took off from Pula for Rijeka, where it was supposed to land, pick up passengers for Brussels and, with a two-hour delay, bring them to their destination in Belgium. As the wind did not calm down, the plane flew back to Charleroi without the Rijeka passengers.

About 30 passengers awaited the arrival of the plane at Rijeka Airport, and according to information from the airport, they were informed that, in the worst case, if the plane fails to reach Rijeka, they will be transported by bus to Pula and go to their planned destination from there. In the end, neither happened - Rijeka passengers did not go to Pula, and Ryanair's plane eventually failed to land in Rijeka.

Only a little later, the same story happened with the Ryanair flight between London and Rijeka. Due to the wind, the plane diverted to Pula and then took off from Pula to Stansted Airport without the passengers in Rijeka.

According to EU Regulation 261/2004, in case of flight cancellation due to bad weather conditions, passengers are not entitled to compensation but have the right to care, refund, and be redirected under similar conditions to the earliest flight to the planned destination. As Ryanair's next flight from Rijeka to Charleroi is only on April 7, passengers will probably make their trip from nearby airports, Zagreb and Zadar, from where Ryanair also operates to the airport.

However, the passengers did not receive any notification via e-mail about the flight cancellation and other possibilities, or that an additional flight from Rijeka was mentioned on Monday to transport passengers to their destinations, which was an information error.

As all this happened due to force majeure. Ryanair made the best option for itself as an airline - it canceled flights for which it knows it will not have to pay a fee of 250 euros per passenger and offered passengers the next direct flight, which is a business move. Passengers could still be transported from Rijeka by bus to Pula, from where they would travel to their destinations on the same day with a certain delay, but Ryanair did not do so due to additional costs, and above all not to jeopardize the implementation of its other scheduled flights on Sunday with just those planes.

Over 2 Million Croatia Airlines and Ryanair Seats in Zagreb Airport Summer Flight Schedule

March 30, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Croatia Airlines and Ryanair offer over 2 million seats in the Zagreb Airport summer flight schedule this year.

Croatian Aviation reports the details of this year's summer flight schedule from Zagreb, the exact number of available seats on all routes (ad-hoc charter and scheduled flights) of the two airlines that offer the largest number of seats and generate the most passengers at Zagreb International Airport.

Namely, Croatian Aviation has listed all the operations of Croatia Airlines and Ryanair on the day announced for this year's summer flight schedule (from March 27 to October 29 this year). 

Croatia Airlines operates on a number of international and domestic routes in this year's summer flight schedule, which Croatian Aviation will analyze in detail by month.

In the mentioned period, the Croatian national airline is planning 559 return flights with A320 aircraft, 1866 return flights with A319 aircraft, and 3139 return flights with DashQ400 aircraft. A total of 1,209,068 seats are currently available from or to Zagreb on all Croatia Airlines flights. 

Ryanair is announcing a slightly smaller number of flights. In the same period, 2219 return flights with A320 aircraft, 104 return flights with B737-800 aircraft, and 51 return flights with 737 MAX 200 aircraft are planned. A total of 858,552 seats are currently available from or to Zagreb on all flights Ryanair.

Croatia Airlines is currently the largest airline at Zagreb Airport in terms of the number of seats, offering 350,516 more seats than the other Ryanair during the mentioned period.

According to current announcements, these two airlines have a total of 2,067,620 seats from and to Zagreb Airport, respectively.

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that Finnair has announced a regular seasonal route between Helsinki and Zagreb which will operate from May to the end of September this year.

After Finnair announced that it would not resume traffic to Ljubljana this summer, due to the negative impact of the war in Ukraine on air traffic in that part of Europe, there were fears that Finnair would cancel the announced route to Zagreb, too. 

However, Croatian Aviation learned that this will not happen. Finnair plans to operate the first flight between Helsinki and Zagreb on May 1 this year, and by the end of September (September 29) to operate a total of 66 return flights between the two cities.

Finnair will operate on this route three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and for now, only A319 aircraft with a capacity of 144 passengers have been announced. Earlier, Embraer E190 aircraft were also planned for these flights. 

This summer, Finnair will offer a total of 19,008 seats between Helsinki and Zagreb, and will also operate to Dubrovnik and Split.

Finnair will operate to Dubrovnik from April 1, and to Split from April 20 this year.

New Ryanair Zagreb-Brindisi Line Announced for 2022 Summer

March 12, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as a new Ryanair Zagreb-Brindisi line has been announced to replace the recently canceled Lviv-Zagreb line.

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair introduces a new route from Zagreb International Airport in just over two weeks! Namely, Ryanair will introduce a regular route between Zagreb and Brindisi on March 27, the airline's fourth route from Zagreb to Italy, reports Croatian Aviation.

The line will be in operation from the beginning of the summer flight schedule, March 27, twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, until the end of October, i.e., October 26, 2022.

A total of 22,320 seats are on sale, and tickets start at 10 euros one way. This is a line that will be in traffic in the afternoon and evening, and an A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 seats in the passenger cabin has been announced.

The new line will replace the previously announced Lviv-Zagreb line, which was canceled due to the war in Ukraine.

Ryanair announced the Lviv-Zagreb line in mid-January this year and had plans to operate on it from the very beginning of the summer flight schedule - on March 27. Fights were planned twice a week, every Wednesday and Sunday.

The Irish airline closed sales on all routes from Lviv, including the announced route to Zagreb. A total of 22,320 seats were on sale, and Lviv was to be the second city in Ukraine with which Zagreb was to have a direct connection. Ryanair has announced its return to Ukrainian airports as soon as security conditions allow.

In addition to Brindisi, Ryanair from Zagreb operates to Rome Fiumicino, Bergamo, and Naples. Ryanair is also introducing new lines from Zagreb to Bratislava and Corfu this summer. 

“There are some tourist destinations from Zagreb that can be served in the future and that are of interest to us too. We really believe that Zagreb can be attractive all-year-round, not just for families and the diaspora, but for tourists as well, so we want to use all these opportunities in the future," Tadej Notersberg, Director of Operations of Ryanair’s subsidiary Lauda Europe, told EX-YU Aviation last week.

4 Ryanair Pula Summer Flights Announced, Brussels Airlines Returns to Zadar

March 10, 2022 - The latest flight news to Croatia as four Ryanair Pula summer flights have been announced, and Brussels Airlines returns to Zadar Airport.

The first line to London (Stansted Airport) will run from March 27, twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays. From June 2, the third weekly flight is added, on Tuesdays, with this flight schedule remaining in force until the end of September. Two-weekly flights have been re-announced for October, with the last Ryanair flight to London on October 27.

The very next day, March 28, the line for Brussels Charleroi will start operating, with Ryanair announcing three weekly flights, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, until October 28. B737-800 aircraft have also been announced on this route, with a total of 35,154 seats between Charleroi and Pula.

From June 1, the new Ryanair line between Pula and Vienna will start operating twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, until September 28. A320 aircraft have been announced on this route.

On June 3, the last, fourth line to Pula, from Poznan, Poland, will start operating. Flights have also been announced twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, until September 30. Between Pula, Poznan, and Vienna, the Irish airline is offering a total of 25,200 seats this summer.

Belgian airline Brussels Airlines is introducing a scheduled flight between Brussels and Zadar in the upcoming summer flight schedule, reports Croatian Aviation.

The seasonal route between Zadar and Brussels was introduced by the Belgian national airline in the 2018 summer flight schedule, but the line was not in operation during the last two seasons due to the pandemic.

Although it did not announce the line in its initial summer announcement, Brussels Airlines subsequently released tickets for this line, which will start operating on May 7.

The flights will run once a week, every Saturday, and are currently scheduled until the end of the summer flight schedule (October 29). The A319 aircraft with a capacity of 141 seats will operate on the route. 

With the return of Brussels Airlines to Zadar Airport, Zagreb Airport remains the only destination in the country to which this airline has not returned after the lockdown in Europe. Zadar Airport, in addition to the Brussels Airlines line, also has a flight to Charleroi in the summer schedule, operated by Ryanair.
