Transavia Flights to Split Resume Mid-April!

April 8, 2021 - The latest flight news to Croatia as Transavia flights to Split resume in mid-April! 

Croatian Aviation reports that well-known low-cost airline Transavia plans to resume traffic to Split Airport from mid-April.

The Dutch low-cost airline, a subsidiary of KLM and Air France, will renew only one route to Croatia in April.

Although the company normally operates on as many as 10 international routes to as many as five Croatian airports (Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik), the company will resume traffic on only one route in the middle of this month.

Namely, the Paris - Split - Paris (Orly Airport) will operate from April 16 with two flights a week, every Friday and Sunday.

All other lines to Croatia have been postponed for the middle, and most even for the end of May:

  • Rotterdam - Split,
  • Nantes - Dubrovnik,
  • Pariz - Dubrovnik,
  • Rotterdam - Dubrovnik,
  • Eindhoven - Rijeka,
  • Pariz - Zadar,
  • Rotterdam - Zadar,
  • Pariz - Pula,
  • Rotterdam - Pula

Transavia plans to operate on all of these lines in the high season but reduced compared to the number of operations the company had in 2019 before the global pandemic.

Paris and Split will be connected by a direct line again from mid-April. There have been no direct flights between the two cities since the end of October last year, i.e., the end of the summer flight schedule. Orly Airport is a little less than 20 kilometers from the center of Paris. The journey on this route usually takes a little less than 60 minutes.

In addition to Transavia, there should be other airlines between Paris and Split in the peak of the summer season; Air France, Croatia Airlines, and EasyJet.

Split Airport, along with Zagreb, is the only airport in Croatia to which several foreign carriers are returning in April. The traffic is still modest, but according to the announcements, that should change as early as May. According to the mentioned announcements, Split Airport should have a significantly higher number of aircraft operations on regular routes this season than in the summer of 2020, when Split, along with Zagreb, had a significant number of passengers in the crisis, pandemic year.

Flights to Croatia: Vueling Returns to Dubrovnik in January, Transavia Completes Services to Croatia

October 30, 2020 - The latest news for flights to Croatia as Vueling returns to Dubrovnik in January, and Transavia completes services to Split and Dubrovnik for this year. 

Croatian Aviation reports that Spanish low-cost airline Vueling plans to return to Dubrovnik Airport in January 2021.

At the end of the summer flight schedule, the company suspended traffic to all Croatian airports, and Dubrovnik is currently the only planned destination in Croatia in the winter months.

This summer, Vueling flew to Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik, with reduced flights compared to last year's summer flight schedule.

Vueling plans to re-establish the Barcelona-Dubrovnik line starting in 2021. Regular flights between the two cities are currently announced from Sunday, January 3, 2021, twice a week, every Thursday and Sunday.

The line should operate until the end of the winter flight schedule (March 28, 2021) with the above two flights per week, and for the summer flight schedule next year, the company currently has daily flights on this line.

The realization of these flights will primarily depend on the global situation with COVID-19, which directly affects the demand itself, so Vueling will cancel the announced flights in case of commercial unprofitability. 

Vueling announced flights to four Croatian airports for the next summer season; Zagreb, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik, but we will know more about the summer flight schedule later, as it is too early to conclude so many months in advance, especially in these uncertain times.

Vueling's intention to operate on the Barcelona-Dubrovnik route in the winter flight schedule is certainly positive news, but the question remains: Will there be demand?

Furthermore, Croatian Aviation reports that low-cost Dutch airline Transavia, a subsidiary of the world's oldest airline, KLM, and also a member of the Air France - KLM group, will perform the last flights to Croatian airports for this year this weekend. 

Transavia had reduced traffic to Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik this summer, connecting five Croatian airports with destinations in France and the Netherlands, despite reduced demand.

The company cut traffic to Rijeka, Pula, and Zadar in September, and Transavia operated only to Split and Dubrovnik in October with a relatively small number of weekly flights.

The Split - Paris Orly line operated 2 to 3 times a week in October, and on Friday, October 30, the company will perform the last flight to Split on the line from Orly.

In Dubrovnik, Transavia had two active lines this month, from Nantes and Paris. These two lines will end with traffic for this year, a day later compared to Split, on Saturday, October 31. 

In October, two routes from France to Dubrovnik operated with a minimum weekly frequency, only once a week, on Saturdays. Still, all routes were operated by B737-800 aircraft with a capacity of as many as 189 seats in the carrier's fleet.

Transavia will no longer have regular operations at Croatian airports after the last weekend in October, and re-establishing numerous seasonal routes is expected in mid-April next year. This low-cost carrier has not operated to Croatian airports in winter before, and Transavia will not operate to neighboring airports (Ljubljana and Belgrade) in the winter months.
