Flights to Croatia: SunClass Airlines and Volotea Announce New Lines to Split

November 3, 2019 - The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Split.

Avio Radar reports that Spanish low-cost carrier Volotea launched many new lines in its 2020 flight schedule, which includes something new for Split. 

Namely, in a short time, Volotea has added a fourth new line in their offer to Croatia next year, which includes a trip between Italy and Split. 

Thus, the Bari-Split line will circulate once a week, on Wednesdays, only in the heart of the season, i.e., from July 8 to August 26.  This will be the third line from Italy to Split next year, with existing lines from Palermo and Venice. Earlier this year, the first line from Greece to Split was announced from Athens. The Boeing 717-200 aircraft is expected to run on this line. 

Recall, Avio Radar reported earlier Volotea also strengthened three flights from France to Split in its 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, flights from Lyon, Nantes, and Toulouse will fly to Split three times a week next year - on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays in the peak season. On the other hand, the Marseille-Split route, which only ran three flights a week, was reduced to two flights per week. 

Furthermore, Avio Radar reports that SunClass Airlines is the new name of the Danish airline Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia. The Scandinavian branch of Thomas Cook resumed traffic after a one-day hiatus about a month ago, when its parent British airline Thomas Cook Airlines collapsed in September. The new business owner has now changed its name to SunClass Airlines and will keep Thomas Cook’s yellow heart logo.

Thus, a new line for Croatia in the 2020 summer flight schedule has been announced. Namely, the Copenhagen-Split line will operate once a week on Fridays from May 29 to September 25. SunClass Airlines will continue working on this year’s Thomas Cook routes between Gothenburg-Split, also once a week on Fridays, and between Helsinki-Split, which will also run once a week, but on Wednesdays. Tickets are on sale through the Scandinavian agencies Spies, Tjareborg, and Ving.

An Airbus type A321 aircraft was announced on all lines. Currently, the fleet consists of 8 Airbus A321 aircraft and four larger Airbus A330 aircraft.

Flights to Croatia: Volotea from Palermo to Dubrovnik, TUI from Brussels to Pula

October 26, 2019 - The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Dubrovnik and Pula.

Avio Radar reports that Spanish low-cost carrier Volotea announced yet another new route to Croatia in their 2020 summer flight schedule, this time from Sicily to Dubrovnik. The new Palermo-Dubrovnik line will operate once a week, on Wednesdays, from July 8 to August 26, 2020. A Boeing 717 aircraft is expected to service this line. 

At the same time, the Dubrovnik-Bari line has been strengthened. In addition to one flight per week on Wednesdays, Volotea will add another trip in the heart of the season on Mondays. On the other hand, both routes from Bergamo to Croatia will no longer operate next year. These are the flights to Dubrovnik and Split. 

Recall, Avio Radar reported earlier this week that Volotea announced a new flight from France to Dubrovnik in their 2020 flight schedule. The new Toulouse-Dubrovnik route will begin operations from April 4, 2020, with two flights a week - on Wednesdays and Sundays. The end of the seasonal service is currently unknown, as tickets are on sale until the end of August. An Airbus A319 aircraft will fly on this route. 

This route will take the place of German carrier Germania, which filed for bankruptcy in February this year. Germania flew only once a week between Toulouse and Dubrovnik on Sundays. 

Volotea also strengthened three flights from France to Split in its 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, flights from Lyon, Nantes, and Toulouse will fly to Split three times a week next year - on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays in the peak season. On the other hand, the Marseille-Split route, which only ran three flights a week, was reduced to two flights per week. 

Volotea will reduce traffic to destinations in the northern Adriatic for the 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, only the Nantes-Pula route will remain with flights once a week, on Thursdays. This year’s new Bordeaux-Pula line is no longer on offer for 2020. Rijeka received its first Volotea line this year between Marseille and Rijeka, though it will not operate next year. 

Avio Radar also reports that TUI Airlines Belgium has announced a new route between Brussels and Pula in its 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, this line will begin operations from April 25, 2020, with two flights a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will serve this line. 

Two more trips will be offered next year - from Brussels to Dubrovnik on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and Antwerp to Split on Mondays and Fridays.

Volotea also strengthened three flights from France to Split in its 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, flights from Lyon, Nantes, and Toulouse will fly to Split three times a week next year - on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays in the peak season. On the other hand, the Marseille-Split route, which only ran three flights a week, was reduced to two flights per week. 

Volotea will reduce traffic to destinations in the northern Adriatic for the 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, only the Nantes-Pula route will remain with flights once a week, on Thursdays.

Flights to Croatia: Volotea from Athens to Split, Transavia to Pula in 2020

October 11, 2019 - The latest news from around Croatia’s airports for new flights to Croatia with updates from Split and Pula.

Following Thursday’s announcement that Air Transat is looking to increase their Croatian operations to Split and Dubrovnik, Avio Radar revealed on Friday that Spanish low-cost airline Volotea will run a seasonal service between Athens and Split as part of their 2020 summer flight schedule. 

Thus, Volotea will operate two flights per week between the two cities, on Wednesdays and Sundays, beginning April 19. This seasonal service will compete against Aegean Airlines and Croatia Airlines, both Star Alliance members, who already operate this line. 

Recall, the Dubrovnik-Athens service began operating this year, too. However, next year, the service will begin two weeks earlier, from April 11. The airline will run two flights per week in the preseason, on Wednesdays and Saturdays as they did this year, and from June, they’ll increase frequencies to three flights per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. This year, Volotea only ran three flights per week in August. 

A Boeing 717-200 aircraft will operate on both lines. 

Avio Radar also reports that low-cost carrier Transavia has announced a new flight for Croatia in their 2020 summer flight schedule. Namely, the airline will connect Paris (Orly Airport) and Pula. The new route will begin on April 4, 2020, and run once a week - on Saturdays. The airline will increase frequencies to two flights a week from May until the end of September on Tuesdays and Saturdays. During the heart of the season, in July and August, Transavia will boost operations to three flights per week, with the additional trip on Thursdays. 

A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will fly on this line.

Furthermore, Split Airport handled its three-millionth passenger on Friday, October 4, which is the second time in the 53-year-history of the airport. The lucky passenger arrived on a Croatia Airlines flight from Frankfurt. Split Airport achieved this milestone 21 days earlier than last year.
