September 7, 2020 - The latest news for flights to Croatia as Wizz Air stops traffic on three lines to Split, and British Airways makes its last rotation to Zagreb and Pula from Heathrow.

Croatian Aviation reports that Hungarian Wizz Air has made some changes in its flight schedule for September as there will be a disruption of traffic on three routes to Split Airport.

This well-known low-cost company operates only to Split Airport, seasonally, in the summer flight schedule. Despite the pandemic, Wizz Air resumed traffic from Split to four destinations, one more than the previous year. This year, the company introduced a completely new line - Dortmund - Split.

In addition to Dortmund, Wizz Air offers direct flights from Split to London (Luton Airport), Warsaw, and Katowice. These three lines will stop operating this month.

The Split - Warsaw line is currently operating three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The last flight on this line has been announced for Saturday, September 19.

The Split - Katowice line also operates three times a week, on the same days as the line from Warsaw, and the last flight is announced for Saturday, September 19.

The Split - London Luton line operates twice a week, every Monday and Friday. This line will be in traffic for slightly longer. The last flight will be on Monday, September 28. 

A completely new route, Split - Dortmund, is announced as a year-round line, and Wizz Air offers flights through the entire winter flight schedule three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Regular traffic in the winter months will depend on demand and restrictive measures.

Furthermore, British Airways made its last rotation on the London Heathrow - Zagreb - London Heathrow yesterday and finished traffic to Pula Airport. 

As was announced on August 25, British Airways decided to stop traffic on three of its four routes from London (Heathrow Airport) to Croatia.

The London Heathrow - Pula line has been in operation since August 1 with two flights a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays). British Airways planned to keep this route active throughout September, but the reintroduction of restrictions by the UK on passengers from Croatia forced the company to suspend traffic earlier. On Saturday, September 5, the last flight was made after only a month of regular operations, with a nine-year-old A320 aircraft (reg. Marked G-EUYL). British Airways plans to return to Pula in the spring of next year.

The London Heathrow - Zagreb line operated 3 times a week in July and 5 times a week in August. The company completely suspended sales on this line three weeks ago, and as of Monday, September 7, there are no more direct flights.

British Airways has been offering flights on the London - Zagreb route from October 1, with as many as 11 flights available per week. The fact is that this is a British Airways flight schedule planned even before the outbreak of the pandemic, and the company has not considered those flights so far. Operational changes (cancellations) for flights from October 1 can be expected in mid-September, and, certainly, this company will not fly 11 times a week to Zagreb.

If British Airways decided to stop traffic on this line now, in early September, there will likely be no flights either in October or in the other winter months. On the flight from Zagreb, there were 113 passengers (LF 70%).

Croatia Airlines also operates on the London-Zagreb route, which reduced the number of flights in September. 

The London Heathrow - Split line will remain in service until September 26.
