ZAGREB, 4 July, 2021 - Rijeka Airport, which is located on Krk island, said on Sunday that Lufthansa was returning with flights to Munich and Frankfurt, that almost all Eurowings flights had been reinstated, and that three new Polish destinations had been arranged with LOT.

"In turnover terms, the first Saturday in July, with nine regular daily international flights, looked like those in the times before the COVID-19 pandemic," the airport said.

The German national airline is returning to Rijeka Airport after two years with two flights on Sunday - one to Munich, which was introduced in 2019, and a new one to Frankfurt, the airport said, adding that both flights would operate until October.
