British Airways has constantly delayed the start of routes from London (Heathrow Airport) to its destinations in Croatia – Dubrovnik, Split, Zagreb and Pula.
After several months of delays, British Airways resumed traffic to Split on June 25, and soon will operate to Zagreb and Dubrovnik again.
London – Split – London
British Airways currently operates once a week, on Fridays, and from July 5, the airline will add a second weekly flight, on Mondays. From July 10, four flights a week have been announced, departures on Saturdays and Sundays are added, and from mid-July, daily flights on this route have been announced.
London – Zagreb – London
This route will start on June 30 with four weekly flights, every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. From July 21, the airline is offering daily flights but it is likely that certain departures will be canceled.
In addition to British Airways’ four flights a week, Croatia Airlines also offers three flights a week to Heathrow, so 7 flights a week will be available between the two cities.
London – Dubrovnik – London
The return of this service has been announced for July 1st. From the first day of July, British Airways will operate 3 times a week to Dubrovnik, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. From July 6, the fourth weekly flight is added on Tuesdays, and from July 11, the flight on Sundays, so the British will operate 5 times a week until mid-July to Dubrovnik.
London – Pula – London
From July 20 British Airways is set to fly between Pula and London twice weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Given that restrictive travel measures between the UK and Croatia are still active, it is not surprising that British Airways has constantly delayed the start of operations on routes to Croatia, but transfer passengers are generally not subject to these measures, Croatian Aviation said.
With the easing of measures in the UK, it is to be expected that British Airways will further increase the number of operations towards Croatian airports, and especially towards Split and Dubrovnik, two important holiday destinations for British tourists in Croatia.
