ZAGREB, 6 April 2021 – Croatia Airlines has withdrawn from sale 10 international routes from Zagreb on which it operated in the summer of 2019, before the outbreak of the global pandemic, Croatian Aviation reported.
Those withdrawn are international routes from Zagreb that the airline had gradually introduced since the summer of 2016, and on which it operated seasonally in its summer flight schedule.
Most of the routes were in operation from April to October, but certain lines started operations earlier, in March, and continued until December.
It is likely that the airline will not resume traffic on as many as 10 international routes from Zagreb Airport in the upcoming summer flight schedule. The routes are:
Vueling and TAP Portugal should operate on routes from Barcelona and Lisbon, Ryanair will operate to Milan, while Zagreb Airport will not have direct routes to Bucharest, Mostar, Prague, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg.
Only routes from Zagreb to Dublin and Athens are on sale (with a stop in Dubrovnik), but the question is whether Croatia Airlines will withdraw from sale in the coming weeks the route to Dublin, which it briefly introduced around the Easter holidays, Croatian Aviation added.
In the summer flight schedule, the Croatian national airline will continue to operate to a number of European destinations from Zagreb, mainly to major European hubs such as Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
