ZAGREB, 5 March 2021 – Aer Lingus, the flag carrier airline of Ireland, has announced its planned return to three Croatian airports.
Aer Lingus did not fly to Dubrovnik or Pula during the disrupted 2020 season and only operated a short service to Split.
According to aviation portal Croatian Aviation, Aer Lingus plans to return to all three destinations during its summer flight schedule. This will depend of course on developments and any new restrictive measures between Ireland and Croatia.
From May 1, the airline plans to operate again its Dublin – Pula – Dublin service. The route is scheduled to operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, until September 28th. An A320 aircraft has been announced for the route.
From March 30, the Dublin – Dubrovnik – Dublin service is set to restart, but it is to be expected that the airline will start operating this route also from May. From May to the end of September, as many as 5 flights a week have been announced, every day except Tuesday and Thursday, also with an A320 aircraft.
In October, the company will reduce the number of rotations to three weekly flights.
All going well, Aer Lingus will operate its Dublin – Split – Dublin service from May 1 to October 1 with two weeks of flights every Tuesday and Thursday. This is also the only line on which Aer Lingus operated last year, after the lockdown was lifted in European countries.
At the beginning of May, the airline will also commence its Cork – Dubrovnik – Cork service, but it should be noted that there is a great possibility that flights will be withdrawn from sale and that this line will not be in operation in the summer season 2021, Croatian Aviation reported.
