ZAGREB, 14 October 2020 – Low-cost Hungarian airline Wizz Air will not fly to Split Airport on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast this winter as previously planned, Croatian Aviation reports.
Wizz Air had introduced a new route from Dortmund in Germany to Split, which was originally scheduled to operate in the winter flight schedule this year. That will not happen now
“The Split – Dortmund route started operating on August 1st this year after Wizz Air opened its new base in this German city. Flights to Split operated three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The company originally announced this route as a year-round service, tickets were on sale for the entire winter flight schedule this year, but there will be no flights,” Croatian Aviation said.
Wizz Air will also not operate this winter to airports in the region where there are significantly more flights than to Split, such as Skopje, Tuzla, Belgrade, and a number of other destinations.
Split Airport is the airline’s only destination in Croatia, Wizz Air operates on four international routes to Split in the summer; from Warsaw, Katowice, London, and Dortmund.
Previously, Wizz Air operated to Osijek Airport (Basel – Osijek route), but this route was canceled before the outbreak of the global pandemic.
The airline has not yet announced the summer flight schedule for next year, it remains to be seen whether Wizz Air will introduce new routes to Croatian destinations in the summer of 2021. There are rumours that the airline is interested in introducing flights to Zagreb Airport.
