ZAGREB, 28 July 2020 – Spanish national carrier Iberia will not resume flights from Madrid to Zagreb, Zadar and Split in this summer season, Croatian Aviation reports.
Iberia started flying to Zadar from Madrid last summer with two weekly flights. The route was only introduced last year but this summer, due to the pandemic situation and low-demand, the airline will not operate regular flights on this route.
Iberia’s only year-round route to Croatia was to the capital Zagreb, and the airline is also not planning to resume flights on its Madrid – Zagreb service either.
Currently, Iberia is selling one weekly flight (every Friday) in the winter timetable, but those flights will, most likely, be canceled as well, which means that there will be no direct flights between the Spanish and Croatian capitals.
The only route to Croatia which is now operating is between Madrid and Dubrovnik, the route will continue to operate through August as well. The airline will add two more flights for a total of 5 per week (every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
Last year, there were 15 weekly flights during the peak of the summer season.
