German national airline, Lufthansa, has announced over 40 weekly flights to Croatian airports after resuming traffic to a number of airports in the country.
Lufthansa first resumed traffic to Zagreb airport, followed by Split and Dubrovnik, and in May to Zadar and Pula. As Croatian Aviation reports, the airline will significantly increase the number of operations to Croatian airports in the second half of June.
By the end of June, Lufthansa will continue to connect Munich and Frankfurt, its two most important hubs, with five Croatian airports: Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Pula.
Frankfurt – Zagreb – Frankfurt
On the route between Frankfurt and Zagreb, Lufthansa will continue to operate according to the current schedule until the end of June, 10 times a week. Two daily flights were announced on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, while one flight was announced on other days of the week. Before the outbreak of the global pandemic, Lufthansa operated on this route 14 times a week or twice a day.
Flights to Split
Lufthansa has two routes to Split Airport, from Munich and Frankfurt. The Frankfurt – Split – Frankfurt service will continue three times a week in June; on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, while more operations are expected in July.
Munich – Split – Munich currently operates 6 times a week, every day except Monday, but from June 21 the company will offer direct flights daily.
More flights to Dubrovnik
From mid-June, Dubrovnik will have several weekly flights to Frankfurt and Munich. The Lufthansa line from Frankfurt currently operates 5 times a week, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. From June 21, daily flights are announced.
The Munich – Dubrovnik – Munich service currently has 7 weekly rotations, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays and two flights on Saturdays. As of June 22, an additional rotation is announced on Tuesdays, so Lufthansa will operate between the two cities as many as 8 times a week.
Lufthansa flights to Rijeka from July
Lufthansa has postponed the start of traffic to Rijeka Airport. Although the routes were originally announced from May and then postponed to June, with additional changes the company canceled all flights until the beginning of July. From Saturday, July 3, Lufthansa will operate on routes from Frankfurt and Munich to Rijeka, once a week.
Flights to Pula and Zadar
The German national airline resumed traffic to Pula and Zadar in late April and early May, respectively.
The Munich – Zadar – Munich route operates twice a week, on Saturdays and Sundays, while the Frankfurt – Zadar – Frankfurt service operates three times a week, on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Pula also has two Lufthansa connections. The flight to Munich operates once a week, on Sundays, while the Frankfurt service will soon operate three times a week; on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.
By the end of June, Lufthansa will have as many as 44 weekly flights to the five mentioned Croatian airports, which is an increase in the number of weekly operations compared to the schedule from the beginning of this month.
At the beginning of July, when the company will operate to Rijeka, a significant increase in the number of rotations to other airports in Croatia is expected. According to Split, Dubrovnik and Zadar, the airline will mainly use aircraft from the A320 family.
