ZAGREB, 16 August 2020 – Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair has announced a new service to Croatia which will launch in spring 2021.
Ryanair plans to launch a new service between Pula and Vienna on 28 March 2021. The flight will operate two times weekly every Wednesday and Sunday until 27 October 2021, Croatian Aviation reported.
The A320 aircraft of partner company Lauda, which has its base at Vienna Airport, will be used on the route. The capacity of the aircraft is 180 seats.
There have been no direct commercial flights between Vienna and Pula so far, but Austrian Airlines has previously operated charter flights from several destinations in Austria to Pula Airport.
In the first 7 months of this year, Pula Airport had a turnover of 23,621 passengers, which is a decrease compared to last year of over 94%.
This is the first announcement of a new line to Pula Airport for next year, but traffic will certainly depend on epidemiological measures in the next summer season.
This summer season, Ryanair connects Pula Airport with three international destinations: London, Berlin and Brussels.
