ZAGREB, 6 July 2020 – Scandinavian Airlines, known as SAS, will not resume flights from many Scandinavian cities to Croatia despite announcing a significant increase in the number of weekly flights in its July flight schedule.
“We got confirmation from the airline that the company is not planning to resume seasonal flights on its routes from many Scandinavian cities to Croatia in this summer season, due to the pandemic situation and lower demand,” Croatian Aviation said.
SAS is flying regularly during the summer season from Scandinavia to Pula, Dubrovnik, and Split. Due to the pandemic situation, the airline will not resume many routes this summer.
SAS is already flying on its routes from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to Split Airport, as well as from Stockholm to Pula Airport.
The airline will not resume flights to Dubrovnik in July, and it is almost certain that many regular seasonal and charter flights will not operate as well.
Canceled flights to Split Airport
SAS was flying from 9 destinations to Split Airport in previous years, but this summer season there will be just 3 routes from Scandinavia; from Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
Routes from Tromso, Alesund, Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansand, Aarhus and Gothenburg to Split Airport will not operate this summer season. However, it is possible to get to Split with 1 transfer in Copenhagen, Oslo or Stockholm.
The routes from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to Dubrovnik will, most likely, not operate this year as well.
Pula Airport and SAS
Pula Airport was connected with direct flights to Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Gothenburg and Copenhagen in previous years, but currently, there is just one SAS route, from Pula to Copenhagen.
Zadar – planned new service
SAS was planning to start regular flights between Copenhagen and Zadar two times per week, adding one more destination in Croatia in its network, but right now all flights are cancelled and there will be no flights between two cities this year.
