New flights to Zageb, Zadar, Split and DubrovnikThe German national carrier Lufthansa will be introducing several new services to Croatia next summer season. From its new base at Berlin Brandenburg Airport the airline will launch flights to Zagreb, Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik. Additionally, Lufthansa will also inaugurate new flights from Frankfurt to Dubrovnik. It marks one of the biggest expansions undertaken by Lufthansa on the Croatian market. Germany continues to be the lead country market out of Croatia.
Services from Berlin to Zagreb will commence on June 3, 2012 when the new airport opens its doors. Flights will operate four times per week with an Airbus A319. Flight details can be found here. Lufthansa, together with its low cost subsidiary Germanwings, will cement its position as the second busiest airline operating out of the Croatian capital after Croatia Airlines. Besides the addition of Berlin, the two airlines offer flights from Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart and Cologne. As a result of Lufthansa’s new Berlin flights, Germanwings will terminate its service from Berlin’s Schonefeld Airport.
The German national carrier will also operate flights from Berlin to Dubrovnik and Zadar once per week from June 9 and a three weekly service to Split starting June 7. The airline will complete its expansion with a one weekly flight from Frankfurt to Dubrovnik, operated by an Embraer E190 jet.
