Summer changes for Croatia Airlines
Croatia Airlines launched it’s scaled down 2013 summer season timetable last Sunday which sees a significant reduction in frequencies and the suspension of several routes. It comes as the carrier looks to cut costs and is left with one aircraft less compared to last summer.
The majority of the airline’s frequency reductions are to be felt in Zagreb. Flights to Istanbul and Podgorica have been suspended while there will no longer be direct flights from the Croatian capital to London Gatwick either (flights will operate from Split only). However, the airline maintains eight weekly flights to Heathrow. Services to Priština have also been halved. Furthermore, there will no longer be nonstop flights from Zagreb to Rome, instead, all will operate via Split or Dubrovnik. Services to Brussels will receive a four weekly frequency boost.
With the exception of the Istanbul suspension, there will be no major changes in the airline’s operations from Dubrovnik. From Split, Croatia Airlines will introduce a one weekly service to Kassel in Germany, thus becoming the only scheduled airline to operate flights to the German city. Furthermore, a one weekly seasonal flight to Amsterdam will be launched. The carrier has cancelled its seasonal flights from Split to Hamburg. Planned flights from Dubrovnik to Dresden, Pula to Hamburg and Paris and Zadar to Paris and Zurich have all been cancelled.
