airBaltic suspends new Croatia flights

NEWS FLASH


Latvia’s airBaltic has decided to cancel nearly 50% of its scheduled flights until November 2020 due to the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, which will affect its planned seasonal operations to Croatia. The airline, which was to inaugurate new services from Vilnius to Dubrovnik and Rijeka this summer, has suspended the two routes. Based on its existing schedule, the airline will reduce its seasonal service between Riga and Rijeka from two to one flight per week, while operations from the Latvian capital to Split will continue to operate at three times per week, as was the case last year. airBaltic has scheduled April 15 as a tentative date for the resumption of its operations, with the carrier to initially run flights from Riga to twelve European cities.

    The good news is that out of most routes Croatia is reduced the least. Air Baltic is retireing the 737 immediately.

    I had a ticket with them for 29th of August from Stockholm to Tallinn, they canceled that flight one week ago due to Corona. They offered me a voucher which I have to use until 31st of May which contains 20 more euros. I was shocked that they already decided to cut routes, but I guess that's a reality... And it's not like I can use voucher for them when I come back to Croatia

    1. This is why many airlines are continuing to fly and why the likes or Emirates wants to resume services as soon as possible. While they are are operating flights they are actually offering you the consumer an alternative and just have to offer you this crappy voucher which you will likely never use so they get to keep your money. This way they get around many government consumer rights regulations.
