The Croatian national airline, Croatia Airlines, has released its winter schedule and although it has added new destinations to the capital Zagreb it has once again ignored Dubrovnik.
New destinations, such as Lisbon and Barcelona have been added to the flights from Zagreb, both having two flights a week. However, the national airline hasn’t added any new flights or destinations to their Dubrovnik winter schedule.
Croatia Airlines will operate to only two cities from Dubrovnik through the winter, Zagreb and Frankfurt. With three flights a week to Frankfurt and twenty-two flights a week to Zagreb this represents exactly the same destinations and number of flights as last winter.
Tourists from the UK, Dubrovnik’s biggest target market, will once again be forced land at the Croatian capital before catching a connecting flight to Dubrovnik. And with Dubrovnik desperately trying to attract tourists throughout the colder months this move from Croatia Airlines is far from supportive.
