Irish low-cost airline Ryanair announced on Thursday that it would reduce planned winter capacity by a third due to a wave of travel restrictions with which European governments are trying to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Europe’s largest low-cost airline expects to fly with 40 percent of last year’s capacity this winter, instead of the 60 percent projected so far.

The company will maintain up to 65 percent of the winter route network, but with a reduced frequency of flights.

They expect to carry 38 million passengers in the fiscal year to March 31, 2021, reducing the September forecast by 12 million. In 2019, they transported 149 million.

That estimate could be further reduced if governments impose more blockades and further restrict travel, the group's chief executive Michael O'Leary said.

"We deeply regret this reduction in the winter timetable, but we are forced to do so due to the poor management of air travel by the EU. Our focus continues to be on keeping the schedule as tight as possible, within reasonable limits,” O’Leary said.

A new wave of travel restrictions in recent weeks has caused a slight weakening of bookings for October, but significantly for November and December.

Ryanair plans to close bases in Cork and Shannon in Ireland, and in Toulouse, France, with significant cuts in Belgium, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Vienna, the statement said.

The German Robert Koch Institute has added the City of Zagreb and Međimurje County to its list of risk areas.

Namely, this classification of the so-called “the red list” means that everyone traveling from these areas to Germany must take a Covid-19 test, and while they wait for the test result, they will be quarantined, according to the Institute's website.

The central criterion for classification as a risk area are countries or regions in which there have been more than 50 newly infected per 100,000 population in the last seven days.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Belgium has published an updated list of countries by zones, bringing the details of the epidemiological situation in each area, which can also be viewed on an interactive map. 

On that map, only one area is currently painted green and that's the County of Istria!

This is what colors on the map mean:

Red:
- The Belgian authorities strongly discourage travel to this zone; or
- The authorities of this country prohibit non-essential travel from Belgium.

Orange:
- Travel is possible, but the Belgian authorities recommend increased vigilance; or
- Travel is possible, but the authorities of this country impose a COVID test and/or quarantine on travellers from Belgium -> light orange

Green:

-travel is possible. Hygiene and social distancing rules still apply.

When you click on the County of Istria, this message appears:
This area is green
Travel is possible without restrictions.
A COVID test and a quarantine are not mandatory on return to Belgium.

One week ago, in addition to the County of Istria, Varazdin County was among the most successful regions in Europe in preventing the spread of coronavirus, according to data published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Belgium, alongside with another region in Sweden, four in Poland, two in Bulgaria and two in Italy.

This summer, the Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air introduced a new route to Croatia from Dortmund to Split, which was originally scheduled to operate in the winter flight schedule, but that will not happen – Croatian Aviation reports.

The Split - Dortmund line started operating on August 1st this year, after Wizz Air opened its new base in this German city. Flights to Split operated three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The company originally announced this line as a year-round, tickets were on sale for the entire winter flight schedule this year, however, there will be no flights in the winter.

Wizz Air decided to operate on this route only in the summer flight schedule, which is not strange given the current global pandemic and reduced demand – Croatian Aviation explains, adding that Split is no exception. The company will not operate this winter to airports in the region where there are significantly more flights, such as Skopje, Tuzla, Belgrade and a number of other destinations.

Split Airport is the only destination of this well-known low-cost airline in Croatia, and Wizz Air operates on four international routes to Split during the summer: from Warsaw, Katowice, London and Dortmund.

Wizz Air also used to operate towards Osijek Airport (Basel - Osijek line), but this line was canceled before the outbreak of the global pandemic.

When the rain clouds finally cleared yesterday the north wind turned the sky a brilliant shade of blue and warm sunshine poured down on the historic Old City of Dubrovnik.

The handful of tourists who are lucky enough to be in the city enjoyed a stroll in the sunshine and soaked up the sights. Coffee al fresco, catching up with friends and trips to the island of Lokrum were on in the diary for yesterday.

Filming of the movie “The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent” starring Nicholas Cage and Pedro Pascal continued in the wider Dubrovnik region yesterday with a car chase in Konavle.

Cage (56) is playing himself in the upcoming movie which is set to be released in the spring of 2021. A few days ago the main promenade in the picturesque seaside town of Cavtat was the backdrop and yesterday it was a winding country road in the Konavle countryside. In what appeared to be a car chase scene, Cage and Pascal, had two black motorbikes in their rear-view mirror.

Instead of a vintage Porsche, which was used during filming in Cavtat, yesterday the vehicle was a little more suitable for the vineyard lined roads of Konavle, a Land Rover. Filming took place near the village of Čilipi, within earshot of the Dubrovnik Airport.

Pascal is no stranger to Dubrovnik having been a part of the HBO series Game of Thrones, he portrayed Oberyn Martell in the fourth season and Dubrovnik acted as a backdrop for an iconic fight scene. Recently the Chilean born actor has starred in the hugely popular Disney+ project Star Wars: The Mandalorian, where Pascal plays Din Djarin.
