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.
