In the upcoming winter flight schedule, Zagreb Airport will have direct flights to Switzerland, reports Croatian Aviation.
In fact, Zagreb will be the only Croatian airport that will have regular flights to Switzerland in the upcoming winter flight schedule. Although in the summer flight schedule almost all coastal airports were connected to Switzerland (mainly Basel and Zurich), in the winter flight schedule there are generally no regular flights to the coast, and there will be none this winter.
The Croatian national airline, Croatia Airlines, will also continue to operate on a regular route between Zagreb and Zurich this winter. 11 flights a week have been announced, daily in the morning and 4 flights in the afternoon, every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.
In December, during the holidays, the company plans to increase the number of weekly flights on this route, from 11 to 14 per week, or twice a day, but the realization of flights will, of course, depend on the booking status of individual flights.
The departure of the plane from Zagreb to Zurich in the morning is scheduled for 08 hours and 35 minutes, which allows passengers from Osijek, Pula, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik to travel to the largest city in Switzerland with one short stop in Zagreb.
Ryanair will connect Basel and Zagreb this winter. Namely, on December 3, the Irish airline will introduce the route Zagreb - Basel - Zagreb, which will operate only twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays. Flights have been confirmed for the winter flight schedule.
The Swiss national airline, Swiss International Air Lines, made its last flight between Zurich and Zagreb in October 2019. This line was in circulation only during the summer, but the company discontinued it before the outbreak of the global pandemic.
