Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the heavily reduced demand, the Scandinavian airline SAS will not launch numerous seasonal routes to Croatia in this year's summer flight schedule.
In the summer flight schedule, Scandinavian Airlines had planned to operate from numerous airports in Scandinavia to Pula, Split and Dubrovnik. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the company has decided not to launch numerous lines to Croatia, reports Croatian Aviation.
SAS has no plans to launch flights to Dubrovnik in July, and it is almost certain that many other routes will also not be in this year's summer flight schedule. In the summer flight schedule, SAS had operated from as many as 9 destinations towards Split, while this year only 3 destinations will be run.
The company does not plan to launch flights from Tromso, Harstad, Alesund, Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansand, Aarhus and Gothenburg to Split this year. However, from most of the mentioned destinations it is possible to travel with one transfer via Copenhagen, Oslo or Stockholm, also with SAS.
Lines from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to Dubrovnik are also not on sale and will most likely not be available this year.
Pula had been connected to Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Gothenburg and Copenhagen in previous summer seasons, but SAS will operate only on the line from Copenhagen to Pula and does not plan to launch other lines this summer.
This summer, the company planned to introduce the Copenhagen - Zadar route and thus add another Croatian airport to its destination network. Flights were originally planned twice a week, but have been completely withdrawn from sale for this year.
