The Spanish national airline Iberia has confirmed to Croatian Aviation that it plans to return to Dubrovnik and Zagreb in March this year. This is certainly positive news for the tourist industry and having flights so early in the year will no doubt be a much needed boost before the main tourist season starts.
In the summer season of 2020, Iberia operated only on one line to Croatia, connecting Madrid with Dubrovnik. All other routes to Croatian airports did not operate last summer due to low demand causes by the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, the popular Spanish airline plans to return to Zagreb and Dubrovnik at the end of March, although the realization of the flights will depend on restrictive measures and the epidemiological situation.
The line Madrid - Zagreb will start on the 27th of March and will operate three times weekly until the end of April.
The line Madrid - Dubrovnik should start a little earlier, on the 25th of March. And on this route, the company initially plans three weeks of flights, but there are already certain dates with ad-hoc flights on other days of the week. In the period from the end of March to the beginning of May, the company is planning almost 20 return flights on this line, and slightly more seats are available for sale compared to the Zagreb line, over 6,500.
