Thanks to the record breaking figures of Croatian airports this year, more new air carriers with new flights will be over Croatian skies in the near future.
Eurowings, a low cost subsidiary of Lufthansa, has announced the launching of new flights from its new base in Salzburg, Austria to Dubrovnik and Split for the summer season 2017. Flights will be operated twice a week on both routes starting from the 27th of March to Dubrovnik, and a day later to Split i.e. on the 28th of March 2017.
On the other hand, the Irish air carrier Aer Lingus, a subsidiary of International Airlines Group (IAG), has announced its plans to operate flights to Dubrovnik throughout the year. Dubrovnik Airport has already confirmed that the Irish airline, which maintains seasonal flights to Dubrovnik, will operate flights from Dublin throughout the winter.
Apart from local holidaymakers, the Irish carrier has carried a significant number of transfer passengers on the route Dublin-Dubrovnik throughout the whole summer primarily from and to the United States.
These new winter flights will be good news for the Croatian Diaspora in Ireland. As a result, Dubrovnik will become Aer Lingus’s only year-round destination in the country.
