Iberia, the Spanish national carrier, is set to significantly expand its seasonal flights between Madrid and Zagreb in the upcoming year, surpassing pre-pandemic levels. Unlike in 2023, the airline plans to resume operations to the Croatian capital just ahead of the 2024 summer season, commencing on March 27. In a notable enhancement, Iberia will increase the frequency of flights on this route. Starting from early July, the airline will offer daily flights between Madrid and Zagreb, subsequently escalating to eight weekly flights from July 28. This frequency will include two daily flights on Sundays, and further rise to nine weekly flights from August 2, featuring double daily rotations on both Fridays and Sundays.
Iberia has outlined ambitious plans for a total of 171 flights connecting Madrid and Zagreb in the upcoming year, a substantial increase from the 68 flights operated in 2023 and the 123 flights in 2019. The airline has made available 30,320 seats for sale between the two capitals in 2024, marking a remarkable 158% surge compared to the previous year. As of now, the Airbus A320 is scheduled for 129 flights, while the A321 is allocated for 43 flights in the coming year. It's worth noting that these details are subject to change at this early planning stage.
