Flights to Croatia: Air Serbia Reduces Weekly Flights between Belgrade and Zagreb

The latest news for flights to Croatia as Air Serbia reduces weekly flights between Belgrade and Zagreb in November.

Croatian Aviation reports that in November this year, Air Serbia operates only three times a week on the Belgrade-Zagreb route. The airline normally operated on this route up to 10 times a week in the winter flight schedule.

Due to the global pandemic’s impact, Air Serbia has further reduced the number of weekly flights between the capitals of Serbia and Croatia. Although the company’s original plan was to operate up to 5 times a week on this route, low demand forced Air Serbia to reduce weekly flights further.

Until the end of November, Air Serbia will operate on this route only three times a week, on Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays, in the afternoon and evening.

ATR72 aircraft with a capacity of 70 seats have been announced on all flights to and from Zagreb Airport.

The second year-round Air Serbia flight to Croatia, between Belgrade and Rijeka, did not operate this summer season, nor will it this winter, so a direct flight to Belgrade is only available at Zagreb Airport.

This summer, Air Serbia operated to Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik, to a lesser extent than in the summer of 2019, while direct flights from Belgrade to Zadar, Pula, and Rijeka did not operate.

If the situation normalizes by the beginning of the next summer season, Air Serbia again plans to operate to all 6 destinations in Croatia.

Furthermore, Ex Yu Aviation reports that KLM is the busiest foreign airline maintaining flights to Zagreb this November, accounting for 5.3% of all traffic from the capital. KLM operates between Amsterdam and Zagreb daily, using the Boeing 737-700 aircraft or two Embraer 190 jets.

Thus, KLM leads in front of Lufthansa, Air France, Eurowings, and Turkish Airlines as Zagreb’s busiest foreign airline.
