Lufthansa, as it says Croatian Aviation as of March 1, it intends to resume traffic to Zagreb Airport. Traffic on the Frankfurt-Zagreb-Frankfurt route was suspended in March last year, following the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic. After a year, the German national airline plans to resume traffic on that route from March 1st.
The Frankfurt - Zagreb - Frankfurt route will operate daily until the end of March with an early afternoon departure from Zagreb, and smaller capacity aircraft have been announced on the route.
Lufthansa intends to renovate another line from Zagreb Airport. It works with the line between Munich and Zagreb, which was suspended in October 2020 and since then there is no direct connection between the two cities.
This route should operate daily until the end of March, with the same type of aircraft as on the route to and from Frankfurt, and an increase in the number of weekly flights on both routes is expected from the beginning of the summer flight schedule, ie the end of March.
The temporary withdrawal of the carrier that has been flying to Zagreb Airport for more than 50 years could be called a kind of precedent, but given that 2020 was the worst in the history of aviation, the move was not too much of a surprise. The fact is that Lufthansa will certainly have a good result on the routes to Zagreb in the spring and summer, while in March we will still be afraid of possible ad-hoc cancellations of this well-known airline, according to Croatian Aviation.
