British Airways announces a first flight from London to Dubrovnik from mid-May in high season ten flights per week!
The British national carrier, British Airways, has changed its summer flight schedule in which it further delayed its return to Zagreb, but increased the number of operations planned at Split airport, reports Croatian Aviation.
British Airways has not operated to Zagreb since January this year. The company suspended all flights on this route after the UK strain of the virus emerged, when a ban on commercial flights in the country was briefly introduced.
Although companies are gradually returning to Zagreb airport (Lufthansa, LOT, Austrian, etc.), British Airways has not yet done so, and it is obvious that it will not be soon. Namely, the company has canceled all flights until June 21 and is currently planning to operate between Zagreb and London again from that date.
British Airways’ first UK-Croatia flight this year will be to Croatia’s southernmost airport, Dubrovnik. British Airways has announced that flights from London Heathrow to Dubrovnik will start operating in mid-May. Interestingly, the date the UK government has already announced as the end of the travel ban is May 17, and that same date will mark BA’s first flight to Dubrovnik. British Airways plans to fly three times a week from mid-May and then from mid-June it will seriously upgrade its service to ten times a week.
Traditionally, Dubrovnik has been the most popular destination for British tourists in Croatia. And the news that Britain’s flagship airline will return to the city will certainly be greeted positively by the tourism industry. Add to this the fact that United Airlines plans to fly three times a week from mid-July from New York to Dubrovnik and the future of the tourist season in 2021 looks much more encouraging.
