The Russian airline we wrote few days ago, Azur Air, is announced another seasonal route to Croatia, to Pula Airport.
A few days ago, Azur Air announced the introduction of the Moscow - Zagreb route with a B767-300ER aircraft, and today we got confirmation of one more new route to Croatia for this summer season.
The company plans to introduce a route between Pula and St. Petersburg as from June 2nd. The route should be in operation until the end of October (October 27th), once a week, on Wednesdays, and it will operate with B757-200 aircraft (maximum capacity of 238 passengers).
During this period, this russian airline will offer almost 10,500 seats between St. Petersburg and Pula, and an additional 15,500 seats on the route between Moscow and Zagreb.
Nordwind canceled flights to Pula
The news came from this airport today that Nordwind Airlines, the company that launched the route between Moscow and Pula on April 28th, will stop operating on it from May 19th. Nordwind is currently holding tickets on sale for this route for the entire summer flight schedule, so it might be that the airline will eventually come back to Pula Airport during this summer.
Given the current announcements, the Azur Air route between St. Petersburg and Pula will be the only direct route from this russian city to Croatia this summer season, while Pula and Zagreb are currently the only destinations of this airline in the Republic of Croatia.
In addition to Nordwind Airlines, S7 Airlines, Lufthansa, Trade Air and Croatia Airlines currently operate towards Pula Airport. According to current announcements, the routes of other airlines will be gradually introduced as from the end of this month.
