The Dutch KLM has announced its flight schedule for October this year. Until the end of the summer flight schedule, the company will operate to two destinations in Croatia: Split and Zagreb.
The Dutch national airline will continue to operate on its regular routes from Amsterdam to Zagreb and Split in October.
KLM's Amsterdam - Zagreb route was re-established on July 4th with three flights a week, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, while daily flights on this route are available from the beginning of August. The company operated on this route properly, without canceling certain departures.
However, certain flights in October have already been canceled. In the period from October 5th to 11th, the company canceled flights on Tuesday and Thursday (October 6th and 8th). From October 12th to the end of the month, the company offers daily flights between the two cities, but it remains to be seen whether it will cancel certain flights after mid-October, the possibility is high.
KLM's second route to Croatia, Amsterdam - Split, operated 12 to 14 times a week in August with larger capacity aircraft (B737-700, B737-800). In September, traffic was reduced to three flights a week (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays), and KLM plans to keep the same number of weekly flights on this route in October as it did in September. The last flight on the Amsterdam - Split route has been scheduled for Saturday, October 24th.
KLM will use E190 aircraft with a capacity of 100 passengers on both routes to Croatia. We are expecting that KLM will operate regular flights to Zagreb Airport during the winter months with significantly less flights per week in comparison with winter timetable last year. Given the close partnership between KLM and Air France, there is a possibility that one of the carriers will completely cancel service to Zagreb this winter and re-route its passengers to the partner airline, such a decision will primarily depend on the booking status and travel restrictions between countries.
