Lufthansa is not coming back to Rijeka Airport this year
Lufthansa confirmed to us that Munich - Rijeka route will not operate during this summer season.
The airline introduced the Munich - Rijeka route last summer season, the route was operating from May until October 2018., as a seasonal one. Lufthansa used CRJ900 aircraft on this route, operating on it just once per week, every Saturday afternoon.
On the same route Croatia Airlines operates with 3 weekly flights, with DashQ400 aircraft, but the route is suspended since the outbreak of the pandemic and the airline did not resume it until now. Lufthansa and Croatia Airline have a code-share agreement on this route.
What is a codeshare flight?
Lufthansa confirmed that the Munich - Rijeka route will not operate this summer season, but the airline re-started flying from Frankfurt and Munich to Zagreb, Pula, Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik.
We sent an inquiry to the Croatia Airlines regarding planned flight resumption date for the Munich - Rijeka route, but until now we did not receive an answer.
