Qatar Airways reduced its traffic to Zagreb at the end of September, the route will operate with a minimum number of weekly operations in November.
Qatar Airways canceled departures on Mondays and Wednesdays and will operate on the Doha - Zagreb route just once a week, on Fridays throughout November.
Under normal circumstances, the Doha - Zagreb route operated twice a day, with A320 and A321 aircraft, but since the outbreak of the global pandemic, this company has very often changed its flight schedule to Zagreb, canceling operations in July and August for two to three weeks.
Since September, the company operates on this route only once a week, on Fridays, and one flight per week has been scheduled for November as well.
Qatar Airways will have a morning departure from Doha to Zagreb in November, while the departure from Zagreb is planned at 3:35 p.m. Arrival in Doha is at 11 pm, which allows passengers from the Croatian capital to transfer to numerous flights of this company to its destinations in Asia.
However, only one flight a week is not enough, the company in this way does not offer passengers flexibility in choosing the travel date, so the low occupancy on this route (with the pandemic and travel restrictions) is not surprise.
It is likely that when the situation calms down, Qatar Airways will return to Zagreb with a significantly higher number of weekly flights, but we will have to wait for that. A temporary suspension of traffic on this route is certainly possible, especially in the winter months ahead.
