Compared to the previous ones, airports in Croatia recorded a larger number of international routes this weekend. A total of five of Croatia's eight airports had scheduled international (and domestic) routes this Saturday and Sunday.
Air traffic is slowly recovering, as we approach summer, so does the number of international routes to airports in Croatia. The same thing happened last year, after the end of lockdown across Europe.
Dubrovnik Airport on Saturday, April 24th, had a total of 5 international and domestic routes. Croatia Airlines flew two flights to Zagreb, Lufthansa operated two flights to Munich and Frankfurt, and EasyJet had flight to Geneva.
This Sunday traffic was low. There was just one international flight from Madrid (operated by Iberia), while another two flights were from Zagreb, operated by Croatia Airlines.
Pula Airport had low traffic this weekend, but this Sunday this airport had first international scheduled flight in this summer season, from Moscow, operated by S7 Airlines, as we announced it earlier.
This Saturday and Sunday Pula was connected with Zagreb and Zadar by domestic flights of Croatia Airlines.

The following companies had two flights to Split this Saturday: EasyJet from Basel and Geneva, Eurowings from Stuttgart and Dusseldorf, Croatia Airlines from Frankfurt and Zagreb, Lufthansa from Munich and Frankfurt, and one flight of KLM from Amsterdam.
