Turkish national airline is flying on the Istanbul - Zagreb route just four times per week, starting from August 1st.
Turkish Airlines flew to Zagreb Airport 5 times per week from Istanbul International Airport, but from the beginning of this month, the airline reduced the number of weekly flights on this route. Turkish Airlines will operate 4 flights per week to Zagreb Airport, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, flights on Monday and Friday will depart from Zagreb at evening, while flights on Wednesday and Sunday will depart during the morning.
On this route airline will use A319 aircraft, which is also less offered seats between two mentioned cities in comparison with July. Just as reminder, Turkish Airlines flew to Zagreb two times per day before the outbreak of this pandemic, with huge percentage of transfer passengers from Asia. The fact is that visitors from Asia are not coming to Croatia during this summer season, which is significant hit for this route as well (as well as for Qatar Airways). Last summer season Turkish Airlines used few times even widebody aircraft to Zagreb, mostly Airbus A330-300.
Second Turkish Airlines destination in Croatia, to Dubrovnik Airport, was scheduled for September, but all flight have been canceled for that month. Flights are now on sale from October 1st, but it is clear that Turkish Airlines will not resume flights on this route on the beginning of winter schedule, which means that this airline will not come back to Dubrovnik this year.
