Turkish Airlines plans to operate on the Istanbul - Zagreb route four times a week in November this year. The company operates regularly to Zagreb, without canceling the scheduled flights.
The Turkish national airline, a company that normally operates to the most destinations in the world (over 315), plans to operate four times a week on the Istanbul - Zagreb route in November this year.
The airline now operates less weekly flights compared to last year's winter flight schedule (10 to 14 flights a week), but given the global pandemic and reduced demand, this move is not surprising. The company also operated four times a week in the summer flight schedule to Zagreb (twice a day last year!) And the same number of weekly operations was announced for the first month of this year's winter flight schedule.
Turkish Airlines has direct flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Flights on Mondays and Fridays will operate in the evening, while flights on Wednesdays and Sundays are scheduled in the morning.
Given the fact that entry into Turkey is possible without testing on COVID-19, and currently very favorable prices for return tickets of Turkish Airlines on the route from Zagreb to Istanbul, a large number of our citizens decided to travel to this destination at this time, so the load factor on the only route to Croatia is very good.
Zagreb is the only airport in Croatia which has a direct route to Istanbul
The second destination of Turkish Airlines in Croatia is Dubrovnik. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the Istanbul - Dubrovnik route did not operate this summer season, and it is obvious that it will not operate even in the winter months ahead.
Turkish Airlines re-launched regular flights to Zagreb on July 1st this year and since then there have been no cancellations of departures on this route, which is a rarity in the aviation industry today.
