The well-known spanish low-cost airline, Vueling, will reconnect Croatia with the capital of Catalonia - Barcelona, from the beginning of next month.
Vueling, a Spanish low-cost airline, has confirmed the reintroduction of regular international flights from Barcelona to two Croatian airports - Dubrovnik and Split.
In the first days of May, this airline will resume regular flights to Dubrovnik and Split from its main hub - Barcelona.
The Barcelona - Dubrovnik - Barcelona route will be in operation from May 2nd, once a week, every Sunday. From May 13th the company will add a second weekly flight, on Thursdays. Vueling plans to significantly increase traffic on this route at the beginning of June and to operate 5 times a week between Dubrovnik and Barcelona. Vueling is the only company operating on this route and has no direct competition.
The second route of Vueling to Dubrovnik, the one from Rome, has been postponed until June 1.
Along with the route to Barcelona, Dubrovnik is currently the only Croatian airport connected by a regular route with Madrid. Namely, the Spanish Iberia resumed traffic on this route in the first days of the summer flight schedule, with one flight per week. From May 2nd Iberia will operate twice a week between Madrid and Dubrovnik, on Fridays and Sundays.
Vueling is coming back at Split Airport
Vueling will be back at Split Airport in May. The Barcelona - Split - Barcelona route has been scheduled from May 1st, once a week throughout the following month, every Saturday. Five weekly flights are planned from June, but it is likely that the company will reduce the number of operations in accordance with the demand, ie the booking itself.
Vueling also run flights to Split from Rome. This route is also currently postponed to June.
No flights in May to Zagreb and Zadar
In addition to Split and Dubrovnik, Vueling normally operates to Zagreb and Zadar, but these routes have not been scheduled for May. More specifically, flights from Rome to Zadar has been scheduled for July, while the route between Barcelona and Zagreb is currently planned from June 19th. Given that there is a high probability that Croatia Airlines will not operate between Zagreb and Barcelona this summer season, Vueling will be the only airline to offer direct flights between the two cities. And in the previous, crisis year, this Spanish airline was the only one which operated on this route, but with less weekly operations and significantly shorter than it was before, back in 2019.
The Spanish low-cost airline will operate 13 return flights to Croatia in May and offer over 4,600 seats between Barcelona, Split and Dubrovnik.
