This summer, the Hungarian low-cost airline introduced a new route to Croatia from Dortmund to Split, which was originally scheduled to operate in the winter flight schedule this year. That will not happen though.
The Split - Dortmund route started operating on August 1st this year, after Wizz Air opened its new base in this German city. Flights to Split operated three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The company originally announced this route as a year-round service, tickets were on sale for the entire winter flight schedule this year, but there will still be no flights.
Wizz Air, however, decided to operate on this route only in the summer flight schedule, which is not strange given the current global pandemic and reduced demand. Split is no exception, the company will not operate this winter to airports in the region where there are significantly more flights, such as Skopje, Tuzla, Belgrade and a number of other destinations.
Split Airport is the only destination of this well-known low-cost airline in the Republic of Croatia, Wizz Air operates on four international routes to Split in the summer; from Warsaw, Katowice, London and Dortmund.
Wizz Air used to operate towards Osijek Airport (Basel - Osijek route), but this route was canceled before the outbreak of the global pandemic. The company has not yet announced the summer flight schedule for next year, it remains to be seen whether Wizz Air will introduce new routes to Croatian destinations in the summer of 2021, this airline, as we unofficially find out, is interested in introducing flights to Zagreb Airport.
