Russia's national airline will not return to Zagreb Airport this winter. Aeroflot suspended operations on the Moscow - Zagreb route at the time of the COVID-19 outbreak and did not operate on this route in the summer flight schedule this year.
Under normal circumstances, Aeroflot operated on the Moscow - Zagreb route daily, in both summer and winter schedules. After the outbreak of the pandemic, the company suspended traffic on this route. The possibility of re-establishing flight operations in the winter flight schedule was here until few days ago, but since the number of infected cases is increasing again in Croatia (as well as in other countries across Europe), the airline closed sales on the Moscow - Zagreb route for entire winter flight schedule 2020./2021.
Zagreb is not exception, the airline has drastically reduced the number of destinations in Europe and world
This summer, Aeroflot, along with Zagreb, did not operate to the other two destinations in Croatia, Split and Dubrovnik, although flights to Split were scheduled from August this year. However, in early May, Aeroflot landed at Zagreb Airport with a B777-300ER aircraft without passengers, transporting humanitarian aid from China via Moscow to Zagreb.
The first scheduled flight between Zagreb and Moscow is currently scheduled for March 28th, 2021, when the summer flight schedule starts. The capitals of Russia and Croatia will be without a direct air connection for more than a year!
