Croatia Airlines introducing new seasonal routes from Split to Oslo and Skopje
14th May 2023, Split – To mark the expansion of its network of European destinations during this year’s tourist season from Split to now Oslo and Skopje as well, Croatia’s flag carrier today held a ceremony at Split Airport ahead of its inaugural flight operated from Split to Oslo. This also expands Split Airport’s air connections with Europe. From today to mid-October 2023, direct international flights on this route will be operated on Sundays (departing from Split Airport at 1:50 p.m.) aboard Airbus aircraft.
The introduction of flights on the new seasonal route between Split and Skopje, whose inaugural flight was operated last Friday on 12th May 2023, was also mentioned during the ceremony. Flights on the Split-Skopje route will be operated twice a week – that is, on Tuesdays, and Fridays – until mid-October this year aboard Dash 8-Q400 aircraft.
– We are glad that we have expanded our network of destinations from Split in this year’s summer flight timetable, and that we will be operating flights from Split to now Oslo and Skopje as well. In other words, during this year’s tourist season, we will be connecting Split directly with 20, and the Republic of Croatia with a total of 24 international destinations. In doing so, we’ll contribute strongly to the development of Croatia’s tourism product and economy, and to increasing the attractiveness of Croatia on the tourism map of the world. – said Marija Pavić, Head of Sales at Croatia Airlines.
– During the summer season, more than 50 airlines fly to Split Airport. Strategically speaking, however, Croatia Airlines is our key business partner because it operates the widest network and the biggest number of direct flights to and from Split, whilst ensuring that our region is connected with the world throughout the entire year. Last year’s network of 18 European destinations to which Croatia Airlines operated flights from Split Airport is now expanded to include two more destinations; namely, Oslo, and Skopje. If we add to this flights operated by Croatia Airlines from Split to 3 other airports in Croatia, and a number of charter flights from Sweden, Great Britain, Spain, and Ireland, then the important role that Croatia Airlines plays not just in Split Airport achieving its business goals, but also in the region further developing its air traffic and tourism product becomes evident. – said Pero Bilas, Assistant General Manager at Split Airport.
During this year’s tourist season, Croatia Airlines will be connecting Split directly with 20 European destinations or 21 airports – that is, with Amsterdam, Athens, Vienna, Berlin, Bucharest, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Copenhagen, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Lyon, Milan, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Prague, Rome, Skopje, Stockholm, and Zurich.
