ZAGREB, October 29, 2020 — Vueling is returning to Dubrovnik in January! The Spanish discount airline plans resume the Barcelona – Dubrovnik route in January 2021.
At the end of the summer flight schedule, the company had suspended traffic to all Croatian airports according to Croatian Aviation. Currently, Dubrovnik is the only destination in Croatia Vueling is planning service for during the winter months.
This summer Vueling flew to Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik, on a reduced schedule compared to last year. As of now, Vueling plans to re-establish the Barcelona – Dubrovnik line starting in 2021. Regular flights between the two cities begin the week of Sunday, January 3, 2021. They will occur twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.
This route should operate until the end of the winter flight schedule (March 28, 2021) with the above two flights. For the summer flight schedule next year, Vueling is currently planning daily flights on this route.
Vueling Summer Flight Schedule Depends on COVID-19 Situation
However, the resumption of these flights will primarily depend on the global situation with COVID-19 as the pandemic directly affects demand. Therefore, in the case of commercial unprofitability, Vueling may cancel the announced flights.
Vueling also announced flights to four Croatian airports for the next summer season: Zagreb, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. In addition, Croatian Aviation will be following up regarding the summer flight schedule of this airline. But they note that it is too early to draw conclusions this far in advance, especially in these uncertain times.
Vueling’s intention to operate on the Barcelona – Dubrovnik route in the winter flight schedule is definitely positive news. However, as Croatian Aviation emphasizes, the resumption of these flights will depend on demand.
