New Routes of the Day (3 September 2021): Ryanair between Zagreb and nine airports
Ryanair, which opened its Zagreb base in July, has added nine additional routes from the Croatian capital between 1 September and 4 September. Oslo TRF flights began on 1 September, with Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden and Paris BVA flights beginning the following day. On 3 September there were new flights to three destinations in Germany; Dortmund, Frankfurt HHN and Memmingen, while service to Malmö (Sweden), Podgorica (Montenegro) and Weeze (Germany) began on Saturday 4 September. None of these nine routes face direct competition.
24 routes on sale from Zagreb
Ryanair’s maiden flight to Zagreb started on 2 June this year (from Brussels CRL), followed by Milan BGY (17 June) and then Gothenburg, London STN and Rome CIA (all on 23 July) and Sofia (3 August). In December, a further nine new services are currently scheduled to start. The destinations starting then are Basel, Dublin, Eindhoven, Malaga, Malta, Manchester, Naples, Paphos and Thessaloniki. As a result, Ryanair currently has flights to 24 destinations to/from Zagreb currently on sale.
Ryanair is using two ex-Lauda A320s to operate its new Zagreb routes. The aircraft are registered 9H-LOW and 9H-IHH. Both are configured with 180 seats, nine fewer than Ryanair offers on its 737-800s.
