easyJet: Airline to suspend 20 international routes to Croatia due to low demand

Budget airline easyJet has announced plans to suspend 20 direct routes from Croatia to the UK, according to Croatian Aviation. The airline will reportedly be stopping the routes earlier than planned due to low demand following the coronavirus crisis. Croatia was removed from the UK’s travel corridor list last week due to a rise in coronavirus cases.

Currently, Croatia’s coronavirus cases are at 41.1 per 100,000 people.

The country was removed from the UK’s safe list after its cases rose above 20 per 100,000 people.

easyJet, which is one of Europe’s most popular airlines, is currently operating 38 international routes to and from Croatia.

The routes are from Pula, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik Airports.

easyJet will reportedly be operating on 21 routes to these airports through September.

But 20 of the routes will be suspended before the end of August.

Here’s a list of the flights that will be cancelled and operating to the UK and other destinations.

easyJet will operate three routes to Pula in September but five of them will be suspended.
