British Airways reduced flight operations to Zagreb

UK flag air carrier British Airways (BA/BAW), a member of OneWorld Alliance is fighting against the shortage of aircrew members. Therefore flight operations are reduced on London (Heathrow Airport) – Zagreb from July 1st to only four flights a week, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Previously 11 flights a week were announced for the summer peak season. Because of the same reason, British Airways has leased four Airbus A321 with crew members from Finnish flag air carrier Finnair (AY/FIN), a member of the same alliance. Currently also two Boeing 757-200s with crew members are operated on British Airways flights on lease from UK air carrier Titan Airways (ZT/AWC).

Finnish planes are announced on most of British Airways routes to Croatia. We will see them at Pula, Split and Zagreb airports, only not at Dubrovnik Airport. However, Titan Airways Boeing 757-200 has already operated a flight to Dubrovnik recently on behalf of British Airways. Flight operations on these remaining routes to Croatia remain unchanged, and will not be affected by aircrew members shortage, so all flights to Croatian coastal airports should be operated as it was announced.
