In addition to Zadar, the Maltese airline Lauda Europe will also operate Airbus A320 aircraft for Ryanair in the Croatian capital Zagreb. This announced CEO Michael O'Leary. The plan is to employ 20 pilots and 40 flight attendants.
Lauda Europe will serve various routes from Zagreb under FR flight numbers. A few weeks ago, managing director David O'Brien confirmed that the Zadar base, which had been postponed the previous year due to the corona pandemic, should open from May 2021. The Opening of the Zagreb base is to take place in September 2021 with two Airbus A320s for the time being. Before that, the routes of Ryanair, Malta Air and Buzz will be served from other bases over the summer.
The following routes are to be flown from the Croatian capital with the A320 operated by Lauda Europe for Ryanair: London-Stansted, Frankfurt-Hahn, Paris-Beauvais, Charleroi, Memmingen, Rome-Ciampino, Sandefjord, Bergamo, Dortmund, Karlsruhe / Baden- Baden, Podgorica and Gothenburg.
According to the latest information, Lauda Europe will in future operate bases in Vienna, Palma de Mallorca, Zadar and Zagreb. Those in Düsseldorf and Stuttgart that were still operated by its predecessor Laudamotion will be closed in autumn of the previous year. Both of these airports are currently no longer included in the Ryanair Group's route network.
