Lufthansa and Swiss International Air Lines plan to increase operations to Belgrade, Ljubljana, and Zagreb this coming winter season, which begins on October 27 and runs until March 30, 2025. In Belgrade, Swiss will add an extra weekly rotation over the winter for a total of seventeen weekly flights, up from last winter’s sixteen weekly services. The Swiss carrier will maintain double daily flights between the two cities Mondays through to Thursdays, with a triple daily service on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. A range of aircraft have been scheduled to operate the route throughout the winter, including Airbus A220-100s, A220-300s, A321s, the Embraer E190 E2s and the Embraer E195 E2s, the latter two being operated by Helvetic Airways.

As previously reported, Swiss is increasing frequencies between Zurich and Ljubljana to fourteen weekly. The majority of the flights will be operated by Helvetic Airways on Swiss’ behalf with its 110-seat E190 E2 jets. On the other hand, Lufthansa will add an additional three weekly flights to the Slovenian capital for a total of 24 weekly services. The additional three weekly rotations will come on the Munich – Ljubljana route, which will be maintained ten times per week, instead of last winter’s daily service. It will complement Lufthansa’s double daily flights between Frankfurt and the Slovenian capital. As a result, the German carrier will maintain two daily flights between Munich and Ljubljana on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Lufthansa will also ramp up operations to Zagreb. This coming winter, the airline is adding an extra five weekly flights to the Croatian capital for a total of 28 weekly services. The airline’s Munich – Zagreb route will see an additional four weekly flights for a total of fourteen weekly services, while the Frankfurt flights will be increased from thirteen to fourteen weekly as well. As a result, Lufthansa will fly from both Frankfurt and Munich to Zagreb twice per day throughout the winter. A range of equipment will be used on the two routes, with the CRJ900s scheduled on 80% of all flights, followed by the A319s on 11% and the A320s on the remaining 9% of services during the 2024/25 winter season.
