Lufthansa to boost operations across all former Yugoslav markets

Lufthansa plans to maintain flights from Frankfurt to Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Skopje and Sarajevo, as well as from Munich to Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana this coming winter season, which begins on October 29 and runs until March 30, with services and capacity to be increased on all routes.

Lufthansa intends on operating 575 flights to Belgrade, up 13.9% on last winter. The airline will maintain double daily rotations from both Frankfurt and Munich. It will offer 88.692 seats each way, up 29.4%. Apart from the increased number of flights, the airline is also upgrading capacity, with services from Munich to be operated by a mix of Airbus A319 aircraft, which have the capacity to seat 138 and 144 passengers, as well as the 90-seat CRJ900 jet rather than the 122-seat E195 and the CRJ900, which were predominately used last winter. Lufthansa will run a total of 484 flights to Zagreb and will offer 47.916 seats each way. This is up 37.9% and 39.9% on last winter respectively. Frequencies will vary depending on the time of season but will start off with thirteen weekly services from Frankfurt and ten from Munich. Capacity will be increased on the Munich route with more services planned with the A319 jet instead of the CRJ900 when compared to last winter, although both aircraft types will be deployed on the route.
The German carrier will operate a total of 450 flights to Ljubljana, representing an increase of 16.9% on the 2022/23 winter. It has put 44.940 seats on sale each way, which is up 23.1%. Overall, Lufthansa will maintain double daily flights from Frankfurt and daily from Munich to the Slovenian capital. The capacity growth is being fuelled by services from Munich. Lufthansa plans to deploy its A319 on the service from the start of the winter season on four of its weekly flights, while the remaining three weekly rotations will be run by the CRJ900. Last winter, the A319 was introduced into service on the route later on in the season, with the majority of flights being operated by the CRJ900s.
Skopje will be featured in Lufthansa’s winter network after the carrier launched operations from Frankfurt to the Macedonian capital this April. The airline has scheduled 217 flights on the route and has 36.456 seats on sale each way. With ten weekly rotations, all flights are currently planned to be operated by the A320-family fleet. Lufthansa will run 154 flights between Frankfurt and Sarajevo this winter, up 25%. In total, the airline has 21.252 seats available to the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, an increase of 19%. All flights on the route, which will be operated daily, are currently scheduled to be performed with the A319 aircraft. Changes at this early stage, particularly with equipment, remains possible.
