Hey All, I'm not sure if this belongs in the travel section but I'm planning a trip around Europe, and as I am toying with various itineraries, I've noticed that most European cities do not offer direct flights to any airport in Croatia. Most require a long layover in another city. Since this is a 3 week trip, I want to reduce time spent in airports and only book direct flights.

Is there anywhere I can view which airlines and flight paths offer direct service to the county?

Me <========Main Airport

Show all the flights in/out. Quick look show a Flight from most of the major hub in Europe

London, Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, Rome ... About 1/2 look like code share flights, but still go there.


All Airlines if they can not fill the plane to 80-90% between two markets, most of time, they run you thru one of there hub cities to fill the planes up.

I've been looking for a similar comprehensive tool (list of which airlines fly direct to any chosen airport) to no avail. The closest I have found is to use Skyscanner, use a whole country as the origin airport, a specific destination airport, and "whole year" for the dates. For example for anywhere in Germany to Dubrovnik:

Cheap flights from Germany to Dubrovnik at Skyscanner

Then you can click on any of the origin airports and see the prices for all days within a given month.

You'll find direct flights to Croatia from many airports in Europe, but you will need to plan carefully -- there may only be a weekly flight, or 3 times a week type of thing. Keep in mind the Croatian/Dalmatian coast is a big tourist destination so you are more likely to find flights from big population centers that are not necessarily tourist hotspots. For example Germany-Dubrovnik returns 10+ origin airports from Germany but Spain-Dubrovnik only returns Barcelona. I would check a few countries with Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb as destinations and plan from there.

Have you tried this?

OpenFlights.org: Flight logging, mapping, stats and sharing

You should be able to tell direct flights from specific airports.
