The new route to Zadar is due to start this July, with flights operating once weekly.

Ryanair’s Commercial Director, Jason Mc Guinness, said: “We are pleased to announce a new Newcastle to Zadar route, commencing in July 2021 and flying once weekly as part of our UK Summer 2021 schedule.
"Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a well-deserved break knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so up to two times with a zero change fee until the end of October 2021.”
The news follows the Prime Minister’s announcement last month that foreign holidays could be permitted from May 17, with hope that all Covid restrictions will be lifted on June 21.
Leon McQuaid, Head of Aviation Development at Newcastle International Airport said: “It’s fantastic to see more great news from Ryanair for the region today with the announcement of Zadar, a brand new destination for Newcastle International Airport this summer.”
