Do any European carriers still operate flights within Europe on a one-stop basis?

During regulated times it was common for say BEA (the original) to operate London-Athens via and intermediate point in Europe.

Outside of some Scottish Highlands routes, does anyone know of any current examples of such routings?

There are still a few of those flights, although the amount is limited. These ones come to mind:

TP:
LIS-BLQ-ZAG vv

KM:
MLA-BRU-AMS (triangle, also the other way around)
MLA-CTA-MUC
MLA-CTA-GVA

KM also flies MLA-IST-SOF-MLA

TK also has a triangle flight on certain days of the week. It's either IST-ZAG-LJU-IST or IST-LJU-ZAG-IST.

KM also flies several one-stop triangular charter flights, such as MLA-BRS-CWL-MLA and something like MLA-EMA-LBA-MLA, and other flights between smaller airport in France. I believe KM also does MLA-VIE-BUD-MLA.

I seriously doubt the profitability of such flights.

A couple of extreme examples from Widerøe:

TP:
LIS-BLQ-ZAG vv

Also, I think TP just recently started to fly LIS-BUD-PRG-LIS as a triangular flight a few times per week in addition to the nonstop flights to each city.

Lufthansa also serves some russian cities 1-stop:

FRA-GOJ-PEE-GOJ-FRA
FRA-KUF-UFA-KUF-FRA

I remembered Wideroe after I posted the question but it was too late to edit.

I guess another angle to the original question: In the US many flights are operated Spoke-Hub-Spoke on the same plane and flight #, any similar examples within Europe?

There is Welcome Air, GRZ-INN-HAJ-Kristiansand-Stavanger/Bergen or similar, on the Dornier 328.

LX ZRH-GVA-Moscow is another example.

Also, lots of holiday charter flights are operated on a 1-stop basis if there isn't enough demand to justify a nonstop for a destination.

AP BLQ-NAP-ATH,
AP has now BRU-MXP-SKG
OA has from time to time ATH-SXB-BRU or v.v.
BA (operated by Sunair of Scandinavia) has/had BLL-BRU-BRN
Blue Air operates BBU-BRU-STN


And off course hundreds of charter flights combining e.g. 2 Greek islands, 2 Canaries, ...

LH3206 on day 247 HAM-TXL-DME

They don't fly to SXB and LUX anymore.  Sad
VIE-BLQ-FLR vv was abandoned recently and replaced by dedicated service to both cities.

OS/VO routes that are still operational and fall into that category and I can remember on top of my head:

VIE-DRS-LEJ (triangle flight)
GRZ-LNZ-DUS
SZG-LNZ-DUS

AP is (was?) operating VIE-NAP-PMO and there is also JP's LJU-VIE-FRA rotation.

I was on NG's VIE-BCN-LIS vv service (a 734) a few years back, when they were still operating scheduled flights under their own brand.

Tarom from OTP to FRA in the afternoon with one hour stop in CLJ.

It is confusing because they allocate different fliht numbers for the OTP-CLJ land the CLJ-FRA leg, but the majority of the pax are boarding in OTP for FRA.

I believe the only change is that there is no longer a single flight number all the way but I believe the same aircraft still operates ZRH-GVA and then continues GVA-DME, but now with separate flight numbers. I think the same thing applies DME-GVA-ZRH where the same aircraft operates both flights but with different flight numbers.

Make that GRZ-INN-HAJ-GOT-KRS 2 days per week and GRZ-INN-HAJ-GOT-SVG the 3 other days (no ops on weekends).

I really enjoyed my WF-flight from KKN to TOS as 6 sectors earlier this year

Quoting Someone83 (Reply 1):

SK LYR-TOS-OSL as one flight number.
Coming from LYR, all pax have to deplane and go through customs (incl. checked luggage). Pax for OSL then recheck their luggage and board the flight again.
Into directionb LYR it is a normal stop with pax remaining on board, but IIRC are also free to roam the terminal.

Especially in low season flights (= the combination of two destinations or also two origins) might be different every week.
The AB flight HAJ to ACE I booked for late January departing in the afternoon, now is shown as operating HAJ-ACE-FUE-HAJ with an early morning departure  

-HT

Added: KD sometimes combines HAJ and HAM from Kaliningrad.

Most correct as the real routing is NCE-GVA-ATH on weekdays and GVA-NCE-ATH on saturdays.

Baboo (F7) also operates FCO-GVA-BOD with same aircraft/flight numbers as well as BOD-GVA-FCO. All daily
