Hope for 2021? American Airlines Dubrovnik – Philadelphia Loaded for June 4, 2021

Total Croatia News


May 14, 2020 – There is a LONG way to go until Summer 2021, but at least the American Airlines Dubrovnik to Philadelphia service is in the planning for resumption, according to aviation data experts, ch-aviation

There are so many variables for tourism in Croatia going forward, and planning anything for next year seems ambitious, but I report this little piece of news not because I can guarantee that it will happen, but more because it shows that this very important flight connection is in the plans. 

The American Airlines Dubrovnik to Philadelphia flight was the first direct connection for 28 years between Croatia and the United States, a psychological as well as physical connection between the two countries. 

Along with many of the other inter-continental flights to Croatia, the 2020 Dubrovnik service was cancelled by the American carrier. And with so much upheaval and the inevitable downsizing of airlines and inter-continental flights, it was questionable whether or not the flight would return at all. 

It still might not, but the thing that is worth reporting is that the intention is certainly there. Am very grateful to those very efficient Swiss chaps at ch-aviation who keep track of all things related to the airline industry, for alerting me to this interesting 2021 flight, which was loaded onto the system yesterday. 


All being well, the American Airlines Dubrovnik service will be back from June 4, 2021. You can see the details above in the info I was sent. 

You can follow the latest from the aviation industry via ch-aviation, and we will update you on any developments regarding this flight. 

Interestingly, ch-aviation has its largest subsidiary office in Zagreb. You can learn more about them in this TCN feature story a few months ago

And for a very interesting overview of how the flight scene might look in Croatia going forward, COO Max Oldorf gave us a very insightful interview a few days ago
