Yet another American airline is coming to Croatia this summer! From July, Delta Air Lines will operate on the route from New York (John F. Kennedy Airport) to Dubrovnik!

One of the three largest American airlines, Delta Air Lines, is introducing a direct route between Dubrovnik and New York. Since the independence of the Republic of Croatia, Croatian airports have had no direct connection with this famous American city. Now, in another pandemic year, a second line between New York and Dubrovnik has been announced in just 3 weeks!

Delta has its main hub in Atlanta and an additional 8 throughout the United States. One of them is the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, from which the airline’s planes will fly to Dubrovnik Airport. Under normal circumstances, this company operates to as many as 52 countries on 6 continents and is also a member of the SkyTeam airline association.

Only 10 days ago, United Airlines announced the New York – Dubrovnik – New York (Newark Airport) route, which will start operating in July.

The Delta flight between Dubrovnik and New York (JFK) has been announced from the beginning of July with as many as four flights a week, with B767-400ER aircraft.

Dubrovnik will have 7 flights a week to New York this summer!

Delta has 21 aircraft of this type in its fleet, mainly in three classes: 40 seats in business, 28 seats in premium economy, and 178 seats in economy class.

This is great news for Dubrovnik Airport, which this summer will have 7 flights a week to and from New York to two different airports that serve this popular city. It will be even nicer to see two big American airlines in Dubrovnik!

After American Airlines was the first American carrier to introduce a route to Dubrovnik in the summer of 2019, it is currently the only one of the three major carriers in the United States that will not operate to Croatia this summer. 

Croatia opened its borders to guests from the United States, which was immediately recognized by American travel agencies and airlines. The introduction of regular lines from New York will ensure the arrival of passengers who, even before the global pandemic, had a significant share in the total tourist traffic of the city of Dubrovnik and the wider region.

In addition, the arrival of two prestigious and globally known airlines in Dubrovnik will put this Croatian airport in the focus of the world aviation public, which can certainly only help attract new airlines.
