It sounds incredible and it's true - another US airline is coming to Croatia this summer! From July this year, Delta Airlines will operate on a route from New York (John F. Kennedy Airport) to Dubrovnik!
One of the three largest US airline companies, Delta Airlines, is introducing a direct route between Dubrovnik and New York. Since the independence of the Republic of Croatia, our airports have had no direct connection with this famous US city, and now, in second pandemic year, in just 3 weeks we got announcement of a second direct route from New York to Dubrovnik!
Delta Airlines 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 aircraft of this airline will fly to Dubrovnik Airport. Under normal circumstances, this company operates to 52 countries on 6 continents, and is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance.
We remind you that just 10 days ago, United Airlines announced the introduction of New York - Dubrovnik - New York route, which will start operating in July, all the details of that route can be found HERE.
Delta Airlines flights between Dubrovnik and New York (JFK) are scheduled from July 2nd, 4 times per week with B767-300ER aircraft.
Dubrovnik will 7 weekly flights to and from New York!
Delta has 34 aircraft of this type in its fleet, mainly in three classes: 26 seats in business, 35 seats in premium economy and 165 seats in economy class. This is great news for Dubrovnik Airport, which 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 US airlines at Dubrovnik Airport!
American Airlines was the first US carrier to introduce a route to Dubrovnik in the summer of 2019, it is currently the only one of the three major carriers from the United States that will not operate to Croatia this summer. Given that obviously everything is possible in the airline industry today, we will not be too surprised if American Airlines also decide to come to this beautiful coastal city!
Congrats Dubrovnik Airport and Delta Airlines!
