Customers longing to venture across the pond this summer have another high-demand destination to rediscover – new four-times-weekly nonstop service to Croatia’s Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) beginning July 2.
Croatia welcomes all travelers who are fully vaccinated, have a negative PCR test or proof of recent COVID-19 recovery. The nation is among Europe’s most popular tourist getaways, offering rich history, stunning landscapes and plenty of outdoor excursions.
With Delta’s extensive connectivity, hiking Croatia’s national parks or exploring its beach resorts is only one stop away via JFK for travelers across 44 U.S. cities.
“Customers are at the center of everything we do, including where we fly, and the addition of a new outdoor-friendly destination is another sign of the surge in demand we’re seeing,” said Joe Esposito, S.V.P. – Network Planning. “More countries are easing restrictions for vaccinated travelers, and we’re ready to help reconnect people to their lives and loved ones.”
The JFK-DBV route marks the first time Delta has operated service directly to Croatia.
“We are extremely pleased with the decision of Delta Air Lines to establish the NY-Dubrovnik route this summer,” said Nikolina Brnjac, Croatian Tourism Minister. “Croatia has been open to U.S. tourists since the beginning of April, with proof of vaccination or recovery or a negative PCR or antigen test and booking confirmation. Our national Safe Stay in Croatia label ensures the highest epidemiological standards for tourists and we look forward to welcoming back American tourists very soon.”
Flights to Croatia will operate on the 226-seat Boeing 767-300 featuring full-flat Delta One beds, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin service. Customers can sit back and relax with hundreds of hours of the latest television shows, films, music and more on personal seatback entertainment screens, stay connected with Wi-Fi for purchase and enjoy free mobile messaging.
