Delta has announced plans for its first nonstop service to Croatia this summer.

The US carrier will operate four flights per week between New York JFK and Dubrovnik from July 2. Timings will be as follows:

  • Flight DL184 will depart JFK at 1930 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, arriving into Dubrovnik at 1045 the following day
  • Flight DL185 will depart Dubrovnik at 1300 on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, arriving into JFK at 1715.

Flights will be operated by a B767-300 aircraft, configured with Delta One, Delta Comfort + and Main Cabin seats

With Croatia welcoming fully vaccinated travellers (or those presenting negative PCR tests or a recent recovery certificate), a number of carriers have announced transatlantic services to and from the country in recent weeks.

United Airlines will launch a New York-Dubrovnik route on July 8, and start-up carrier is also set to commence flights from Dubrovnik to New York Newark and Los Angeles International from late June.

Commenting on the new route Joe Esposito, Delta’s senior vice president – network planning, said:

“Customers are at the centre 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.

“More countries are easing restrictions for vaccinated travellers, and we’re ready to help reconnect people to their lives and loved ones.”

Delta recently announced plans to offer flights to Iceland from three US destinations this summer, citing it as “the first destination in Europe to permit entry to fully vaccinated Americans”.
