Delta Adds New York-Croatia Flights Starting in July

Taking off for the first time beginning July 2, 2021, Delta will venture across the Atlantic to Croatia’s Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK). Delta’s new nonstop flight is a first for the carrier and will operate four times per week.

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. Delta’s new flight offers extensive connectivity from 40+ U.S. cities, making hiking Croatia’s national parks or exploring its beach resorts is only one stop away via New York’s JFK. 

“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.” 

“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.

In addition to the new flights to Croatia, Delta travelers will see new and returning flights to Reykjavik, Iceland, and Athens, Greece, along with expanded options to Alaska and western United States destinations. This summer, Delta will operate approximately 4,000 daily flights to more than 200 domestic and more than 50 international destinations.

Delta’s schedule to Croatia will operate as follows:
