US carrier Delta Air Lines has inaugurated its new four-weekly service between New York JFK Airport and Dubrovnik, a day after United introduced flights between the two cities. The Delta Boeing 767-300ER aircraft arrived with a full load of 225 passengers. Services will operate on a seasonal basis, departing the Big Apple each Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, until October 3.
Commenting on the route launch, United’s Vice President for International Network and Alliances, Patrick Quale, said, “Croatia was the first to open for US travellers in Europe, which was the main reason for the route launch. This new service will also enable Croatians to travel via Newark Airport to another 65 destinations in the United States, but it is primarily aimed at brining tourist and tourist dollars to Croatia”.
