Delta Air Lines announces 4 weekly flights between New York JFK and Dubrovnik
April 30, 2021 – As tourism chiefs gather in Dubrovnik, multiple sources indicate that direct flights from New York JFK to Dubrovnik with Delta Air Lines will be announced today.
Apparently, the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board, Kristjan Stancic, is in town, flying to Dubrovnik from Zagreb last night.
And a press conference was announced.
Maybe he will throw me another unnecessary lawsuit, or maybe he will publicly apologize to me and the Croatian taxpayer for wasting my time and money. (Learn more about Croatian media compare Paul Bradbury trial to Kafka trial)
But I think there is another reason for the press conference, because there are other things going on.
Ina Rodin, New York director of the Croatian National Tourist Board, is also in town, with a group of American travel agents on a family trip to Croatia.
There are a little over two weeks left before the election.
Hmmm. Put all of the above together, and I guess there will be a big announcement coming up. Much bigger than another useless trial anyway.
Connecting to New York can only mean one thing: a new direct flight announcement. I’ve done some research with New York and aviation contacts, and it looks like we’ve got some big news on the way.
Normally I don’t report the theft speculation until things are officially confirmed, but my contacts in the US are pretty sure of this one, and I’ll be offline in a workshop all day at the Dubrovnik Digital Nomads in Residence program.
From the information I have obtained, I expect the following announcement:
Delta Air Lines will launch a direct service between New York JFK and Dubrovnik this summer. It will be a seasonal line starting in July and flying four times a week.
Add that to the recent announcement of United Airlines also providing flights from Newark to Dubrovnik, and this is again great news for Dubrovnik, which is Croatia’s most flight dependent destination, as well as the preferred choice for tourists. Americans.
Interest in Dubrovnik has always been strong from the US market, and the city got a great free promotion last year through our Total Croatia Travel INFO Viber community (which won the 2021 International Grand PRix for managing crisis), as Kresimir Macan, the city of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board hosted the ABC crew for several days, resulting in 6 reports on ABC News, including the one above on Good Morning America, which has been watched by 12.5 million people.
One of the first places that might share the news with an American audience once confirmed is the KB and Marlee radio show, which normally broadcasts from Fort Worth, Texas. Marlee is currently in Dubrovnik, however, one of 10 winners of Dubrovnik’s inaugural Digital Nomads-in-Residence program. Here it is in the former Lazareti quarantine station, near the city walls, currently a coworking space for digital nomads.
We will provide a story update after the press conference with confirmed details, assuming this is the theft announcement. Or maybe another trial. Or a public apology.
