Although the European Union has made some positive noises about opening up its borders to travelers from the United States, nothing concrete has yet been put into place and that has left the bigger US airlines looking around for destinations that they don’t yet serve and that are happy to accept visitors with a year’s worth of travel dollars burning holes in their pockets.

Croatia is one such destination, and Delta has announced that it plans to launch a new non-stop service between New York and Dubrovnik in just over 7 weeks’ time.

Croatia’s Entry Requirements

Croatia is currently open to US visitors who can provide proof of a negative PCR or Antigen test (taken within 72 hours of departure), proof of full vaccination, or proof of a recent recovery from Covid-19, and travelers meeting one or more of those requirements do not have to self-isolate or quarantine upon their arrival.

Delta’s New Dubrovnik Route

Starting from 2 July, Delta will offer 4 weekly flights between New York JFK and Dubrovnik on the following schedule:

DL184 JFK 19:30 – 10:45+1 day DBV (Tue, Thu, Fri & Sat)
DL185 DBV 13:00 – 17:15 JFK (Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun)

According to ExpertFlyer, the service is set to run through 2/3 October.

Delta will operate its new service to Croatia using its Boeing 767-300 aircraft which offer 26 lie-flat seats in the Delta One (Business Class) cabin…

…and 171 regular Economy Class seats.

The Delta One seats on this aircraft don’t offer a particularly great experience (I reviewed them a few years back) but they’re still a huge step up from the seats you’ll find in the cabins further back in the aircraft and the non First/Business Class cabins on all other transatlantic airlines.

The Delta Comfort+ seats are just the standard Economy Class seats with extra legroom (35”) and while most of the standard Economy Class seats offer just 31” of pitch (legroom), the 18” of width that they offer makes them one of the more spacious Economy Class seats that you’ll find offered by transatlantic airlines (although that’s as much an indictment of the other airlines as it is praise for Delta).

Bottom Line

2 July will see Delta launch its first-ever route to Croatia when flight DL184 takes off from New York JFK bound for Dubrovnik. The flights are now on sale on Delta.com with the service expected to run through 2/3 October.
