“We are really optimistic about Europe for next summer. We took a look at it this summer. We started in a few new markets. In fact, we loaded the ones for sale very late. And these new markets are actually some of our best performing urban tariffs, as Croatia and Greece in particular have made it clear to the world that they are open for business. And in fact, our customers responded immediately, and our new flight diplomas have worked incredibly well, ”said United Commercial Director Andrew Nocella, noting that the service was launched for US citizens and residents as they were. allowed to travel to Croatia throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
“The flights from the United States were way above our expectations. These incoming tourists stay in Dubrovnik, which serves as a base for them to explore other places – the neighboring islands and Dalmatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition, these flights are important because they allowed the transport of cargo to the United States. As a result, each plane leaves with around ten tonnes of exportable goods to the United States, ”said Dubrovnik Airport General Manager Frano Luetić.
