After the American Airlines route between Philadelphia and Dubrovnik was completely canceled for this summer season due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the company announced in its latest statement that it no longer intends to launch the line – Croatian Aviation reports.
Philadelphia - Dubrovnik line was introduced in the summer of 2019, and operated from the beginning of June to the end of September three times a week, while in September the line had one additional weekly flight.
Before the outbreak of the pandemic, the company announced that in the summer of 2020 aircraft on this route would operate daily, which was a clear sign that the line was very successful in the previous year. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the line was completely canceled for this summer season, and flights were announced from June 2021 on Boeing 787-9 aircraft, which represented an increase in capacity and a standard of service on the line itself – Croatian Aviation explains.
And now, American Airlines announced in its latest statement that due to the crisis caused by the pandemic, it is permanently canceling certain routes, including this one between Philadelphia and Dubrovnik.
With this, Croatia was again left without a direct connection with the United States.
