Direct flights from Toronto to Croatia start June 22, 2015! New York, Chicago USA? When?
Momentum builds for non-stop flights from North America to Croatia
Proponents of non-stop airline flights between North American cities and Croatia received a major boost this month when America’s Ambassador to the central European nation said the U.S. is working out the details to once again make direct travel a reality.

While US charter carrier National Airlines is looking to establish weekly seasonal flights from New York to Dubrovnik next year, SkyGreece Airlines will initiate flights from Toronto to Zagreb starting on June 22. The Dubrovnik and Zagreb airports have both undergone major improvements, and the former will host the American Association of Airline Executives in October.
Croatia has become a hot destination of choice for tourists in recent years – last year, it attracted more than 250,000 visitors from South Korea alone (five times more than in 2012) after it was profiled on a popular reality TV show. The country features calm, salt water seas; historic old-world architecture; a Mediterranean climate; an abundance of natural scenery and a close proximity to other European capitals.
“Direct flights between America and Croatia would be a win-win for both countries,” said Niko Hazdovac, an American-Croatian businessman who serves on the Direct Flights Task Force formed by the North American members of the Council for the Government of the Republic of Croatia for Croatians Abroad. “Tourism from North America is already up 12-13% from last year, so direct flights make good economic sense.”
