An initiative to put pressure on the powers that be to introduce direct flights between USA and Croatia has been launched in the U.S…

The first step in the campaign is a petition which aims to show airlines the strong demand for a direct New York – Dubrovnik – Zagreb flight.

“Dubrovnik, Zagreb, New York and Split are the world’s most vibrant and entrepreneurial cities but DO NOT have an overseas direct non stop flights which could connect our cities in just over 8 hours. Through our petition we can show the airlines there’s strong demand for a direct New York – Dubrovnik – Zagreb flight, providing essential market research on how profitable the route could be,” is the introduction to the petition, before detailing a few reasons why there needs to be direct flights between the two countries.
