DUBROVNIK, 15 June 2020 – After almost three months of no international passenger flights, Dubrovnik Airport welcomed its first flight on Monday afternoon. 

The coronavirus pandemic closed Dubrovnik Airport in March and after almost two months it reopened for domestic flights when Croatia Airlines started resuming some of its air travel operations within Croatia in May with flights from Zagreb. 

Today, Latvia’s flag carrier airBaltic was the first to international flight since the shutdown to touch down when flight BT497 landed from Riga just before 5:30 p.m with 95 passengers on board, including one baby.
