Currently, the airline operates an all-Premium Economy Airbus A350 fleet but plans to lease an Airbus A330-300 with 281 seats to fly this route.

Los Angeles (LAX) to Dubrovnik (DBV) on PRAGUSA

As we shared, the airline PRAGUSA offers two routes. The second is from Los Angeles to Dubrovnik. It has started in the summer, with flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. 

New York (JFK) to Dubrovnik (DBV) on Delta

Another new route is the one from New York to Dubrovnik, and this time it is offered by Delta Airlines. These new flights will be operated on a 226-seat Boeing 767-300. 

They offer Delta One, Comfort +, and Main Cabin seating for maximum comfort. Flights from New York started in July this year, and they are every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 

The plane took off at 8 pm and arrived in Dubrovnik the following day at 11:15 am. In addition, flights return from Dubrovnik to New York every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

United offers a nonstop flight from Newark to Dubrovnik too. This flight is four times a week – Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. United shares that the flight will allow connections to over 65 cities from its Newark hub, which is fantastic for more passengers

Fortunately for all vaccinated Americans, Greece is one of the countries that will welcome you with open arms. This year, there are 3 new routes offered by three different airlines. Each of them is to Athens.

New York (JFK) to Athens (ATH) on American

The airlines decided to offer new routes to the Americans in the summer, as interest in Greece has grown significantly in recent years. In this regard, American Airlines provides flights from New York to Athens. 

These flights are performed every day. The bad news is that they were until October, but we are sure that they will be resumed as early as next summer.

Washington D.C. (IAD) to Athens (ATH) on United

Another route to Athens, but this time is starting from Washington. The flights are offered by United Airlines. They are also seasonal, and the flights were until the beginning of October. That is not a surprise for us, as Greece is a summer destination.

Atlanta (ATL) to Athens (ATH) on Delta

In July, Delta Airlines started a new daily nonstop service from its largest hub in Atlanta to Athens. The flight lasts about 12 hours and 15 minutes. This flight is more than excellent as it allows connections from over 140 cities across the U.S. 


Iceland is a slightly different destination, but it also has its charm. It is undoubtedly a country that you must visit for many various reasons. 

The most fantastic among them are:

  • Incredible aurora borealis is worth seeing at least once in your life. The aurora borealis is observed in dark and clear skies, and you have the most excellent chance of this in the period from September to April, between 8 pm and 2 am.
  • A sun that never sets in summer – you can observe another fantastic phenomenon in this part of the world. From May to the end of July, the sun barely sets at midnight and rises again at 3 am. And on June 21, when the summer solstice, the sun is on full display.
  • You can see the whale – the chance to see a whale in Iceland is enormous. Among the species found in this country are minke and humpback whales.
  • Iceland is one of the friendliest nations – in this country, people will welcome you with open arms.

These are just some of the significant advantages of Iceland. 

This year, two airlines launched two new routes to Iceland: 

  • Boston (BOS) to Reykjavik (KEF) on Delta – the flight is performed daily at 10:25 pm. Its duration is about a 5.5-hour flight each way. Thus, Delta categorically states that it will be competing head-to-head with Icelandair.
  • Chicago (ORD) to Reykjavik (KEF) on United– United started flying in July 2021. This flight is seasonal and was valid from July 1 to October 3, 2021, with a daily flight. We assume that the airline will resume this flight for the Americans with the onset of summer. 


Italy – the country with the most delicious pasta and pizza, but not only. One of the romantic places in Europe where you can have a fantastic vacation. Whichever part of Italy you visit, you will certainly not regret it. 

Delicious food, beautiful architecture and rich history are just a few reasons why it is worth visiting Italy.

In this regard, Delta has launched a new route, namely:

  • Boston (BOS) to Rome (FCO)– Delta initially planned this route in 2020, but the airline delayed it due to the pandemic. 

There is a flight from Boston to Rome every day, as he departs from Boston at 5:15 pm and arrives in Rome 8 ½ hours later at 7:45 am. More interestingly, the new flight will be part of Delta’s COVID-tested, quarantine-free flights to Italy.

United Kingdom

And last but not least, the two new routes from the United States to the United Kingdom, particularly London. There are many reasons to visit London. Many Americans choose this capital to start a business because it provides good opportunities. In addition, London is one of the most exciting destinations for tourists. 

Among the greatest treasures are architecture, stunning museums, and galleries – most of which are entirely free. In addition, London is great for shopping and entertainment. This city has excellent nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and pubs that you can visit.
