United to launch Dubrovnik service


The world's second largest carrier, United Airlines, will launch seasonal summer flights between New York's Newark Liberty Airport and Dubrovnik from July 8 until October 2, linking the two cities with a nonstop service for the first time in thirty years. Flights will run three times per week, each Monday, Thursday and Saturday departing Newark, with the Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. United will become the second US carrier to commence operations to Dubrovnik in recent years following American Airlines, although the latter has terminated its seasonal Philadelphia service due to the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. United's flights will be timed to connect in Newark to over 65 cities in North America.

Commenting on the development, United’s Vice President of International Network and Alliances, Patrick Quayle, said, “As countries around the world begin the process of reopening, leisure travellers are eager to take a long-awaited getaway to new international destinations. "The new route unlocks the natural beauty of the outdoors for our guests. It’s also the latest example of how United is remaining nimble in rebuilding our network”. With a fleet of over 700 aircraft and a destination network spanning over 300 cities, United is the second largest carrier in North America after its rival American Airlines. It is also one of the founding members of Star Alliance and boasts a wide-ranging codeshare agreement with Croatia Airlines since 2013. United has its codes and flight numbers on the Croatian carrier's services from Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, London, Munich and Zurich to Zagreb, as well as from Frankfurt and Munich to Split and Dubrovnik.

United Airlines business class cabin

Services to Dubrovnik will run with the 214-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring thirty seats in business class, 49 in premium "economy plus" and 135 in economy class. The airline's business class features seats which recline into a fully flat bed, while meals and drinks are complimentary in economy class, unlike on its domestic services. United's entire international fleet is fitted with wireless Internet connectivity. United faces no direct competition on the route. US nationals are permitted entry into Croatia with a negative PCR test or a Covid-19 vaccination certificate. Flights between Dubrovnik and New York were previously maintained thirty years ago by JAT Yugoslav Airlines and Pan Am.

      So true. I was thinking how with A321XLR they could easily operate 5 weekly to EWR but no, why when it's easier like this. They didn't even bother to get them to fly to ZAG where they can offer extensive connections to the domestic network.

      This is actually great news for OU. They can now start codesharing on flights from an entry point in Croatia itself. OU flights to/from DBV are going to be fuller now.

      Yeah because OU is just so perfectly run that no one should say anything against them, right? ;)
      Then again we have to wonder what ZAG is doing. TP delayed flights once again, TU suspended them completely and now even AF is cutting the second daily for the summer. They will have a brutal summer but DBV is smart because they from the start didn't rely on crappy OU but looked for business in other places.

    7. Problem with some people here is they absolutely don't want to hear what others are saying. I firmly believe OU will go bust soon. It could have been avoided if the company, two decades, or the latest decade ago, started with serious growth, regionally and globally. By doing so, today they should have been much bigger and financially more stable. It did not happen because nobody cared, because company was led and stuffed by uhljebs. The same who justify today's situation and cannot stand the criticism that they ruined company instead to develop it by doing nothing and spending taxpayers money.

      OU should have grown with tourism demand but in stead they failed to follow the trend and they let others in. They could have a seasonal base in DBV and operate two A330 to long-haul destinations. They could fly to New York and maybe another place to bring these people but no, it's easier to have 50 flights a day to LH Group airports. Now people think OU can fight FR?! ok

      @pozdrav
      You are the one who absolutely doesn't want to hear what others are saying. There have never been conditions under which OU would be able to sustain based wide-body aircraft. They have to be used as much as possible, maybe flying to two destinations per day for each aircraft. Croatia just cannot support so many long-haul destinations at such frequencies.

      I know you are going to say that if airlines from outside Croatia can fly to Croatia, OU can do it too. And that's not the case. Those airlines are based at airports where the market is big enough to sustain much more destinations. So they can fly to Croatia at lower frequencies, because they can send their aircraft somewhere else in the meantime and still achieve maximum use of the aircraft.

      Even if OU goes bust, it has nothing to do with long-haul opportunities, because they never existed. But OU won't go bust. In the first place because the government will keep supporting it. In the second place because Ryanair is going to generate a demand that will eventually overflow to other airlines such as OU. In the third place becasue OU can still profit from codeshare agreements. In the fourth place because OU flies to central airports instead of remote ones. OU may be in a precarious state right now, but their future is bright, especially now that Ryanair arrived.

    10. I am very carefully listening what others are saying. The last time you were saying the same as today, I asked you for numbers which prove you are right. You said you had no numbers. So you say no, no numbers, I say yes, no numbers. So, neither you nor me, cannot claim being 100%right, because we both don't present numbers. Only, there is just one small difference between us - I base my saying on 25 years of experience, you base your saying on something someone told you/thaught you , in order to make you believe smaller and "underdeveloped" countries cannot sustain long-haul, which "knolewdge" is actually way of self-limitation of those countries, better formulated people from those countries, in order not to enter into, and profit from, the most lucrative part of civil aviation, long-haul. Such people "lead" OU, so pardon me I place you in "uhljeb" category, in which you fit completely, even if not formally the one.

      Ja sam vam prezentirao nekoliko puta što se dogodilo na tržištima sličnim Hrvatskoj kada je domaća long haul kompanija otvorila transatlantske letove. Malev ih je prestao operirati oko 2007., Tarom 2003., Czech Airlines 2008., Balkan Bulgarian u devedesetima. Kompanija s malim resursima i velikom konkurencijom ne može preživjeti zbog većih predatora poput Lufthansa Grupe, Turkisha, Britisha, KLMa, Air Francea itd. Ako je long haul tako odlična stvar za kompaniju, zašto su Aegean Airlines i Air Baltic tako nezainteresirani za isti? Ili zašto je JU nekoliko godina gubio novce na JFK liniji?

      Vaše objašnjenje na ovo je bilo "u Croatiji je puno uhljeba" i "Hrvatska ekonomija je pokradena privatizacijom, a Mađarska nije".

      Delete
    12. Sve spomenute zemlje i njihove kompanije skoro da uopce nemaju dijasporu na koju mogu racunati, skoro uopce ili uopce nemaju turizam slican Hrvatskom, nemaju "cijeli Balkan iza sebe", prema tome polazite od pretpostavke slicnih trzista koja to po mom misljenju uopce nisu. Ako uz Alitaliu koja ima milijarde drzavne pomoci i operira ogroman broj long-haul letova u Italiji moze postojati kompanija Blue Panorama koja takodjer radi long-haul, onda je potpuno neupitno da je to mogla i Croatia. Ako relativno mali i relativno siromasni Portugal ima TAP, Hifly i Euroatlantic, koji svi rade long-haul, mogla je to i Croatia. Takodjer mi je drago da gubitke JU na JFK-u pisete u proslom vremenu; time potvrdjujete moje navode da je OU nakon samo nekoliko godina , a ja sam govorio o desetljecu ili dva, takodjer mogao doci do profitabilnog long-haula, posebice s obzirom na milijarde koje su u njega "ulupane" i koje su se umjesto u razvoj koristile za sponzorstva sportskih i inih takmicenja, financiranja duplog leasinga za racun Misetica, placanje nepostojecih radnih mjesta ljudi koji uopce ne dolaze na posao, i "skupljanje mrvica" iz LH grupe, sto je takodjer placeno. Ali kakvo drugo razmisljanje i zakljucke ocekivati u okolini kojoj je mozak toliko ispran da vjeruje u price o jednom tipu jogurta na trzistu na kojem ih je bilo pedesetak. Isto tako kako je u ex-yu bio jedan tip jogurta, i dirigirano od istih ljudi, dolaze i price o tome da Hrvatska ne moze imati long-haul. Srdacan pozdrav!

      Skoro da nemaju dijasporu? Informirajte se o tome prije nego što nešto ovakvo napišete.
      Uopće nemaju turizam? A što su Budimpešta, Prag i Transilvanija? Ljude samo zanima Hrvatska i to je to?

      Govorite kako se Hrvatska ne može uspoređivati sa mađarskim, rumunjskim, bugarskim i češkim tržištem, a sljedeća rečenica vam je usporedba sa Portugalom gdje samo jedan Porto ima putnika kao Hrvatska, Italijom gdje Sicilija ima više putnika od Hrvatske, a o ostatku države da ne govorim. Kojeg vam to uopće ima smisla? Pa jeli hrvatsko tržište od 11. mil po potencijalu i putnicima sličnije mađarskom sa 16. mil. putnika ili talijanskom sa preko 80. mil?

      Delete
    14. Nisam govorio o ukupnom talijanskom trzistu nego o jednoj kompaniji, Blue Panorama, koja je po velicini slicna OU i radi long-haul, sto vi tvrdite da je nemoguce. Porto i Sicilija imaju vise putnika od Hrvatske jer imaju ljude u zrakoplovstvu i turizmu koji rade na razvoju a ne na uhljebljivanju, izmedju ostalog i kompanije koje rade long-haul. I za kraj, procitajte brojeve iz danasnje teme, i recite da li stvarno mislite da trziste 300.000 putnika za USA i skoro 200.000 za Kanadu, koji brojevi su mogli sa linijom, ili linijama OU biti i puno veci zahvaljujuci transferima iz Grcke, Madjarske, ex-yu, te nasim putnicima koji izravno lete za sj. Ameriku iz Venecije i Beca, nije dovoljno za takav promet. Ja sam siguran da je dovoljno. I nadam se da ste pojeli jogurt za dorucak, sada ih barem ima vise vrsta.

    15. Anonymous11:46

      Istina, niste govorili o sveukupnom talijanskom tržištu ali ste zato govorili o Blue Panorami Airlines koja djeluje na istom. Blue Panorama Airlines se ne bavi transferima ili long haul za SAD ili Kanadu, ona je leisure prijevoznik koja cilja na destinacije za odmor. I tržište na kojem djeluju ima više od 100. mil. putnika i više od 60. mil. stanovnika što je izrazito visok potencijal za leisure linije namijenjene lokalcima. Znači Blue Panorama i Croatia se ne mogu pa po skoro ničemu usporediti.

      A taj broj putnika nije možda nekako povezan s turističkim potencijalom tržišta? I zar talijanska aviokompanija nije "propalija" i korumpiranija od one hrvatske? A ne čini mi se baš da se na aerodromu Palermu (fun fact: grad veličine Zagreba) i Cataniji (grad s aglomeracijskim brojem stanovnika višim od SDŽ, čak ima i metro koliko je velik) radi nešto daleko bolji posao. Ne stoji vam baš vaša teza.

      Ti brojevi nam govore da ima long haul potencijala iz Hrvatske, no sezonalnost je još uvijek važan faktor. Croatia Airlines ako uzme npr. 2 aviona trebat će ih operirati cijele godine, a svi znamo da tijekom zime nitko nije zainteresiran letiti long haul iz Hrvatske zbog malog potencijala. Pa i Korean i Emirates su ukinuli cjelogodišnje linije za Zagreb i prije pandemije. Toliko o potencijalu long haula za lokalnu kompaniju.

      I da Grčka i Madjarska, obe države su imale nacionalne avioprijevoznike s long haulom koje su ukinule te linije daleko prije propasti baš zbog jake konkurencije. Potencijala za long haul ima, ali to ne znači da će long haul biti profitabilan.

      Što želite reći s ovim jogurtom?

    16. Zadnjom recenicom potvrdili ste da uopce ne slusate sto drugi govore. A ako ste culi, a ne razumijete paralelu s jogurtom, onda zaista nemamo o cemu razgovarati. Pola milijuna putnika izmedju sjeverne Amerike i Hrvatske godisnje je 8-9 aviona dnevno u sezoni i 2-3 van sezone. Zasto ne prokomentirate zasto OU nije uzeo dio tog kolaca? U biti je stvar vrlo jednostavna, ali je oni kojima takav zivotni pristup ne odgovara, pokusavaju zakomplicirati. I vise se nemam namjere natjeravati ovdje sa vama jer ste ocito osoba koja ne prihvata tudje misljenje i cija mora biti zadnja. Dakle, kao i obicno, ovo je moj zadnji post za danas, na bilo sto dalje necu odgovarati, pametniji popusta, Vi sve znate, Vi ste u pravu, a Malaysian, Korean, Qatar, Emirates, Air Canada, Transat, United, American su svi bili glupi jer su imali ili ce imati linije za Hrvatsku, ja sam glup jer tvrdim da je dio toga trebala i mogla raditi Croatia, a Vi ste pametni, strucni, niste uhljeb i potpuno ste u pravu, a ja Vam se Ispricavam sto sam se usudio iznijeti svoje misljenje

      Ali za razliku od mene koji čitam vaše komentare i odgovaram na iste, vas očito ne zanima ni malo, niti se trudite pročitati ili razumijeti moj komentar. Zato ste sada napisali totalnu glupost sa ovim Unitedom, Transatom itd.

Znači na odgovor na cijeli moj prošli komentar ste iznjeli 0 (riječima nula) protu-argumenata. Ali eto, očito su "vi nepoštujute tuđe mišljenje", "uhljeb ste" i izvođenje drame u raspravi sa ovim " a ja Vam se Ispricavam sto sam se usudio iznijeti svoje misljenje" pokazatelji da ste u pravu oko vaših teza da LCC divizija ima smisla za OU, long haul za Bangkok svakodnevo sa A330 ima smisla za OU ili A350 u floti.

    Won't this affect some airlines flying to DBV, particularly BA?

      It would be nicer if they flew Newark - Zagreb - Dubrovnik - Newark.

    It will be interesting to see how many new American tourists will arrive in Croatia this year thanks to these flights.

    Really glad for DBV!! Another prestigious destination and just proves how DBV is becoming the new Cannes or Nice of the Balkans. Having both AA and UA is unique.
    One phrase: Bravo Hrvatska!!

      "Having both AA and UA is unique."

      Indeed, pity that no ex-YU airport has both these airlines.

      You mean just like only one airport in ex-YU has year-round long-haul flights?
      By the way, the US State Department is advising Americans to reconsider traveling to Croatia.
