There will only be two flights in the first week, and daily flight operations willl start one week later, on July 3rd. According to the information from Dubrovnik Airport, last KLM arrival to Dubrovnik was 33 years ago, in 1988 with a Boeing 747 “Jumbo Jet”. Now this route will be operated with a smaller Embraer ERJ-190 (in the picture). 

At the same time KLM will also boost flight operations on Amsterdam – Split route. This route will have two daily flights except on Saturdays. Total of 12 flights a week means one flight a week more then before the pandemic, in 2019 peak summer season. However, significant increase of flight operations on this route is now in pre-season period.
