Croatia Airports

There are six major airports in Croatia

Most major airports in the United States and Europe provide flights to Croatia, which has become a holiday and vacation hotspot over the past few years. More and more people are discovering the history and beauty of the ancient cities scattered around the beautiful countryside.

When looking for good deals on flights to Croatia, it is always better to begin looking early. Usually, the earlier you begin your research the better the deal you will find. It might even be possible to find a great package deal, one that comes with hotel accommodations or deals on certain tours. Look around – you never know what great deals you can find.

Airports in Croatia provide easy connections with many European cities, bringing thousands of tourists daily, especially during the peak summer season months.

Croatia's Six Airports

A total of six airports serve the major cities in the country. Most tourists flying in will begin their journey from these places.

When making arrangements, you need to know in advance the different types of activities and places you want to go on your vacation so you can book your flight to the correct airport. If you want to go skiing in the north, for example, then you don’t want to end up in Dubrovnik, which is the country’s southernmost city. For skiing you'd choose Zagreb instead, located near Sljeme peak (part of Medvednica mountain a nature park) - home to annual Men and Women's Slalom Snow Queen Trophy.

Zagreb Airport

Zagreb Airport (ZAG) is located just 11 kilometers to the southeast of the city. Zagreb is the capital of Croatia. The airport has been named "Franjo Tuđman", after Croatia's first president.

Aeroflot, Air France, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines, BH Airlines, Croatia Airlines, CSA, Germanwings, LOT, Lufthansa, Malev, TAP, Turkish Airlines and WIZZ Air serve Zagreb Airport. Most of these are Western European airlines, with a few Eastern European airlines thrown in.

Rijeka Airport

Rijeka Airport (RJK) is a mere fifteen kilometers from that city. It is a smaller airport, serviced by a number of airlines, including Croatia Airlines, HLX and several others.

Pula Airport

The Pula Airport (PUY) is located on the southeast end of the Istrian Peninsula in the town of Pula, best known for its Pula Arena Roman amphitheatre. The airport is located 6 km from the city centre.

Split Airport

Split Airport (SPU) is located 12 kilometers from the ancient city of Split, which dates back to the times of the Greek colonists. Split Airport boasts a large number of airlines operating within it. You'll find Air Malta, Air One, Croatia Airlines, Easy Jet, Finnair, Germanwings, Luxair, Mistral Air, Sterling Airlines, Tomas Cook Airlines, Ural Airlines and many others for your convenience.

Zadar Airport

Zadar Airport (ZAD) is located in Zemunik, which is just 9 kilometers from the town. Zadar is served by Croatia Airlines, Ryanair, Sky Europe, Germanwings, ScandJet, InerSky and several smaller airlines.

Dubrovnik Airport

Dubrovnik is one of the most frequent destinations and boasts a large number of airlines. You'll find KLM, Malev Airlines, Delta, Air France, Austrian Airlines, Croatia Airlines, Czech Airlines, Virgin Airlines, and quite a few more, as well. Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) is just 18 kilometers from the famous walled city of Dubrovnik.

All of these airports are located fairly close to some of the major city centers in the country, which means it will be a breeze to get to your hotel and to all of the attractions the city has to offer. Because the airport is not located directly in the city, you can be sure that you won’t have to hear the drone of airplanes flying overhead either!

You will find several other, smaller airports as well, but the above Croatia airports serve most of the hot destinations in the country. If you are going to be going to another of the cities, however, you may wish to see if you can find an airport that can bring you closer to your vacation action.

No matter how you get to Croatia, you will definitely have a great time once you get there!
