Flying around Croatia
Flying around Croatia
Flying is the fastest but not cheap way of travelling around Croatia, unless you book your ticket in advance (a few months earlier for summer season flights) and get some really good deals.
Croatia Airlines is the only national airlines company operating regular flights between Zagreb and other airports within the country year-round, and with numerous daily flights during the summer season what will enable you to travel very easily and flexible from European countries.
If you plan to visit Dubrovnik, flying is definitely the best travel option you have since Dubrovnik is the southernmost town in Croatia (especially if you are travelling to Dubrovnik for only few days). Besides long drive, you’ll have to cross Bosnia and Herzegovina border if travelling by car.
The airports in Croatia
Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik and Pula airports serve domestic and international flights year-round what makes them the most crowded airports in the country. Other airports are mostly seasonal, some of them with only charter flights in off season.
The route details and more information on flying to and from the particular airport can be found on their websites:

Flying from Zagreb to Brač Island (Bol)
Just to point out a very interesting information for all travellers by plane to and around Croatia – Brač Island has the airport (just close to popular town of Bol), operating flights from May till end of October.
That gives so many incredible opportunities you are maybe not aware off – getting quickly from Zagreb to Brač Island to explore the island for a day or two; get to Split by ferry the other day for walking tour around Diocletian Palace UNESCO World Heritage Site, and finally discover the old town of Trogir on your way to Split Airport before you get back to Zagreb.
Transport from the airports – bus shuttle or taxi?
When you arrive to the one of Croatian airports and need a ride to town, the best is to catch a bus shuttle instead of paying expensive taxi price.
Only in cities Zagreb and Rijeka taxi prices are fair and affordable since taxi service is regulated.
Uber operates in Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik only.
Here you can find Bus Shuttle Timetables from Croatian Airports to cities of Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Split and Pula:
