Airports & airlines

UK Skyscanner 125 x 125We highly recommend Skyscanner as the first place to look for any direct or indirect flights to Croatia. The site is easy to use and the best price is usually there!

Zagreb is Croatia's capital and its airport is well-connected. However, Zagreb is quite far from Split (5.5 hrs by bus) and far from Dubrovnik (7-8 hrs by bus) so the quickest thing to do is fly from Zagreb to Split or Dubrovnik using Croatia Airlines connections.

Croatia’s national carrier is Croatia Airlines, which has direct flights from Split (and Zagreb) to many cities around Europe.
Due to Dubrovnik's semi-isolated location, Croatia Airlines has excellent connections from Zagreb to Dubrovnik.
Another option that many passengers choose, due to budget airlines going there, is Zadar airport (2.5 - 3 hours by bus from Split).
