Flights to Zagreb

Visiting the Croatian capital by air is a great travel option. Every day, flights to Zagreb leave from multiple UK airports, travelling directly to the city in just over two hours. That's much faster than trains or buses, putting one of Eastern Europe's most vibrant, youthful cities within easy reach.

Which is the main airport in Zagreb?

Wherever travellers fly from, they will touch down at Franjo Tudman International Airport (often shortened to Zagreb Airport). The airport can be found about six miles south of the city centre, so transfers won't take long.  Arrivals have a few options thanks to taxis, car hire or a 30-minute shuttle bus ride to Zagreb Central Station, ensuring that reaching hotels won't be a problem.

Which airlines offer flights to Zagreb?

UK travellers can travel to Zagreb with Croatia Airlines or British Airways. Both airlines fly from London Heathrow, travelling straight to Franjo Tudman Airport with no changes required. Both offer year-round services, so travellers can make the journey whenever the need arises.

Why travel by plane to Zagreb?

There are plenty of compelling reasons to book a flight to Zagreb. Perhaps most importantly, journey times are short. Flights from London Heathrow only take two hours 20 minutes to get to Zagreb, while buses will take well over 24 hours. That's a massive difference. Additionally, planes fly year-round, offering excellent flexibility, and Heathrow is easily accessible from most parts of the UK. At the other end, Zagreb's Airport is also close to the city, with transfer times of 30 minutes or less. So flying is quick, and getting into town should be hassle-free.

Before you travel to Zagreb by plane - good to know!

When travellers arrive in Zagreb, purchasing a Zagreb Card is an excellent idea. This card can be used for 24 or 72-hour periods, entitling holders to free public transport on the ZET network, and it also offers plenty of appealing discounts. That way, visitors can access leading attractions like the Museum of Arts and Crafts, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the popular 360 Observation Deck without paying anywhere near full price. But venturing off the beaten track can be rewarding too. The Museum of Broken Relationships offers a totally unique experience, while stocking up on food and drink at Dolac Market is a low-cost food option; with fresh, locally harvested grapes, Croatian cheese, and pastries aplenty, it's a fine place to prepare for a picnic.
