Zagreb Airport – ZAG which is located 10 km from the city centre is named after the former Croatian president Dr. Franjo Tuđman, but it is as well known as the Pleso airport. It is the biggest and busiest airport in Croatia as it has international connections with almost whole Europe as well as national connections with all the bigger cities in Croatia.
Getting to Zagreb from the Airport: In Zagreb there are frequent shuttle buses, going from the Airport to the main bus station. These buses are completely adjusted to the flight schedules and depart from 07:00 (7AM) to 20:00 (8 PM). You can as well use the taxi service, as there is a taxi stand right in front of the airport building. Another option would be a pre-booked private transfer from the airport to any location in Zagreb or even in another city. This option has quite a few advantages, like:
⇒ Door to door service (no hassle with heavy luggage)
⇒Usually cheaper than the taxi service
⇒ No waiting time at the airport, as the driver is waiting for you, even if your flight is delayed
⇒ As you can choose the vehicle type, you can choose a bigger car if you are travelling in a group, so all of you will stay together during the travel
NOTE: The travel time from the airport to the city centre is about 35 minutes, but keep in mind that during rush hour it might take longer. Because of that you should keep in mind that if you are travelling back to the airport to leave the town at least 1 hour prior to your check in time at the airport.
