Zagreb (ZAG) Airport
Zagreb ZAG Airport Overview
Zagreb Airport ZAG (or 'Zracna Luca Airport') serves Croatia's capital city and its surrounding areas.
The Airport is located a few kilometers north of Velika Gorica on State Road D408, and 15 km south of the city of Zagreb, with connections to motorways A1, A2 & A3. A new rail line alongside the eastern bypass of Velica Gorica is soon to be completed, extending from Zagreb across the Homeland Bridge and creating a new east entrance into the city.
With a long runway and an estimated 2.3 million passengers in 2012, Zagreb Airport is hub for Croatia Airlines and is served by a number of international airlines offering direct flights within Europe, with connections to all points of the globe.
In September 2012 the new Airport director states that his priorities would be runway reconstruction, renovation of the terminal building and construction of a new terminal.
Zagreb Airport has presently two passenger terminals--the recently renovated two-level main passengers terminal, and the VIP Terminal:
Level 1 (ground level) of the main passenger terminal is divided into domestic & international arrivals & domestic & international departures - on opposite sides., and offers the following services and amenities: Customs & Security check, passport control, baggage claim, taxi station, ticket sales, transfer point, Information desk, ATM cash machine, post office, parking payment point, waiting rooms, duty-free shop, newsstand, stores, a cafe bar, self-check-in kiosk, and rental car desks for a number of rental car agencies.
Level 2 of the main passenger terminal offers a restaurant, a cafe bar, the 'Zrinjevac' business-class waiting room, VIP lounges, Diners International Club business-class waiting room, and access to international departures.
Parking options at Zageb Airport: Parking lot P1 is to the left of the terminal, P3 to the right and P2 south of P3. A shuttle bus makes a continuous loop around the lots and stops (Bus 01) at Arrivals.
Rental car counters are located in the arrivals area of the terminal.
To get from Zagreb Airport to your destination, you can rent a car, take a taxi, or a bus. It is recommended to pre-book your taxi with Radio Taksi Zagreb (tel. +385 1 66 00671 or visit: radio-taksi-zagreb.hr). Bus Stop 01 is in front of International arrivals/departures; bus stop 02 is in front of domestic departures/arrivals.
Until the new rail connection to the Airport is completed, you need to take a bus to the main railway station in Zagreb on King Tomislav Square, which is 10 km from the airport.
A bus also connect the Airport to Zagreb's central bus station on Marin Drzic Avenue.
Future Airport Developments: While the current terminal is being upgraded, construction on a new passenger terminal is now to start September 2013, completion of which is mandated 1,095 days (3 years thereafter - or 2016).
