Dubrovnik Airport is one of the three largest Croatian airports and connects Dubrovnik with the most important European and world destinations. During 2022, Dubrovnik Airport accepted and dispatched a total of 2,149,181 passengers. This is more than one million two hundred thousand passengers compared to last year, but it still did not reach the level of traffic from 2019, when almost 2.9 million passengers passed through the airport.

According to the 2022/2023 winter flight schedule, Dubrovnik is connected to three international and three domestic destinations. Croatia Airlines and Trade Air operate domestic routes, and Vueling Airlines, Turkish Airlines and British Airways operate international routes. During the winter season, Dubrovnik is connected to Zagreb by flights of the domestic national carrier, Croatia Airlines, with daily flights, and thus indirectly by Croatia Airlines lines from Zagreb to other European and international destinations. The private Croatian airline, Trade Air, connects Dubrovnik with Rijeka and Split. Vueling Airlines connects Dubrovnik with Barcelona, Turkish Airlines with Istanbul, and British Airways with Gatwick Airport in London.

Although the winter period is a time of modest air traffic in Dubrovnik, thanks to charter flights, such as Korean Air, which made 4 return flights with a B777-300ER aircraft from Seoul in November, and Freebird Airlines, which operates charters from Dubrovnik to numerous destinations in Europe, a significant increase in the number of passengers in November and December was recorded compared to the same months from last year.

60 years of Dubrovnik Airport

Last year, Dubrovnik Airport celebrated 60 years of operation. On this occasion, a festive celebration was held in July at the Croatia Hotel in Cavtat. On this occasion, the monograph "60 years of Dubrovnik Airport" by Marija Raguž was prepared, which was then presented to the guests, and the director of the airport, Frano Luetić, thanked the numerous guests for coming and especially thanked all current and former employees who contributed the most to the growth and to the development of the airport.

Preparations at the airport for entering Schengen

With the beginning of 2023, Croatia became a full member of Schengen, a zone that includes 22 member states of the European Union as well as Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. It is a space without internal border controls and the largest area of free movement of goods and people in the world. With Croatia's entry into Schengen, border controls at land and sea border crossings were abolished, and from March 26, 2023, they will also be abolished at Croatian airports along with the transition to the summer flight schedule.

Dubrovnik Airport is ready for the necessary logistical changes in order for Schengen to come to life in Dubrovnik's air traffic. The changes imply a new establishment of passenger flows within the passenger terminals, which will make the entire travel process easier for passengers.
