Transfer at Zagreb Airport

Krystof Hajek updated 2. 12. 2023

In 2017, a new and spacious terminal was opened, which is also very clearly signposted. Although the airport has grown in size, it has made passing through much easier. The old terminal has been converted into a cargo airport and therefore only 1 building is open for passengers.
