Dubrovnik Airport (DBV)
History, Facts and Overview
Dubrovnik Airport was originally constructed on its current site in 1960, although it was previously based at nearby Gruda, in the south-easterly area of Konavle, for more than 30 years. From the 1990s onwards, the airport has been thoroughly modernised, extended and renovated, with improved facilities, an updated passenger terminal, a new parking area for buses, and additional duty-free shopping.
Nearby Cavtat can be reached in just a few minutes, while the city of Dubrovnik is approximately a 20-minute drive from the airport.
Regional shuttle buses transport passengers from the terminal to the gate of Dubrovnik's old town, where connections can be made to Zagreb, Spilt and a number of smaller Croatian villages.
Taxis depart from a rank outside of the airport terminal and travel to multiple local destinations in Cavtat and Dubrovnik.
