The airport is changing its face thanks to the construction of the new terminal, which has been long awaited but is finally on its way. The new airport operator, Aeroporti di Parigi, wants to make Zagreb Airport a crucial hub both for connections within Croatia and a transit point within the Balkans.
The main airlines connecting Zagreb with the rest of Europe and the world are Croatia Airlines, Aeroflot, Air France, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines and Wizz Air, as well as cargo airlines such as Miniliner and Trade Air.

The bus stop is located at the main exit of international arrivals. Single tickets cost 25 kuna, about € 3.50. The journey time to the centre of Zagreb is about 25 minutes.
