it was eerily quiet at night – TOO quiet – and the winds were blowing ferocious at 40+ MPH. All night long, all I could hear was the wind howling through the trees, through the darkness, it was very spooky. -Trinh

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Dubrovnik Airport.

What to Expect

Dubrovnik Airport has a single terminal building that was built in 2009. Two Terminals, B and C, have been recently integrated to handle arrivals and departures. The airport primarily handles seasonal flights, getting particularly busy in the summer. Facilities are limited to a couple cafes and a duty-free shop in the international area. WiFi is available for a fee. For added comfort while you wait, economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

The airport closes nightly from 12:00AM until 4:00AM, so staying the night here is not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
