At the airport


Zagreb Airport has a handful of cafes where you can grab a drink, snack, and most importantly, a chair, when waiting for your flight. You can also find some merchandise and a duty-free shop. Besides that, Zagreb Airport offers free Wi-Fi, a business lounge, baby care, first aid, ATM and currency exchange and a lost property office.


European airport security might not be as stringent as in the US, but remember, Zagreb is very busy international airport, and you should expect lengthy security protocol queues. Airlines have their own baggage rules, but remember, some rules are valid for all the airlines. Don’t try to bring liquids in size that is not acceptable (above 100 ml) or sharp objects onto the plane, it’ll only lead you to lose your beverage, get stalled in the queue, or in the worst case, have to explain yourself to busy security checkpoint staff.

When to arrive

For any international flight departing from Zagreb Airport, make sure to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight for check-in. If your airline allows you to check in online, that might save you time in the queue, but you’re better off arriving early and having a cup coffee or snoop around the duty free shop than rushing through the airport trying to chase down a closing gate.

Can I Buy my ticket to Zagreb Airport from the Nomago InterCity driver?

It is possible, but be advised, the transfer bus may arrive full. We strongly recommend you purchase your tickets well in advance to reserve your seats. You can also download the Nomago mobile app and purchase your tickets there, so that you avoid printing and carrying physical tickets (just be sure to have some power left in your phone as you’re ready to board).

Your airline or travel insurance (if you have one) may reimburse your transfer ticket costs. Please, before buying the ticket, advise with your airline and/or insurance.
