Dubrovnik Airport is in Čilipi, 19km southeast of Dubrovnik. Croatia Airlines, British Airways, Iberica, Turkish Airlines and Vueling fly to Dubrovnik year-round. In summer they're joined by dozens of other airlines flying seasonal routes and charter flights.
Croatia Airlines has domestic flights from Zagreb (year-round), Split and Osijek (both May to October only). Trade Air has seasonal flights to/from Rijeka and Split.
Atlas runs the airport shuttle bus, timed around flight schedules. Buses to Dubrovnik stop at the Pile Gate and the bus station; buses to the airport pick up from the bus station and from the bus stop near the cable car.
City buses 11, 27 and 38 also stop at the airport but are less frequent and take longer (28KN, seven daily, no Sunday service).
