Flights to Croatia from Ireland and the UK for 2024.

We do not include flights or transfers with any of our holidays or charters, but provide the following information to assist you instead.

Below there is a map showing the locations of the airports in Croatia. The nearest airports to Murter where we operate our Flotilla and Learn to sail Holidays from, are Zadar Airport, which is about 45 miles or 70km north of Murter, and Split Airport which about 60 miles or 90km south of Murter.

For couples and groups the easiest way to get from the airport is normally by taxi while singles may prefer to use a mix of local buses and taxis as it is a cheaper option.

There is also a table which is a simple attempt at keeping an updated listing what flights will go on which days to Split and Zadar airports, from UK and Irish Airports in 2024.

For guidance on travelling around in Croatia using local buses etc please see Croatia Public Transport

Locations of Croatia airports

Before searching for flights, please note the following

  • Unless specifically arranged otherwise, all Bareboat charters, Flotillas and Learn to Sail Holidays start from 1700hrs on Saturday afternoons, but you do not normally sail until Sunday morning, so any Saturday to Saturday flight is ok, including late arrivals.

  • Mid week flights can be much cheaper, and a popular option is to combine a few days of a conventional holiday, with a sailing week. There are also a limited range of Wednesday yachts available.


Please note that following any of the flight links below will direct you away from this site, so be sure to bookmark any pages that you might want to come back to before going any further.

Not all flights run all season so please check with the individual airlines for their exact timetables.
