The tourism future in Zadar looks set to grow even more, with a huge redevelopment plan in place for the airport. Located just 2 hours away from the nearest large city, Split, Zadar Airport has been granted a permit to expand the international departures terminal, bringing it line with the capacity to deal with Schengen standards. The 1.5 million euro project is soon to get underway, and with more tourists than ever before predicted to flock to the picturesque coastal town, it is a redevelopment that is badly needed.
Last year saw 515,000 visitors passing through the airport, which is a huge jump on the previous year. Many predict that this year is going to surpass that number again, and with new airlines all announcing routes into Zadar, a better quality airport is required. Ryanair, EasyJet, Eurowings, and Flybe are all heading into Zadar from this summer, and these are all low cost airlines too, so that will more than likely attract even more growing numbers of visitors.
The tourism boom in Zadar is certainly fantastic for the area, and it’s also great for the visitors who get to come and check out this wonderful part of the country.
