The history of Zagreb Airport starts in 1962 when a passenger terminal was built on this area. Today, our airport records 3 million passengers a year at the current terminal that stretches over 65 000 square meters. A new passenger terminal, named after the first Croatian president Franjo Tuđman, was opened to the public in March 2017.
The concessionaire of Franjo Tuđman Airport, MZLZ Jsc, is a company with six shareholders bringing international expertise in airport development – Groupe ADP, BBI, Marguerite, IFC, TAV and Viadukt.
The airport provides all-year connections to the most important European hubs, and it managed to attract a number of new airlines in the past three years. Particularly important was the arrival of airlines that have established direct intercontinental connections with Zagreb.
Franjo Tuđman Airport has positive impact on the development of air transport in the region, and above all cooperates with tourism authorities and industry groups to increase the profile of Zagreb as desired tourist destination
