Flights from Stansted to Dubrovnik take just over two and a half hours, although direct services are only available from April to September. Direct flights are not available during the quieter months, and only on certain days through the summer, meaning you may find it easier to take a connecting service that involves a stopover, or two, in a city such as Vienna or Zagreb.
Direct services tend to depart early in the morning on the outbound leg with Stansted to Dubrovnik flights, meaning it’ll still be mid-morning local time when you land. Connecting services often depart in the afternoon, and take a total of just over six hours with the stopovers added in.
Dubrovnik Airport is located just under 10 miles down the coast from the city centre, which can be easily reached by public transport. Shuttle buses are provided by Atlas, which take passengers from the airport to the city’s main bus station. The journey takes approximately half an hour and costs 40 Croatian Kuna. There is a service to meet the arrival of every scheduled flight at the airport.
There are also public buses put on by Libertas, while services also run to other parts of Croatia. The airport’s taxi stand is located next to Terminal B, while information and details of fares can be found at the counter inside the terminal building. Drivers are obliged to produce a receipt for a journey if requested by the passenger.
For those looking to hire their own car, the rental options are provided by companies such as Avis, Bingo Rent, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, Sixt and Thrifty.
