Pula Airport (Croatian: Zra?na luka Pula; Italian: Aeroporto di Pola; IATA: PUY, ICAO: LDPL) is the international airport serving Pula, Croatia, and is located 6 km from the city centre. It served 777,568 passengers in 2019. The airport is designated as the alternative airport for parts of Slovenia and a multitude of cities in eastern Italy. It serves as a major access point to city of Pula, as well as most of Istria, most notably Brijuni national park.
Pula Airport at current location was initially used only for military purposes but has been changed to civil airport as of 1 May 1967 and saw 701,370 passengers in 1987. Same year works on new terminal building began and were completed by 1989 with capacity of 1 million passengers per year. Croatian War of Independence has caused sharp decline in passenger numbers. Airport has seen steady increase in passenger volume over the next 3 decades, surpassing previous record in 2018. As most passengers flying to/from Pula airport are holiday makers flight numbers have a significant seasonal character.
Pula Airport has a single terminal building with capacity of 1 million passengers per year. Airport serves both domestic and international flights. Inside the terminal there are couple of café/snack bars as well as duty-free shop. None of the gates are equipped with jet bridges but rather the passengers walk from terminal building to the aircraft or are transferred by bus.
Because of its location and fairly good weather conditions whole year around, as well as lower flight numbers during winter months it is frequently used by European carriers for training flights.
Airport can be reached by dedicated bus line from centre of Pula. Schedule is adjusted on a monthly basis to meet the flights arrival/departure.
