    We are flying from Dubrovnik to Pula on Croatia Airlines. The flight arrives at Pula airport at 14.50. How come there are no buses available at that time of the day. The last bus to leave the airport in the afternoon is at 14.40 and the last bus of the day is at 22.00.
    Why is there not a bus to meet this flight which as it happens is a Croatia Airlines flight?

    • Melani Grubić Mikulić   •  

      Dear Luc,

      Departure time of the shuttle bus is always 30 minutes after the flight regardless of what is stated on your bus ticket because sometimes bus schedules are made a lot earlier before flight schedules (so they might not always match). You can see this link ( http://www.fils.hr/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/prices.jpg) for more information about bus departures.

      Hi Nic,

      the 18:00 bus is the bus for the easy jet flight you arrive with, in case plane is delayed the bus will wait, so if you have a ticket for that bus, you will be transported to Verudela.

      Kindest regards,
