Bol Airport or Brač Airport (IATA: BWKICAO: LDSB) is an airport on the Croatian island of Brač, close to the town of Bol. It is one of three island airports in the country (the other two being KrkRijeka Airport and LošinjLošinj Airport) used for commercial passenger flights, mainly charter traffic from Europe during the summer season.


Bol Airport is situated in Veško field, 541 m above sea level. It is only 14 km far from the most beautiful and most famous Adriatic beach, Zlatni rat (Golden horn) and 30 km far from Supetar, the largest town on the island. Due to airport's elevation as well as the vicinity of the highest island's peak, Vidova gora, there is a possibility of fog, low stratus and poor visibility. There is also a possibility of snow, but only for a few days during winter. The most frequent winds are bora (NE) and jugo (SE) and temporary light winds, such as mistral (W) and burin (NE).

Bol Airport is equipped for acceptance and dispatching of a smaller commercial aircraft up to 100 seats during both day light and night. It is open all year long. Charters and scheduled flights typically operate only during the summer season. Public transportation is not organised however a taxi service is available during airport opening hours.[2]

Bol Airport was established in 22nd May 1993 what makes it the youngest Croatian airport.[3]
