Zadar Airport (IATA: ZADICAO: LDZD) is the airport serving Zadar, Croatia. It is located in Zemunik Donji 8 km from Zadar railway station.[1]

History[edit]

The airport served as a former base for Lufthansa's flight school InterCockpit and it still serves as a Croatian Air Force main training base.

Zadar Airport was one of the few airports in the world where the taxiway crossed a public road. The road was closed on 7 April 2010 due to the terms negotiated with the European Union during Croatian accession negotiations.[2]

From the beginning of April 2013 Zadar Airport became a Ryanair base with a stationed Boeing 737–800 and serves 16 European destinations in Germany, Ireland, UK, France, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
