The Airport Pula opened for international and domestic air traffic in 1967. It relies on the development of tourism, and it is situated in the Istrian Region.
The capacity of the airport is 1.000.000 passengers annually, and the capacity of the new port facility built in 1989 is based on maximally expected traffic of 10 airplanes and 5.000 passengers at the same time. Due to well-known circumstances, the number of passengers significantly fell in 1990.
The airport can accept larger airplanes. Because of its suitable meteorological, technical, and technological conditions, it is the alternative airport for Croatia and for the airports of the neighbouring countries.
In the area of the Istrian Region there is also a smaller airport Vrsar used for tourist traffic of small airplanes, sports and excursion flights and similar, and there are also some sports air-fields - landing fields: the most suitable in terms of space is the one in Medulin (Campanož). Locations in Karigador and Buzet are used for the needs of sport flying or paragliding.
