Terrible airport. Took 90 minutes to get through security. Total chaos. Unhelpful staff. Never again.

I found price tag associated with Pula airport transfer pretty expensive. It is only 7 kilometers away from city center. A lot of flights there, but they do only 3-4 bus rides daily...
We agreed on 100 HRK ride from bus terminal to airport, the regular price is 150 HRK.
I was told that for Norvegians they offer the same ride (7 km) for 500 kuna.
It should be regular bus connection to Pula Airport!

Beware if leaving from Pula airport. We were told that 1 hour was sufficient time by our taxi driver. However it took almost 1 1/2 hours to get through security checks and passport control on leaving. It was chaos with no-one controlling people pushing in. As a consequence we almost missed our flight.
