direct flight from Budapest to Dubrovnik

I need help finding a direct flight or a short connecting flight from Budapest to Dubrovnik. I found one recently based on a tip from a Rick Steves forum and lost it. There is a flight search engine that I'm unable to locate. Everything I'm seeing now is quite expensive and inconvenient.
Suggestions appreciated.

I don't believe there are any direct flights between those two cities - you'll need to have 1 stop. The shortest flights appear to be by Austrian Airlines with a stop in Vienna (2 hours and 45 min or so). Otherwise, for a 4-5 hour flight, you can also search: Croatia Airlines, Germanwings, Airberlin, etc. In general, Dubrovnik is not a terribly cheap or convenient airport to fly into (I flew into Split when visiting Croatia).

By the way, I found the above info in less than 1 minute just by googling "direct flights to dubrovnik from hungary".

Good luck finding the best fare!

The most common search engine that we might have recommended earlier for European flights is Or is a newer site that attempts to search many modes of transit by many different local providers, then you click through to those companies to verify details.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've looked at those flights/sites. I agree it doesn't seem like the easiest hop. Was trying to start Croatia from the bottom up as flights home from Zagreb are more convenient than Saraevjo or of course Dubrovnik (33 hr. min.).
As I said there is a post out there somewhere about direct flights, I believe it was seasonsal and about four times a week. It may have been a few years old.
Thanks again!

There are plenty of cheap, direct flights between Zagreb and Dubrovnik. I'm just not sure if there are direct routes between Budapest and Zagreb. Seems counter intuitive to connect in Zagreb since you'll be ending here, but it's worth a look. Go Opti may have a transfer available between Budapest and Zagreb Airport, which I did last year. They may have discontinued this service, however, because it's not a popular route.
