Eight days earlier than in 2014, the Split Airport on Wednesday saw its millionth passenger this year. It was a passenger on a Croatia Airlines flight to Zurich, according to a report in Poslovni.hr.
This year’s millionth passenger at Split Airport was Swedish citizen Satumaarika Emmesjoe who, together with her family, spent her holidays in Dalmatia.
Noting that this year’s millionth passenger was welcomed eight days earlier than last year, representatives of the Split Airport say that the total passenger traffic this year is 11 percent better compared to the same period last year.
At a small ceremony, staff of the Split Airport presented the Swedish passenger with a commemorative gift voucher worth 300 euro which can be used in a duty-free-shop at the airport, while Croatia Airlines gave her two return tickets for a flight of her choice.
The lucky passenger said she was pleasantly surprised by the award and that she did not expect such a beautiful end to her holidays in Croatia. She said that she had wonderful time and that she and her family will certainly return to Croatia in the future.
