July 25, 2020 – At the Split Airport and Ferry Port this weekend, which is the fourth weekend in July, excellent results are expected, which are significantly better than what we had hoped for in early June.

Slobodna Dalmacija reports that after a great last weekend, about 50,000 passengers and 12,000 vehicles are expected at the ferry port by Monday, while 135 aircraft with about 25,000 passengers are expected at the airport this weekend. The upcoming weekend is the peak of the season, and passenger numbers are slowly but surely growing.

“Last weekend was really good, a larger number of passengers extended to Monday and Tuesday, we only had a little calm on Wednesday. But already this Friday morning, the crowds started.

We are approaching 50 percent of last year’s season, last weekend we had extra lines, if everything goes according to plan it will be the same this weekend,” confirmed Jelena Ivulic, head of the Jadrolinija agency in Split, emphasizing that the most sought after destination is still Supetar, but that there are crowds for Hvar, Vis, and Solta.

Registrations are mostly foreign, mostly Germans, but there are also Austrians, Czechs, Slovaks, and Poles.

Pero Bilas, assistant director of Split Airport, says that, given the situation, they are very satisfied with the current results.

“This weekend we expect 135 aircraft, of which 105 are commercial and 30 are in a business arrangement. We anticipate about 25,000 passengers in the two days ahead. We operate with 35 different airlines, we are connected to about sixty European destinations, and the Germans are in the lead.

Passengers from eight German destinations come to us, but Split is loved and despite the pandemic, young people come from Scandinavia, Great Britain, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium… We no longer make comparisons with last season, but if we compare with the previous month when we had 27 thousand passengers in the whole month, and now we will achieve that in one weekend, then it is clear that we are doing a good job,” concludes Bilas.
