June 30, 2019 – Here we are – the last weekend of June, the second official weekend of summer, and already deep into the Split tourist season. 

You might recall that last weekend as we formally welcomed the new season, Split estimated 112,000 travelers from Croatia, around Europe and the world thanks to airplanes, ships, ferries, and catamarans.

And the weekend before that, on June 15th, which officially marks the start of the tourist season, figures revealed that 140,000 passengers would travel through the Split Airport and ferry port that weekend. 

The interest was even so great that extra ferry lines for Supetar on the island Brač were introduced. 

It should come as no surprise then that one day away from July, the figures are only growing bigger. 

Namely, this weekend, 212 aircraft are expected to fly to Split, which will bring 52,000 passengers from more than a hundred world destinations, reports Splitski Dnevnik.

Mate Melvan from Split Airport said that on Saturday, 110 planes would take off and land in Split, bringing 28,000 passengers, and on Sunday, 102 aircraft would transport 24,000 passengers.

From Friday to Sunday, more than 70,000 passengers and more than 13,000 vehicles are expected at the Split Ferry Port, announced Jelena Ivuljić from Jadrolinija.

It was also rumored that 21,500 passengers and 4,058 vehicles passed through the port on Friday and that Saturday’s numbers were somewhat higher, with more than 26,000 passengers and 4,800 vehicles expected, while the number of passengers on Sunday is 22,500 and 4,200 vehicles. 

We also announced back on June 14th that the new terminal at Split Airport was slated to open in “approximately two weeks” as technical checks were underway and they only needed the Croatian Ministry for Construction and Spatial Planning to issue an operating permit. We are still waiting for news about the opening date today. 

Fortunately, the new one-way traffic regulation at the Split Ferry Port seems to be significantly reducing crowds, as you can see in the video posted on Saturday.

To say that summer is well and truly here would be an understatement.
