Over the weekend, the Split Airport and Ferry Port will see the arrivals and departures of about 100,000 passengers, which is the largest turnover since the beginning of this year’s tourist season, reports Splitski Dnevnik on July 6, 2019.

“On Saturday, until midnight, Split Airport will welcome about 29,000 passengers, and on Sunday there will be about 24,000 passengers, totaling to 53,000 passengers for a record in this year’s weekend traffic at the airport,” said Head of the Reception and Dispatching at Split Airport, Mate Melvan.

Passenger traffic during the first weekend of July at Split Airport is about five to six percent higher compared to the first weekend of July last year, and will increase every coming weekend until mid-August, Melvan added.

During the day, 109 aircraft will fly to Split Airport, with passengers from all around the world, while 105 aircraft will fly on Sunday.

“The Split Ferry Port this weekend will welcome 47,530 passengers and 8,790 vehicles, which is the largest of this year’s weekend traffic at that Ferry Port,” said Jelena Ivulić, head of Jadrolinija in Split.

According to the registration plates of the vehicles, most of the tourists traveling to the Central Dalmatian islands are coming from Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic while mostly English tourists are going to Croatia by plane.
