While the numbers have been above 100,000 for the last month, this weekend brings the busiest weekend of travel yet, reports Splitski Dnevnik on July 27, 2019. 

Namely, the Split Airport and Ferry Port will handle some 117,000 travelers, which is the biggest weekend in traffic this year.

“On Saturday and Sunday, there will be about 58,000 passengers through the Split Airport and 220 aircraft, which is the largest number of passengers and aircraft during a two-day weekend this year,” said the Head of the Reception and Dispatch Service at Split Airport, Mate Melvan.

According to Melvan, this weekend is the peak of the tourist season, and at Split Airport, they are preparing to keep traffic operating without interruption.
