Split Airport continues to break records, and in the first week of August alone, it recorded a 3 percent increase in traffic, reports Splitski Dnevnik on August 10, 2019. 

However, Split Airport is not far behind the Split Ferry Port, which, due to the high interest of the passengers, introduces additional lines to the islands almost every weekend.

This weekend, 220 flights and 57,000 passengers will travel through the Split airport, while 95,000 passengers and 18,000 vehicles will travel through the ferry port. Thus, 115 aircraft carrying 30,000 passengers will take-off and land at Split Airport on Saturday alone, while on Sunday, 103 aircraft carrying 27,000 passengers will be on the runway.

“Cumulatively, the airport’s traffic increased by 6.3 percent in the first seven months of this year. In the first eight days of August, we have an increase of three percent again. We are the only airport in Croatia to break the record of 723,000 passengers in just one month, and I am referring specifically to July this year,” said Mate Melvan of Split Airport.

This weekend will also boast big crowds at the ferry port, which will achieve a record 95,000 passengers and 18,000 vehicles from Friday to Sunday, announced Danijela Ivanović from Jadrolinija. The highest demand of passengers is for the island of Brač and Hvar, which will run additional lines, while the rest of the islands will sail according to the usual schedule of navigation.

“Today, we are crowded both on the arrivals and departures. There is more pressure in Supetar on the return than the departure, and from the end of next weekend and elsewhere, we expect more returns than arrivals,” Ivanović added.
