New Terminal at Split Airport to Officially Open Saturday

Daniela Rogulj

The newly built passenger terminal at Split Airport will receive the first passengers on Saturday, July 13, 2019, reports Slobodna Dalmacija on July 12, 2019. 

This will mark the completion of the project to extend the Split Airport, which saw an investment worth 450 million kuna. The official opening will be attended by the Minister of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković, and the arrival of Prime Minister Andrej Plenković is also expected.

The passenger terminal is now larger by an additional 34,500 square meters, and totals 46,000 square meters, with a peak load of up to 2,500 passengers per hour.

There are 32 counters to register passengers and 10 self-check-in counters,  and an upgraded baggage handling system

Although the new terminal with new equipment will operate from Saturday, the existing equipment will not stop working until it is proven completely reliable. There is also a newly built bus terminal of almost 3,000 square meters, with 50 parking spaces for buses and 900 parking spaces for cars.

By value, the Split Airport project is ranked among the most significant on the national level and next to the airport terminals in Zagreb and Dubrovnik by its complexity and structure.

Executed on a total surface of nearly 80,000 square meters, the Split Airport project has brought improvements to airport infrastructure, building capacity, increases passenger and employee safety, improves the quality of service, and creates conditions following Schengen criteria, as well as those of international and domestic traffic.

These capacities, with minimum changes, are sufficient for the next twenty years and are ready to receive or dispatch up to 5 million passengers a year. In 2019, the expected number of passengers at Split Airport is 3.3 million.
