Split is a hit and swarms of tourists are continuing to visit the Dalmatian capital. Can the city handle it?

More than 200 planes will bring 53,700 passengers to Split Airport this weekend, and 55,000 passengers will arrive in the city by sea, reports Hina for Slobodna Dalmacija on July 23, 2017. 

On Saturday alone, 107 flights and 29,700 passengers landed at Split Airport, and today, 94 aircraft will bring 24,000 passengers to the Dalmatian capital. 

“One of the next two weekends will be the strongest we’ve had this year and will boast the largest number of passengers. We expect to reach 30,000 passengers in a single day, and we are very close to that figure. Last year, we recorded around 28,000 passengers. This year, we have already exceeded 29,000, and we are approaching the magical number of 30,000 fast,” said Mateo Melvan of Split Airport to Hina.

Melvan continued with saying that by August 15th, there will be between 18,000 to 30,000 passengers traveling through the ferry port and 70 to 100 aircraft with arrivals and departures. 

Melvan also stressed that bookings were more than favorable, and that the season was turning out to be just as good as the pre-season.

Around 55,000 passengers will have traveled from the Split ferry port to the islands over the weekend, and around 8,500 vehicles will be transported on about 34 ferry lines and nine catamaran lines. There will be increased traffic on all routes, especially to the islands of Brač and Hvar.

“Traffic is growing to the northern Adriatic islands of Cres and Pag, in the middle of the Adriatic to Ugljan, and in the far south on the Ploče-Trpanj line. In addition to the already scheduled lines, supplementary trips have been introduced,” concluded Marija Zaputović, a spokeswoman for Jadrolinija.
