Split Airport expects 49,000 passengers on 205 planes this weekend, while more than 62,000 passengers and 13,000 vehicles will pass through the ferry port, reports Jutarnji List.

Mate Melvan, the head of the reception and dispatch service at the Split Airport, said that 205 planes and 49,000 passengers are expected at Resnik this weekend.

He reminded us that the Ultra Europe music festival starts next week and that they expect travelers from more than 140 countries worldwide. Intensive preparations have already begun, and they believe the traffic will be even greater, as the influx of passengers has been noticeable for days.

“We can say that the traffic is reminiscent of 2019, which was a record year in terms of the number of tourists, that is, we are certainly at the level of that year, and according to the announcements, even higher. It is important to see how the problems at airports around the world and flight cancellations will develop. Certainly, from today until the end of July, we expect between 20 and 30 thousand passengers per day,” announced Melvan.

He added that they expect between 25 and 40 private planes to land at Split Airport this year because of Ultra, which will bring many DJs.

More than 62,000 passengers and 13,000 vehicles will also pass through the Split city port this weekend. Jadrolinija coordinator Jelena Ivulić says that on Friday, in addition to many regular lines, they also had an extra line to Supetar. While they are running all regular lines today, given the great interest of passengers, an extra line to Brač could sail by the end of the day.

“The situation in the port is such that all our ferries are full on all routes. Therefore, I can freely say that the crowding in the port is constant, and it continued today,” Ivulić pointed out.
