The Split Ferry Port and Airport achieved a record weekend traffic of around 65,000 passengers on Saturday and Sunday, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.
“This weekend, 160 planes will land at Split airport, 120 of which are commercial and 40 private, and they will have about 25,000 passengers on arrival and departure, which is the largest weekend traffic this year,” said the head of the Split Airport Reception and Dispatch Service, Mate Matevan.
He pointed out that 45 airlines were engaged in the delivery of passengers to and from Split Airport, and that Split Airport is now connected to 85 destinations in 24 countries around the world.
Melvan said that the 25,000 passengers who operated at Split Airport on the first weekend of July this year are equal to the passenger traffic that was realized at the Split Airport during the last weekend in July last year.
This means that this year’s massive traffic in July started a month earlier than last July’s massive passenger traffic at Split Airport.
“It’s encouraging data,” Melvan concluded.
More than 40,000 passengers and 11,500 vehicles passed through the Split Ferry Port over the weekend, too.
The head of Jadrolinija’s agency in Split, Jelena Ivulić, pointed out that over the weekend, more than 40,000 passengers and 11,500 vehicles traveled through the Split Ferry Port in both directions on the lines to the central Dalmatian islands.
“It will be the most massive weekend traffic this year in Split’s ferry port,” Ivulić told Hina over the weekend. She added that she is extremely satisfied with the increase in the number of passengers in the Split Ferry Port.
Most guests are from the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovenia, said Ivulić.
