Expansion of Split Airport to Handle 3.5 Million Passeners Has Begun

Part of the reason for the rise in tourism in Central Dalmatia has been the huge increase in flights coming into Split Airport, with almost 100 European destinations directly connected to the Dalmatian capital in 2016. The large increase in flights was reflected in passenger numbers, with Split handling more than 2 million passengers for the first time in its history in 2016. And the year is not over yet…

The airport is responding to the needs of its growing number of passengers with some expansion of its own, and contracts have now been signed for a large expansion of the airport which, when complete, will be able to handle some 3.5 million tourists a year. Work is about to start, with Phase 1 delivered by summer 2018, and the entire project completed a year later.

Great news, and you can see some images of how the new-look airport will be. To learn more about Split, click here.
