SPLIT, 13 July 2019 – After more than two and a half years of construction, the new terminal at Split Airport has officially opened on Saturday afternoon.
The new terminal means Split Airport has gained over 35,000 m2 of space and an increased ability to handle around 2,500 passengers per hour instead of the current 2.000.
The 450 million kuna project was opened on Saturday by Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković, and the Minister for Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butković, Dalmacija Danas reported.
“I am pleased that this expansion project has been completed at one of our most significant airports, which recorded a turnover of 3.1 million passengers last year. This is a very valuable project for improving the infrastructure of airports in Croatia,” said Plenković, adding that the project was financed by the airport along with funds from the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The new terminal features 32 check-in counters, 10 self-automated security lanes, a restaurant, new lounge and baggage handling area. There is also a new carpark with a total capacity of 900 cars, and a bus terminal which can handle 50 buses.
The new terminal means Split Airport will be able to handle 5 million passengers per year with 3.5 million planned this year.
