Records will be broken this weekend at major transport terminals in the Dalmatian city of Split…
80,000 passengers will come and go in 48 hours this weekend at ferry and airport terminals in Split, creating a record in the process. This weekend 170 planes will land carrying over 40,000 passengers. June has been a busy month for Split, with traffic at the airport up 14.2% from the same period last year.
So far in 2015 620,000 passengers have passed through Split airport, which is 10.4% more than in the first six months of 2014.
Whilst 40,000 passengers will be handled at Split airport on Saturday and Sunday, the same amount of passengers will be passing through the city’s busy ferry terminal.
With peak season still a couple of weeks away the signs are good for an excellent tourism year for Croatia. On Friday Minister of Tourism Darko Lorencin said that he expected revenues generated from tourism to pass 7.5 billion euros for the first time in the nation’s history.
