From 1 January until 31 October the airport handled 11% more passengers than it did in the same period last year. Management expect that by the end of the year 1.75 million passengers would have arrived or departed from the airport. This year’s results continue the positive growth trend which the airport has enjoyed over the last four years.
The double-digit growth is expected to continue, with over 50 airline companies announcing services between Split and 80 different destinations. The growth, mostly driven by low-cost carriers, which now account for nearly half of the airport’s business, has resulted in a 60 million euro renovation project which will see the passenger terminal upgraded. Split Airport is the second busiest airport in Croatia behind Zagreb, after it overtook Dubrovnik airport last year.
