It will be directly linked with passenger terminal by passenger bridge over the state road.
Strategic importance: Over two million passengers passed through Split Airport this year, what is significantly over its capacities. We expect total of 2.290.000 passengers until the end of December. The traffic reaches new records each year Every year, and the extending of the airport is necessary to avoid crowds in tourist season. The 17% growth of passenger traffic is realized in the first ten months.
The project Works on Reconstruction and New Construction of Split Airport Passenger Terminal has a strategic importance for the whole County, and is of vital importance for Split Airport.
The double-digit growth of passenger traffic in the past five years has set the great challenges in the use of existing infrastructure, particularly during peak loads. Considering planning of further passenger traffic increase, and to enable regular passenger and baggage flow, the preparation of year 2017 tourist season will be demanding regarding the use of human resources and the purchase of additional equipment. We expect over 2.500.000 passengers.
It is worth mentioning that this is the most important business event that will surely mark the year 2017, and that this is the biggest investment of Split Airport in the past 20 years.
