Every year, Split Airport employees celebrate the Airport Day on 24th August, its patron St. Bartholomew Day.
Only on that Day, a small medieval St. Bartholomew church is open for public. It is situated on the hill within airport area, which is a unique case not only in Croatia, but also in the world.
Yesterday, as tradition goes, the Holy Mass was celebrated, attended by split Airport employees and invited guests, as well as by grater number of believers from surrounding areas. Friendly gathering continued with light refreshments.
Today, at Split Airport, on Croatia Airlines flight OU412 to Frankfurt, this year one millionth passenger, Mr. Branko Curavić, has been seen off. Compared to past year, this year millionth passenger is welcomed 6 days earlier. Namely, with regard to the same period last year, Split Airport recorded 10% increase in number of passengers in the first seven months.
On a monthly basis, in July, the 16% increase in number of passengers was achieved. The first Saturday of August already registered daily record high number of passengers in the history of Split Airport, indicating good continuation of the season.
