New Split Airport aircraft apron was ceremonially put into operation by Croatian Prime Minister, Mrs. Jadranka Kosor, on 31st August 2011.



In her speech, Prime Minister Kosor pointed out that this project represents extremely important example of how everything can be achieved, if we want and make efforts, and how satisfied she is with the fact that responsible managers of Split Airport have obeyed instructions concerning rational running of business.


On that occasion, Mr. Luksa Novak, Split Airport General Manager, emphasised that that investment and other projects which are still in course of realisation are more than justified, because of ever growing number of passengers arriving to Kastela.


- In the last ten years, we note the average increase of 10 per cent in number of passengers per year. Therefore, by the end of this year, we expect the figure of about 1.300.000 passengers. This season peak days registered up to 110 aircrafts with up to 24.000 passengers. We also set a historical record among Croatian airports, with 274.000 passengers that passed through Split Airport in the month of July – said Mr. Novak, thanking all employees for the efforts invested in their work.
