Today, Split Airport has welcomed this year two-millionth passenger more than a month earlier than last year. The passenger arrived on Croatia Airlines flight OU654 from Zagreb. His/her name is Mrs.Lauren Douch.


It is the result of positive trend of growth in the passenger and air traffic numbers, particularly during the summer period. Namely, during first seven months, Split Airport records 24% growth of passenger traffic in relation to the same last year period. In July alone, 657.000 passengers passed through Split Airport, what represents the record one-month number of passengers in the history, not only of Split Airport, but of Croatian airports in general. According to air carriers, the trends of passenger and aircraft numbers growth will continue in the postseason, too.


On behalf of arrival of this year two-millionth passenger, Split Airport has organised a small party at which Mr. Luksa Novak, General Manager, congratulated the lucky passenger and presented her/him with the occasional gift, and, on behalf of Croatia Airlines, Mr. Boris Kolka, Sales and Marketing Manager, handed her/him two return tickets on one of their flights, at choice of Mrs.Lauren Douch.

Small stone church of St. Bartholomew was built at the end of 13th and the beginning of 14th century. It is situated on the hill within Split Airport area, and it is open for public only one day every year.

The program continued with a party hosted by Split Airport General Manager, Mr. Luksa Novak.
