Split Airport is currently the busiest in Croatia and this weekend alone it will handle 180 planes with 32,000 passengers.
This weekend has seen the largest numbers of passengers and planes, an executive at the airport, Mate Melvan, told Hina on Saturday, adding that 140 of those 180 planes were regular flights and 40 were private planes.
“If the situation doesn’t deteriorate, we could have more than 300,000 passengers in July,” he said, adding that Split Airport could already say that the current tourist season was exceptionally good when compared with last year’s, which had been the worst to date.
Jelena Ivulic of the Jadrolinija shipping company told Hina there were many tourists in the Split port as well, their number rising constantly since June. She said 56,000 passengers and over 13,000 vehicles were expected in the port this weekend.
“It’s a real July weekend. We are in constant positive growth and if it stays so, it will be excellent,” she said, calling for caution due to COVID so that Croatia was not declared a red zone like last summer.
