History

The airport was opened 25th of November 1966. The apron had dimensions of only 200 x 112m and had 6 parking positions. Planned capacity was 150,000 passengers. In 1968. the traffic was already at 150.737, and in 1969. at 235.000. In 1967. the apron was extended for the first time, to accommodate 10 aircraft. The largest pre-war passenger numbers were achieved in 1987. totaling in 1,151,580 passengers and 7,873 landings. Around that time the new terminal was built, and the apron was extended once more. In 1991. the passenger figures dropped almost to a zero, as the war broke out in former Yugoslavia. In the years that followed, most of the traffic were NATO and UN cargo planes, such as the C-5 Galaxy, MD-11, Boeing 747 and C-130 Hercules. After the year 1995. the civilian traffic figures started rising up again, and finally in 2007. surpassing the 1987. record. In 2005. the terminal got a major facelift, adding one more gate, the glass facade, as well as the steel/fabric palms illuminated by multi-color LED-s. Now the airport is mostly used during the summer time, as the city of Split is a large tourist destination. More and more widebody aircraft are landing at the airport. Saturdays are the busiest days of the week, with over 100 landings and 20,000 passengers.

Expansion plans

In the last few years the summer peak in airport activity called for an expansion of the airport capacity. Starting in autumn 2009. and running through the year 2014, major overhaul works will be conducted at Split. By 2014, Resnik will have an expanded terminal, with 4 jetways. A new, larger apron will be built, because the present one is insufficient.


Expansion of Split Airport will happen in 2 phases.

  • Phase One, 2009-2011
    • Expansion of the airport ramp by 45,000 m²
    • Purchase of Croatian Air Force and Defense land.
  • Phase Two, 2012-2014
    • Construction of a new 25,000 m² airport terminal with 4 jetways
    • Adding a new taxiway, parallel to the runway
    • Construction of an 85,000 m² airport ramp
