Split Airport

Split Airport (SPU) is an international aviation facility servicing the city of Split. The second largest metropolis in Croatia, and a stunning coastal community, this is a wonderful city to explore if you want to get lost in the narrow streets of the old town, see the palaces, sit in the churches and wander along the spectacular port. Since Croatia has seen a rise in tourism, Split’s airport has come into its own, handling around two million passengers a year.

You will be able to use the currency exchange services, the ATMs, a post office, a first aid room, the lounges, and access the WiFi in the main part of the terminal. If you’re feeling peckish before or after your flight, you can pop into the airport’s sit-down restaurant, grab a snack in the café, or pick up a coffee at the coffee bar. If you want to purchase some gifts or souvenirs, you can browse the Mini Market, which sells local handicrafts, as well as reading materials and confectionary. Otherwise, you can dip into the duty-free area, to pick up some tax-free goodies.

Flights from Australia to Split are operated by Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and Air Serbia. All routes will require two stops at least, but these are often in exciting destinations like Vienna (VIE), Munich (MUC), Bangkok (BKK) and Hong Kong (HKG).

Travel Information

· The airport is about 24km outside of the city centre, but the drive shouldn’t be longer than a half hour if there isn’t much traffic. Take the Cesta Drive Franje Tudmana, then make two lefts to get to the Ivana Pavla II to Split. Join the D8 and continue on this road until you see the exit towards Luka Trajekt. Stay on the Ul. Zbora narodne garde, and then turn right onto the Poljicka cesta to head into the centre of Split. There are local car hire operators within the airport as well as recognisable brands like Hertz, Budget, Avis, Europcar and Sixt, so you can easily pick up your rental when you land, but if you’d prefer to book before you depart, then reserve your vehicle online with Skyscanner.  

· The bus services are very good between Split and the airport, with a Routes 37 and 38 running every 20 minutes, and taking 40 minutes to get into town. Expect the bus fare to come to 3EUR ($4.50) for a one-way fare.

· You can also take a bus to the seaport, and then take a boat to Split, but this method of transport is convoluted if you want to just get to the city, and is best saved for those looking to explore Dalmatian islands.

· Hopping in a taxi is certainly faster than the public transport options, but not that much quicker. The journey should take around 30 minutes, but cost about 35EUR ($52). Alternative private transit comes in the way of airport transfers, which can be done online and in advance, and are usually preferable if you are travelling in a group.
