If you are flying to Split, this Split airport transfers guide, will help you find all you need to know when traveling to Split airport (SPU).
Split airport will be your entrance gate to Croatia and Dalmatian islands and this is your guide to airport arrivals/departures, connections or transfers to/from airport to Split town or any destination of Central Dalmatia.
This airport handles more passengers within 24 hours than any other airport in Croatia, reaching over million of passenger, beating Dubrovnik airport in the south and Zadar airport on the north.
Your vacation will start at the moment your airplane lands on sometimes called Resnik or Kastela airport as it is only 2 km from Kastela riviera , 6 km from Trogir and 24 km to Split center.
The airport is mostly used during the summer months when in peak season reaches to 120 landings particularly on Saturdays.
Airport bus to Split is one of the most convenient and the cheapest way to reach the city center. This bus connection is handled by 'Pleso prijevoz ' company which makes part of Croatia Airlines carrier.
This fact means that all bus timetables are adapted to the Croatia Airlines timetable, but that does not mean that passengers of other companies can not use this bus.
The bus timetable varies depending on the time of the year but generally it leaves the airport 30 minutes after the arrival of a scheduled flight. The trip in one direction takes about half an hour.
On the map above you can see that airport bus can be found to the right when you exit the airport terminal. Keep in mind that this bus has no stops between the airport and final point, Split main bus station. If you don't know where is Split main bus station, here you can find more info!
In case you really need to get off somewhere on the way, I recommend to ask the driver whether it is possible or not, but before the bus departure and not after.
Tickets can be purchased on the bus and one-way costs 30 Kuna or a day ticket that you'll pay 40 Kuna.
Local bus line N°37 drives from the main road in two directions. On the map above you can see the bus stops on the main road, running to Split city and from opposite side of the road to Trogir town.
Local bus N° 37 to Split departs every 20 minutes to Split while during the weekends runs every 30 minutes in both directions. The one-way ticket to Split costs 20 Kuna (payable only in local currency on the bus or at the airport kiosk) and in 13 Kuna if you are traveling to Trogir.
If you prefer to have your transfer booked in advance this is the best way to be sure to have safe and reliable transfer.
This way of transfers are particularly convenient for passengers that don't want to bother with luggage without worries about missing their flight when they book this private transfer to/from Split Airport to in Baska Voda, Tucepi, Maksarska or Split ferry port.
Just give your hotel address and your flight details when making the booking. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you want to use a taxi than you'll find them just outside the airport terminal. The ride from the airport to Split downtown will cost you from 250 to 300 Kuna (33 to 39 Euro) and to Trogir about 100 kuna (14 Euro).
If you decide to take a taxi, follow my personal advice : Don't enter into taxi before you agree on the price with a driver.
