Split airport - SPU, is located in Kaštel Štafilić, 24 km from the centre of Split and 5.5 km from the historic town of Trogir. Despite its small size, the airport it actually handles around 2 mil. passengers a year, of which the wast majority arrive in the summer season, especially in July and August.
Getting to Split from airport Split:
The only city which has a shuttle bus connection to the airport is Split, but despite this being a fairly cheap solution its drawback is that you get dropped off at the bus station in Split. This might not always be an optimal solution if you carry luggage and need to hassle getting from the bus station to your accommodation. Another alternative is to take a taxi from the airport or as we obviously will recommend, pre order a private transfer. A private transfer has the following advantages:
⇒ Door to door service (No long walks with heavy suitcase)
⇒ Cheaper than taxi
⇒ No waiting at the airport, the driver is there when you arrive, even if your plane is delayed.
⇒ Vehicles available for larger groups as well (you always travel together)

NOTE: The travel time from the airport to Split is under normal circumstances 25 minutes, but in July and August it can take quite a bit longer due to heavy traffic towards Split. If you travel from Split towards airport Split, you will have to leave Split 40 minutes to 1 hours before you have to check in. You can also ask the driver on the outgoing trip for advice regarding travelling back to the airport.
