Each year the number of direct flights to Split has constantly been increasing, with every year setting new records in passenger numbers.

This increase in air traffic means some airlines have decided to introduce new direct connections to Split airport from many European destinations.

The period from May to September is the right period to find the most flights available. Most people are looking to book flights to Split in July and August, with most tourists first looking for direct flights to reach Split, the capital of Dalmatia.

In the period of low season (November to March) there aren’t many direct flights, but every year from April to October new connections are being introduced from a number of cities in UK, Italy, France and Germany.
