Split’s airport is about 30km away from Split. It is very small but quite pleasant, situated close to the sea. When you arriving you feel like falling into the sea. All questions upon arrival can be directed to the information desk, which is open from 05:15 – 23:00. Follow the steps leading down from the main hall to find a toilet and a baby-changing station. Toilets can also be found by heading upstairs from the main hall.

Changing currency: Splitska Banka (Open 07:30 – 19:30) has an exchange office and it can be found at the far end of the main hall. There are also two ATMs in the same hall.

Calling home: You can purchase a phone card at the newsstand (open according to flight times). There are public phones in two locations: first, in the main hall next to the Internet point (which offers free Internet, incidentally!); and second, upstairs between the two doors leading to the men’s and women’s toilets.

Split Airport, perhaps notoriously, has a terrible selection for eating and drinking whilst you’re waiting to board. There’s really only one little cafe/snack place that’s rather overpriced and, rather annoyingly, seems to be the only place you can buy water at. Much better to bring your own food and drink – or wait until you’re on board your plane and then you can get ripped off by the low cost airlines. The ‘duty free’ shop is a bit better, and there’s a decent selection of alcohol (wine and spirits), chocolates, ciggarettes and even some foodstuffs such as prsut, paski sir (Pag cheese), olive oils and more.
