Split airport Resnik is 24 km away from the city center and 6 km from the town of Trogir. It is a small international airport with only one runway and one terminal, which simplifies coordination through the airport area. There are several ways to reach Split from the airport.

If you happen to miss their bus line, you can always catch one of the intercity lines (buses number 37 and 38) between Kastela and Split. It is important to know that the buses on the intercity lines are often crowded, so if you have a lot of baggage, it is recommended that you seek other means of transportation towards Split.
