  1. Would love to see them in some other airports like ZAG, LJU and why not even in BEG?

  3. ZAD will cannibalise most of the potential growth at SPU. They're growing really fast.

    1. The thing is that SAS flies up to 20 times a day to SPU. You cannot get any slots in the high season at SPU.

    2. True, lack of parking space for the planes is a big issue for Split"s even bigger results.

    3. I see the trend in disliking SPU at this portal, with main discourse being how ZAD (usually, but OMO can also help, when necessary) will curb SPU growth :)
      This is funny especially since these anons don't usually do their homework before posting:
      for example, as a comment to this piece of news, we see that ZAD will cannibalize SPU - with its total of 12 flights (!) with CRJ900, even though SPU has more than 20 SAS flights in a single day (Saturday) during the busy season of July and August.

    4. Soon enough you will see good part of those flights trickling down to ZAD. SPU is poorly managed airport in fact and they're lacking the basic infrastructure. All this will help ZAD in its growth.

      I don't have anything against SPU, except that I don't like the poor quality of service provided. That airport has simply outgrown itself and now it needs to shrink a bit to focus on improving things.

    5. As I said, homework should be done before posting :)
      Then you'd know that largest share of SPU passengers are hotel guests from Split area, central Dalmatian islands and Makarska rivijera - and you'd also know that they're not willing to add 3+ hours each way to reach their destination.

      Just out of curiosity, which poor service are we talking about, that will make pax opt for ZAD instead of SPU?

  4. Nice to see upgrade on TIV with A321.

    1. For TIV, SAS is quite certainly also counting on VFR/diaspora traffic, in addition to tourists. That's why the A321 I guess.

  5. Zadar is looking next year. Transavia is adding a weekly frequency too from RTM. This SAS flight is just for school holidays and wont take anything away from SPU, but it is a good start.
