Croatia Airlines and budget firms easyJet and Wizzair link Split directly with London. The city has bus and rail connections with Zagreb.
Split Airport is 20km (12.5 miles) north-west of town between Kastela and Trogir. A Croatia Airlines bus is usually waiting (30kn, 30min journey time). If you're flying back on Croatia Airlines, its buses depart 90 minutes before each flight from the stop by the Jadrolinija kiosks at the harbour end of the Riva. For other airlines, check bus times at the Croatia Airlines office on the Riva or phone 021 203 119/021 362 997 — there's no timetable at the stop. If no buses coincide with your flight, then you must take a taxi or city bus No.37 from bay No.3 or No.4 at the suburban station at the corner of Domovinskog rata and Gunduliceva. Buy a ticket from the station kiosk and stamp on board. The bus (every 20-30mins from 4am-11.30pm) goes to Trogir — the stop by the airport is not named as such, so keep a look out. A taxi costs 250kn-300kn.
