The flight was quick and ahead of schedule.
The outbound flight was good but my return flight was awful.
Good, well constructed offering, well done
Long queues at check in because Easyjet several flights at a similar time
Bag drop was a little chaotic and could have done with a person organising. But generally check-in and flight was great.
Manchester is very busy - best to treat oneself to one of the lounged
Horrible long queues to clear customs at Split, took about 1hour.
It was late boarding but not too bad

Taxis are available throughout central Split and fares are generally affordable. If you’d rather drive yourself around, you’ll find a number of car rental services across the city.

Spend a few hours exploring its winding streets and soaking up the atmosphere of this unique building.
