New airport between Split and Dubrovnik in the pipeline

By  Jan 14, 2017

A few months ago a group of investors visited in secret the city of Vrgorac in the Dalmatian hinterland seeking for a location to build a new airport in Croatia.

The group of investors who came on a behalf of a group of foreign investors from Europe and beyond were looking for suitable micro-locations for the construction of a new international airport in the region between Dubrovnik and Split. They also checked spatial plans of towns and municipalities in order to learn whether the area was suitable for the realization of their planned investment which would be bigger than the airports in Split and Dubrovnik.

On this occasion Ante Pranic the mayor of the city of Vrgorac commented, “The investors were looking for land which has at least 3 kilometres of flat land for the runway. With the vicinity of the Makarska Riviera, the A1 highway, two exits to the motorway, an international border, the A1 junction and the 5C corridor as well as the Ravca – Drvenik connecting road, we presented Vrgorac as one of the most important hubs in this part of Dalmatia’’.

During the first visit of the investing group Ante Pranic accompanied them to the location, and after only ten days investors returned back to the site with a team of geodesists.

“To show that they are seriously interested in our location, the investors came back for a third time to Vrgorac with a bigger team of experts and a drone with which they took footage of all of the location”, Pranic concluded.
