Split Airport (SPU) is the main airport serving Split, Croatia's second largest city and the unofficial capital of Dalmatia.

But with roots dating back to the Roman Empire, this city is as much a delight for culture buffs as it is for those looking for some sun. To find the cheapest flights to Split, you can make use of Skyscanner's monthly search tool, which will help you narrow down which time of the year is the cheapest to fly.
