When to leave Makarska to catch a 4pm flight from Split?

We have a Tue afternoon EU-flight departing at 4pm from Split airport this July. When should we be leaving Makarska in order to be in time at the airport? We plan to use public transportation.

Is there a direct connection or do we need to transfer in Split?

Pointers to bus schedules etc. much appreciated.

Br,

A

As far as I know you would need to get a bus to Split and then catch the airport bus in Split. There is a good number of buses going from Makarska to Split, Promet is one company. The journey should take around an hour and a half, then another half hour for the airport bus from Split to the airport itself. I think you should allow at least a good 2 hours for the journey. Especially in July as the roads will be busy.

Would you consider spending your last night in Trogir and not have to worry about using public transport to catch your flight on time?

I would be tempted to get a bus at 10 or 11, have lunch in Split then get the airport shuttle. Or, if you have not been to Trogir, you could get a bus from Makarska to Trogir have lunch there and get the local bus from Trogir to the airport.

Thank you all for your helpful replys, and sorry for not coming back earlier.

@barrymanilow: as a matter of fact we had almost similar plans (last night in Split - did that last year) to what you suggest, but unfortunately we need to leave one day earlier than expected, so we decided to do it this way and canceled the last night reservation.

@apt22: Where exactly does the airport shuttle go from in Split? Last year we couldn't figure that out and ended up using the local bus. With the luggage and no air conditioning and it taking the loooong route to airport, I must say that was an experience :-)

The airport shuttle in Split leaves in front of the port at the ferry ticket station a few feet walking towards the palace from the bus-train station.

It leaves from close to the Jadrolinija box office that is near to the green market but still by the Riva side.
