Direct Stansted to Split flights begin in May and continue until October, meaning you'll need to take a connecting service if you're looking to travel to this Croatian city outside of these months. If so, a stopover in a city such as Cologne or Stuttgart is likely, while services also fly via Vienna and Zagreb.
