More passengers flying with Jat

Rise in March traffic
Jat Airways has had another good month, passenger wise. In March, the national carrier carried 79.408 passengers, an increase of 20% compared to the same month last year. The average cabin load factor stood at 59%, an increase of 4%. The airline also increased the number of flights by 12%. Services to Montenegro continue to see more passengers than last year (+ 28%), while charters continue dwindle (- 90%). In the first 3 months of the year, Jat carried 215.643 passengers, an increase of 14%.

In order to stave off a low cost assault, primarily by Wizz Air, Jat recently launched a promotional ticket sale. The airline has sold 23.033 tickets. Over 4.000 tickets were sold for regional flights while over 18.000 for Euro-Mediterranean services. Despite the good passenger result, Jat Airways’ acting CEO said the airline ended 2010 with a 25 million Euro loss. The management promises a better financial performance this year.
