Belgrade Airport posts record April resultBelgrade Nikola Tesla Airport has recorded one of its best April results on record. The airport handled an impressive 240.282 passengers, an increase of 38.8% compared to the same month last year. The result is not surprising as many flights were grounded last April due to the closure of European airspace, as a result of the volcanic ash cloud. However, the airport also posted an increase compared to its previous April record in 2008, beating it by 25%. So far this year, Serbia’s main airport welcomed 770.653 passengers. For comparison, last year it handled 633.408 passengers until the start of May, an increase of 21.6% in 2011.
The most popular routes from Belgrade in April were Zurich with 20.086 passengers, Podgorica with 18.506 and Vienna with 18.117 passengers. The airport’s management has announced it is looking to slash airline handling fees for a second time this year on the back of these good results and thus attract more airlines.
