Jat’s numbers continue to rise

More passengers flying with Jat in 2011
Jat Airways’ passenger numbers continue to rise in what is shaping up to be a solid year for the carrier, passenger wise. In April, the airline handled 88.597 passengers, an increase of 33% compared to the same, volcano stricken, month last year. In scheduled traffic the airline saw a 36% passenger increase with an average cabin load factor of 69%, a jump of 6%. The Serbian carrier has gained the upper hand against Montenegro Airlines on the popular Belgrade – Podgorica – Tivat flights. The airline increased its figures on those by 27%. In Euro-Mediterranean traffic passenger numbers were up by 37%.

On the other hand, Jat’s charter operations have been severely affected by the turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East as well as increased competition from other airlines. Jat operated 52% less charter flights than last April and recorded a 62% passenger plunge.

In the first 4 months of the year Jat Airways recorded a 19% passenger increase, the biggest increase out of the EX-YU’s “Big 3” airlines and the second best after B&H Airlines. You can review all the results from this year in the table below.
