Jat closes in on Adria

Jat’s passenger numbers continue to increase

In the first 7 months of the year, Jat Airways carried 675.507 passengers, an increase of 16% compared to the same period last year. Jat is now less than 2.000 passengers away from overtaking Adria as the former Yugoslavia’s second busiest airline. Adria managed to “overthrow” Jat last year although looks unlikely to do so for a second successive time. Croatia Airlines remains unbeatable with the airline already topping 1 million passengers.

Boosting Jat’s numbers was a strong July as the airline carried 156.508 passengers, an increase of 8%. In scheduled traffic the airline’s figures jumped 14%, in charter traffic they were down 25%, while Jat’s average cabin load factor soared to 80%, an increase of 6 points. In the first 7 months, the load factor has averaged 65%. Jat’s Montenegro network continues to see numbers significantly increase. In July the airline improved its figures to and from Podgorica and Tivat by 14% while Euro Mediterranean traffic saw numbers surge 13%.
