More seats being sold on Jat
Serbia’s national carrier, Jat Airways, has recorded good results in the traditionally busy August. The airline carried 155.163 passengers, an increase of 6% compared to the same month last year. If only scheduled traffic were to be counted, numbers increased by 10%. The national carrier is making a noteworthy comeback on its flights to Podgorica and Tivat in Montenegro. Passenger numbers increased by over 15% on these flights. In Euro-Mediterranean services, numbers were up 9%. Overall, the average cabin load factor totalled 78%, an increase of 5% compared to August 2010.

In the first 8 months of the year, Jat Airways has carried 830.670 passengers, an impressive increase of 14%. If only scheduled traffic were to be counted the increase bumps up to 18%. By the end of August, the average load factor amounted to 69%, which is also more than the same period last year when it totalled 62%. Jat is operating a fleet of 12 aircraft on a daily basis after 2 grounded Boeing 737s returned to the fleet this August. Currently, another 2 aircraft are grounded, 1 ATR72 and 1 B737-300. After their return to the fleet, which is expected soon, the airline will finally have its entire fleet in the sky after many years.

Meanwhile, with 3 weeks to go, no airline has purchased the tender documentation to create a successor to Jat. Furthermore, the auction of the airline’s catering division, originally planned for this Friday, has been delayed until September 23.
