On the other hand, Croatia Airlines reported a lacklustre August. What was once the airline’s strongest month is no more. The Croatian carrier reported a passenger decrease of 8.2%. With an average load factor of 70.5% it was level with other major EX-YU carriers (with Adria Airways at 70.9% and Jat at 70.6%). However, the decrease in passenger numbers can be somewhat explained by a 9% cut in capacity and a 12% cut in the number of flights.
September results for all of Croatia’s airports will be published soon.
