The 2010 summer season was a period of recovery for most in the aviation industry. In the third quarter (July – September), Croatia Airlines saw a significant passenger decrease, Adria Airways saw a mild single digit increase as did Jat Airways. It should be noted that the Icelandic ash cloud drama affected all three airlines in April while Croatia Airlines was also hit by a cabin crew strike later on in the summer. B&H Airlines carried 55.177 passengers in the third quarter, an increase of 42.3% compared to the same period last year. So far this year the airline has processed 109.368 passengers, an increase of 66%. Montenegro Airlines has not made its passenger figures public, although it did report that it had a strong summer.
Care to predict what will happen this winter? Will Croatia Airlines’ negative trend change for the better? Will Adria beat Jat in the race for second largest EX-YU airline in term of passenger numbers and will Sarajevo’s notorious airport fog prove a headache for B&H and its passengers? Send your thoughts.
