On the other hand, Adria Airways handled 1.170.235 passengers, which is 104.468 more than Jat. Its average cabin load factor stood at 65%. However, if only scheduled traffic was to be taken into account Jat would have come on top ahead of Adria. Despite Croatia Airlines seeing a decrease in passenger numbers in 2010, it is still ahead of its EX-YU counterparts, carrying well over 1.5 million passengers in 2010.
