Slovenia’s Adria Airways carried 65.600 passengers, an increase of 2.4%. The airline’s load factor was the best of the three, standing at 60.9%. Adria also recorded more flights and more capacity compared to January 2010. However, financially, Adria is still struggling. Last week, the national carrier completed its financial restricting plan and distributed it to banks in hope of securing more loans. The airline had a 12 million Euro loss in 2010.
Croatia Airlines reported the largest passenger increase in January. It handled 95.500 passengers, an increase of 4.8%. Its average cabin occupancy stood at 56.5%. The number of operated flights was up, although capacity was down.
Finally, Jat Airways reported a 2.9% increase in January. However, its February results were more notable, handling 67.635 passengers, an increase of 24%, as was reported here last week.
