More seats being sold on Jat
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.
