Montenegro flights underperforming for Jat
Jat Airways has ended its seven month passenger growth streak, after seeing figures decline in October. The Serbian national carrier welcomed 107.130 passengers during the month, down 0.5% on last year. The decline has been attributed by a fall in flight operations of 8%. The average cabin load factor for the month stood at 72%, also down 2%.
Flights to Montenegro were the carrier’s worst performer with figures sliding 27% although this was caused by an earlier planned cancellation of up to 37% of its flights to the country. These cancellations have continued throughout November. On Euro Mediterranean services passenger numbers increased 2 % while charter flights saw a strong 70% increase.
So far this year, Jat has welcomed 1.192.651 passengers onboard its aircraft, up 12% compared to the same period last year while the cabin load factor has averaged at 75%, up four points. Over the year passenger numbers to Montenegro decreased by 7%. On scheduled flights the airline’s figures improved 8% while growth of 10% was seen on Euro Mediterranean flights. The airline recorded a 96% passenger boost on charter flights.
