Jat hits 500.000 passenger mark

On Monday, June 16, 2008, Jat Airways carried its 500,000th passenger. This is more than ever before. Last year, Jat carried its 500,000th passenger on June 25, in 2006 – on June 30, in 2005 – on July 24, in 2004 – on July 2 and in 2003 – on July 8. Jat Airways expects to have carried one and a half million passengers by the end of the year. This would have been a new record compared to the last year's figure when it carried one million 300,000 passengers. Also, this would see Jat well on its way toward definitely achieving one of its strategic goals – that of regaining the position of regional leader in commercial air traffic.

Bad news for passengers
Due to the global increase in oil prices, like many other airlines, Jat Airways will increase its ticket prices on charter flights and select scheduled services. Ticket prices on charter flights will increase somewhere in the range of 8 to 14 Euros and select regular service charges will increase somewhere in the range of 1 to 7 Euros.
