Adria Airways passenger numbers up 17%

In the first ten months of this year Adria Airways carried more than 1.149.450 passengers, which is 17% more than in the same period last year. The total number of flights was also up by 15% – scheduled flights by 16% and charter flights by 11%. In scheduled services, which is the airline’s most important sector, Adria operated 16% more flights in the first ten months of the year and carried 960.809 passengers, which is 20% up on the same period last year. In the month of October alone, Adria carried a total of 109.413 passengers, which is 4% more than in October 2007. Adria operated 2.187 scheduled flights, 12% more than in October last year and a total of 2.385 flights, 9% more than in the same period last year. The number of passengers on scheduled flights by the end of October stood at 97.932, which is 7% more than in the same period last year.

If the same trends continue it is certain that in terms of passenger numbers Adria will come as the third best national carrier inside the EX-YU, following Croatia Airlines and Jat Airways. This will be the third year in a row it will have such a rank.
