    Fantastic growth, congratulations to JU, FR and BNX.

    This summer charter flights should help as well. Will be interesting to see what their autumn surprise will be.

    Loadfactors must by awful, 12.460 passengers on 279 flights comes to just 44 pax per flight!
    Not just JU with the ATR but especially FR who uses 737-800s must be suffering.

      Well you are very wrong because of that number a total of 159 were "private" flights. There were only 108 commercial flights.

      That's 54 return flights. So in fact Ryanair has an excellent LF.

      108 commercial flights carrying 12.460 means that there were 112 passengers per flight. ASL is expected to have low loads so it is using the ATR.
      FR is doing better but I don't expect for these new routes to have 80% load factors. That is why subsidies and low airport charges are needed.

      Just my2cents

    34 flights of RYR and 21 flight ASL and LF awful?????

    10% of the BEG traffic for 1 month...simply amazing!

  8. LF is more than 90%. For some flights they could sell more tickets than for B787-800. I suggest to certain Anonymous to book a flight to or From BNX. But obviously, But unfortunately, Balkan minds still function like before

  9. Great news!

    this will be very interesting summer for BNX
