Air Serbia registers busiest October

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia recorded its busiest October on record, handling almost a quarter of a million passengers during the month. The airline welcomed 240.696 travellers on board its aircraft, representing an increase of 13.4% compared to last year. The average cabin load factor during the month stood at 75%, up three points. The airline’s dedicated charter brand Aviolet also registered a strong October, during which its figures improved 30.1%. “We are very satisfied with the results achieved and we are convinced the trend will continue in the coming period. New destinations, launched in June as the result of careful strategic planning, proved to be the right move which generated significant growth. We are also happy that, with our results, we had contributed to the development of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, whose growth reached almost 10% in Q3 2019”, Air Serbia’s CEO, Duncan Naysmith, said.

  7. Da li ce uspeti da namaknu LF na 80% za celu godinu? Bila bi to odlicna vest za AS koja polako ide ka profitabilnosti. Ne zaboravimo da je na LF u oktobru uticala i linija za Budimpestu iz Nisa koja je bila izuzetno losa.

    1. Would be interesting how the loadfactors for INI are. Does anybody have more info about loadfactor of INI routes?

  8. The main problem with the INI route to Budapest was the timing of the flights. It's a good idea for weekend trips, but the dates were on Thursday and Tuesday, which made them unworkable.
