Belgrade Airport handles 5.6 million passengers in 2022


Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport registered its third busiest year on record in 2022 by handling 5.611.729 passengers. The figure represents an increase of 70.8% on the year before but is down 8.9% on the pre-pandemic 2019. The airport’s recovery rate during 2022 is above the European industry average and outperformed the airport’s earlier estimates it would handle some five million travellers during the year. The number of commercial aircraft movements stood at 65.644 during the year. In a statement, operator VINCI said, “Traffic growth at Belgrade Airport in Serbia accelerated rapidly in the fourth quarter - peaking at a 13% increase in December - thanks to flights offered by Air Serbia, Wizz Air and Turkish Airlines”.

    What's impressive is that even with all this growth JU market share in December dropped to 49%. It means everything performed well which is impressive.

  7. It is worth noting that a large number of potential passengers opted for INI and even KVO flights instead, which would have pushed sjed both BEG and JU numbers up for this year at that location.

      Anonymous00:41 KVO and INI do have a reasonable potential, but you have to take into consideration that AS is not positioned on the market that well to allow its fleet to go around, waste time and risk its performance in its main hub in BEG. Maybe a BEG-KVO flight would be nice in order to attract transfer passengers from Serbia`s important population centers like Kraljevo, Cacak and Novi Pazar (the only city in Serbia with young population that has a potential for traveling). But being realistic, we will probably see that but when the economy is strong enough, the demand grows and AS has the fleet to support that.
