In June 2021, Air Serbia increased its market share at Nikola Tesla Airport, carrying a total of 54.1 percent of passengers who used the services of Belgrade Airport during that month. In addition, the Serbian national airline carried 170,413 passengers in June, which is the largest number of passengers since December 2019 and an increase of 68 percent compared to May this year.

Carefully monitoring the changes in travel restrictions and demand, Air Serbia operated up to 38 destinations in scheduled traffic during June. The most popular destinations of the Serbian national airline last month were Tivat, Podgorica, Paris, Moscow, Zurich and New York.

“The results we accomplished in June are a product of strategic planning, efficient recognition of business opportunities, and a quick reaction to changes within the market. We are pleased the situation is slowly heading towards a positive direction and the demand for air transport is constantly increasing. As a regional leader, we remain committed to intensifying the volume of air traffic wherever we can, in order to continue to provide strong connections between cities in the region, in Europe, as well as the entire world,” stated Jiri Marek, General Manager Commercial and Strategy at Air Serbia.

During the previous month, record-breaking results were also reported in regards to the number of visits to the Air Serbia Premium Lounge.

Thanks to record results during May and June this year, Air Serbia recorded a market share of 52% at Belgrade airport in Q2 2021.
