Air Serbia carries 71% more passengers in January, year over year
In January 2022, Air Serbia operated 1,641 scheduled and charter flights, via its home airport in Belgrade, as well as airports in Niš and Kraljevo. Despite the strong influence of the coronavirus Omicron strain, more than 90,000 passengers were carried, which is 71 percent more than in January 2021, which was also affected by the winter wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are extremely pleased to have started this year with performance growth, which is the result of our adaptation to life with the coronavirus. By increasing the number of passengers carried in January by as much as 71 percent compared to the same month last year, we have shown that we are ready for the strong expansion we are expecting in the coming period. These results also prove that our decisions, as well as our strategy, are on the right path, which we believe will help us to be stronger in the coming months, to the mutual satisfaction of both us and our passengers”, said Boško Rupić, Head of Sales at Air Serbia.
In January, the Serbian national airline launched new PSO routes from Niš Constantine the Great Airport and Kraljevo Morava Airport, thus enabling passengers from different parts of the country to reach European destinations in the Air Serbia network.
During 2021, Air Serbia saw a traffic increase of 39 percent, carrying 83 percent more passengers compared to 2020, while the number of passengers in January was 53,457.
