“I am glad that we are continuing the trend of passenger growth, even though February is traditionally the weakest month in the aviation industry. The results accomplished show that we have made the right decisions and that our strategy was properly established. We are approaching new opportunities for further expansion - we look forward to the summer season, which begins on 31 March, and the numerous new destinations which await us from as early as April and June,” stated Boško Rupić, General Manager Commercial and Strategy, Air Serbia.
