Save this for later

In the first eleven months of this year Adria Airways carried more than 1,231,531 passengers, which is 16% more than in the same period last year. The total number of flights was also up by 15% - scheduled flights by 16% and charter flights by 11%.

In scheduled services, the most important sector, Adria operated 16% more flights in the first eleven months of the year and carried 1,036,435 passengers, which is 18% up on the same period last year.

Passenger growth in the second half of the year, if we compare it to the first half of 2008, shows that the effects of recession are already being felt, since growth is slowing down and is over 6% lower than it was at the beginning of the year, when higher growth could be attributed to Slovenia's EU Presidency. The passenger load factor has remained practically unchanged and stands at over 66% despite the fact that Adria is now operating larger aircraft.

In this context it is worth noting that a new CRJ 900, Adria's third, is due to join the fleet in the coming weeks.
