Air Serbia has the busiest September and handles two million passengers
Air Serbia recorded its busiest September since rebranding in 2013 and welcomed more than two million passengers so far this year. The carrier welcomed 300,000 travelers in September, up 69.8% from the same month last year, and also surpassed its 2019 pre-pandemic performance. During the month, it operated 3,400 flights including 2,900 regulars and 500 charters. The carrier welcomed its two millionth passenger of the year on October 5, compared to 1.58 million travelers for the whole of 2021. A record 300,000 passengers were welcomed on charter flights. Like last year, the first quarter of 2022 was significantly affected by coronavirus-related restrictions and measures in most European markets, so the majority of Serbian citizens were unable to travel to most of the continent.
Commenting on its operational performance, Air Serbia General Manager for Commerce and Strategy Boško Rupić said: “Even though the festive season is almost over, the summer season is still underway in the airline industry. . As usual, the demand for flights in September is slightly lower than in July and August, which were record months in terms of the number of passengers carried, but remains very high for this time of year. Thanks to the trust shown by our passengers, in 2022 we have achieved excellent results”. He added: “In September, we carried our twenty-millionth passenger since we started operating under the Air Serbia brand, and now also our two-millionth passenger since the start of 2022. We are heading for new records. , constantly striving to expand our offer with new and even more attractive destinations”.
