In February 2023, the most popular destinations in West Europe were Zurich, Paris, Athens, Vienna and Berlin.
In February 2023, Air Serbia carried 200,743 passengers, which is an increase of 150 percent compared to the same month in 2022, or 30.5 percent more than in February 2020, shortly before the coronavirus pandemic broke out. In the second month of 2023, the national airline operated 2,410 flights, an increase of 103.3 percent year over year. The average load factor was over 70 percent. These are the Serbian national airline’s best February results since it began operating under the name of Air Serbia.
“February is a somewhat shorter month and is considered to be the worst month for air transport in this part of the world. That did not stop us from carrying more than 200 thousand passengers from Belgrade, Niš and Kraljevo in February for the first time. February is the eighth month in a row which broke the record in terms of passengers carried. We have been recording historic results since July 2022, and judging by February, the growth trend continues. The addition of new destinations in our network will further drive interest in spring. Evidently, a dynamic summer awaits,” said Maša Vasović, Head of Revenue Management, Air Serbia.
In February 2023, the most popular destinations in West Europe were Zurich, Paris, Athens, Vienna and Berlin. When it comes to the region, Podgorica and Tivat saw the highest demand. There is still great interest for Air Serbia’s flights to Istanbul, as well as for the long-haul destinations New York, Tianjin and Chicago, to which the national airline will begin operating flights on 17 May, after more than three decades.
