Adria Airways carried almost half a million passengers in the first half of this year.

Author: Adria Airways - The Airline of Slovenia

In the first six months of the year, Adria Airways d.d. implemented a planned 8% reduction in the total number of flights (scheduled and charter) while maintaining the passenger numbers achieved in the same period last year. Passenger numbers in the first six months of this year were 448,427.

In terms of scheduled flights, passenger load factor in the first six months of the year was 10% better than in the same period last year and reached 70.4%. Operating results achieved in the period January–June 2013 were €5.9 million better than in the same period last year, above all thanks to lower costs (an 8.7% reduction), while revenue remained at the same level as last year. Because of the seasonal nature of our business, current operating results are still negative and stand at €2.6 million (€8.5 million in the same period last year), but with the start of the summer season, thanks to positive business from May onwards, results are improving and we expect to end the financial year with positive results, in line with the plan and forecasts.
