Danube Wings transported a total of 31,340 passengers in the three summer months of June, July and August, an increase of 4.2 percent, or 1,300 people, from summer last year, the SITA newswire reported on September 19.
The count is based on summer charter flights and the carrier’s only scheduled route between Bratislava and Košice. In total, 3,687 passengers travelled on Danube Wings on regular seasonal connections from Bratislava and Košice to Croatian destinations Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik and Rijeka during the summer. The number of passengers on these flights grew 9.8 percent from a year ago. The flight to Split was almost completely sold out this year, similarly as last year, the airline reported.
Last year and this spring, Danube Wings cancelled its scheduled flights from Bratislava to Poprad and to Basel, Switzerland.
