Slovak airline Danube Wings carried a total of 74,211 passengers last year. Compared with 2010, when the number of passengers reached 85,566, the figure represents a decrease of 13.3 percent. The number of passengers on it charter flights rose 2.5-fold to 38,767.

The airline issued a positive evaluation of its 2011 performance, nothing that the number of hours flown had decreased much more considerably (by 30 percent) than passenger numbers and that efficiency had therefore increased. Danube Wings flew exclusively its own aircraft.

Danube Wings chief executive Jan Rostaš commented, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that the company expected the number of passengers to drop as it now has fewer aircraft. This year, the company wants to benefit from its position on the Italian market and is preparing to launch new scheduled flights.

Danube Wings operates flights on the domestic Bratislava-Košice route twice a day on weekdays, and also flies to Croatia in the summer.
