July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Aerodrom Nikola Tesla AD, the main airport serving the Serbian capital Belgrade, said its first-half passenger traffic rose 11 percent from a year earlier as the number of air carriers increased.
The number of passengers advanced 1.48 million from 1.34 million a year earlier as Qatar Airways, Croatia Airlines, Air One SpA, Turk Hava Yollari AO, or Turkish Airlines, and Norwegian Air Shuttle AS started new flights or increased frequency, the state-controlled airport said on its website. The number of flights rose 1.8 percent to 21,361, while cargo traffic dropped 2.3 percent to 3,393 tons.
