LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), October 15 (SeeNews) – The number of passengers carried by Slovenia's troubled flag carrier Adria Airways fell 6% year-on-year in August to 131,500, the national statistical office said on Tuesday.

Adria's aircraft travelled 126.1 million passenger-kilometres in August, down 16% year-on-year, the office of statistics said in a monthly transport sector report.

Last week, the bankruptcy trustee of Adria Airways, Janez Pustaticnik, said he launched a tender for the sale of the company's property and property rights.

Interested bidders can submit their bids by November 10, indicating the price they are offering for the assets and the terms of payment, Pustaticnik said in a public invitation for expressions of interest. Bidders can file offers for all or part of the company's assets.

Pustaticnik launched the bankruptcy proceedings against Adria Airways on October 2, after the airline's management filed for the motion several days earlier.

The troubled air carrier suspended flights in the last week of September over lack of funds for running its daily operations.
