In the Winter Timetable 2019/2020, that will come into force October 27, 2019, three new airlines have announced their operations from Ljubljana Airport – Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines and SWISS will reintroduce four of Adria Airways connections. The current carriers will substantially strengthen their flights from Brnik in the Winter Season. Even though the Winter Timetable is still to be finalized and will be published right before the end of October, we can already share some new additions to it.
The Lufthansa Group Airlines recently announced it will be connecting the Zurich, Brussels, Munich and Frankfurt hubs with Ljubljana Airport. SWISS will be the first to establish new flights to Zurich starting on October 16, Lufthansa will start operating flights to Frankfurt on October 27, and to Munich on November 1. Brussels Airlines will follow with flights to Brussels on November 4. Travelers from Slovenia will be able to benefit from Lufthansa Group’s worldwide network. All connections are now available for booking, you can read more here.
Air France will double its flights to Paris – instead of six weekly flights they will fly to the French capital twice daily (except Saturdays) and they will often also operate their flights with bigger aircrafts (Embraer E190 or E195 instead of E170).
LOT Polish Airlines will fly to Warsaw eight times instead of seven times weekly and is already responding to bigger flying demand on its connection by operating it with bigger aircrafts (including Boeing B737).
Air Serbia has introduced new flights to Niš already in the Summer and they will strengthen their connection to Belgrade from 11 to 17 weekly flights. The carrier will also connect Ljubljana through the Serbian capital to Skopje, Tirana, Sarajevo and Sofia. They are operating their flights with bigger aircrafts (Airbus A319 instead of ATR) from time to time as well, to meet higher demand.
Passengers will be able to fly to Podgorica with Montenegro Airlines six times a week instead of four. Aeroflot will strengthen its connection to Moscow by operating bigger aircrafts – they will offer 140 seats per flight with Airbuses A320 (instead of 90 seats with Sukhoi).
In the Winter Timetable passengers will be able to continue to fly with the following airlines to next destinations: Turkish Airlines to Istanbul, easyJet to London Gatwick, London Stansted and Berlin and with Transavia to Amsterdam.
We will report on our channels about other possible additions for the Winter Season as soon as new information becomes available.
The number of passengers traveling through Ljubljana Airport increased by 7.7% last year and by 3.7% in the first eight months of this year.
We strongly believe in the continued growth of traffic at our airport, thus we are investing in modernization of airport infrastructure and increasing our capacities. In five years, Fraport Slovenia will invest more than € 40 million in investments, half of which will be invested in a new passenger terminal, that will enhance the standard for passengers.
