Slovenia is getting more and more connected.
In the last few years, the number of passengers who pass through one of Slovenia’s international airports has increased significantly. As an example, according to the Statistics Office the passenger traffic has increased 43% in comparison to 2006, when over a million people passed through Slovenia's airports. In 2016, a large majority of air passengers arrived in and departed from Slovenia via the Ljubljana airport, the office announced, while the total number of passengers in all three airports in the country reached 1.5 million.
Germany, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Switzerland, Belgium and France are the most popular destinations for travellers from Slovene airports. Over the years, traffic has increased the most to Germany, Poland and the Netherlands, whereas it has fallen to destinations in Serbia, Turkey and Egypt.
Slovenia has three international airports –- Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, the Airport of Edvard Rusjan Maribor and Portorož Airport.
