In the wake of the collapse of Adria Airways, which at one point cut 60% of Slovenia’s international seat capacity, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has sets out its priorities when it comes to rebuilding its network. As reported on Ex-Yu Aviation, the airport’s General Manager, Zmago Skobir, said that efforts are now focused on those routes that are more important to the Slovenian economy and tourism industry, namely Frankfurt, Zurich, Munich, and Brussels, with Vienna seen as important but more difficult to arrange. Destinations in the former Yugoslavia are less likely to be resumed.
Looking to new markets, Mr Skobir continued to express hopes that direct flights to the Arabian Peninsula would be launched, although noted that efforts in this regard have already lasted six years.
