STA, 31 May 2022 - Starting on Tuesday, the French carrier Air France will operate two daily flights to Ljubljana airport from Charles de Gaulle airport (Paris) during the summer months.
The carrier will fly to Paris from Ljubljana in the morning and in the afternoon. Passengers will be able to take a return flight to Ljubljana in the afternoon and in the evening, said an Air France spokesperson.
"The additional flight will bring greater connectivity to other Air France's destinations and the time slots are ideal for planning a weekend getaway," Air France-KLM's regional sales manager Ildiko McPartlin-Kiss was quoted in a press release, adding this would bring more foreign tourists to Slovenia.
Babett Stapel, managing director of Fraport Slovenia, is also pleased with the development of the Ljubljana-Paris flight connections. "We are very pleased we have managed to upgrade the long-standing partnership with Air France with a stronger presence on the market, and air traffic is even greater than in the pre-pandemic era," she said.
According to the carrier, they will offer flights to 200 destinations from Charles de Gaulle airport this summer, increasing the number of flights to 90% compared to their 2019 passenger traffic, while also adding some new destinations to their flight itinerary.
Ljubljana Airport is currently served by twelve other airlines, and the summer schedule is expected to include the launch of Israir flights to Tel Aviv and Air Montenegro flights to Tivat.
