Easyjet is back in Slovenia
Easyjet is the eighth airline to resume the services at Slovenia's central airport after the epidemic. On Sunday, its Ljubljana-Berlin route was renewed and will operate once per week until the end of the summer season depending on the epidemiologic developments. Today, the first flight from London Gatwick is scheduled to arrive at the airport, said Fraport.
The British carrier does not plan on resuming the Ljubljana-London service in August though, but the route will be up and running again from 4 September on, two times per week, Mondays and Fridays. In October, additional links with London Stansted and Luton will be added.
Meanwhile, British Airways will resume links with London Heathrow in September. Moreover, Brussels Airlines will restart operating flights to Brussels that month, Windrose to Kiev and an Israeli carrier to Tel Aviv.
On Saturday, Lot Polish Airlines will return to Ljubljana airport, resuming services to Warsaw. In mid-August, Aeroflot is set to return as well, linking Ljubljana and Moscow.
Fraport Slovenija is pleased to see the return of a number of airlines, but also urges the state to provide assistance to renew and maintain Slovenia's network of air links, including using funds to promote Slovenia as a tourist destination, thus boosting tourism and the economy as well.
Ljubljana airport has already seen the return of Air Serbia (services operating seven times per week to Belgrade), Montenegro Airlines (five times per week to Podgorica), Lufthansa (twelve times per week to Frankfurt), Wizz Air (twice per week to Belgium's Charleroi), Transavia (twice per week to Amsterdam), Air France (daily to Paris) and Turkish Airlines (three times per week to Istanbul).
Charter flights are also already scheduled to Dubrovnik and a number of Greek islands. However, aviation site Sierra5 reports that Thursday's Croatia Airlines charter flights between Ljubljana and Dubrovnik were cancelled after three years due to a lack of passengers.
