The Slovenia Times

From Ljubljana to Finland for EUR 300



r 25,000 passengers each year from Slovenia to Finland, other Scandinavian countries and Asia, since it has good airline connections with this part of the world. This regular airline connection with Helsinki's Vataa airport is very important for Brnik, which has not had a connection with Finland since the 1980s. Vantaa Airport enjoys a low level of delays because of its size and location. Finnair offers not only good connections to Helsinki and rest of Scandinavia but also the fastest way to Asian destinations like Japan, China and India. It offers 60 weekly flights to ten destinations in Asia and is the third largest air carrier between Europe and Asia. This means Slovenia can expect business travellers and tourists from all of these countries; previously, they mostly came to Slovenia by bus from Venice. As Ralf Massermann, Finnair chief for Slovenia and Austria explained, Slovenia was chosen because of similarities between the two countries. There is great interest for trips to Finland, which has raised the prices of return flights, which should cost around EUR 300 without tax. The first flights were well occupied, but it is expected that the flights will be 65% occupied throughout the year. If interest for flights is higher than expected, Finnair is ready to send a larger plane: the Embraer 190, a modern and environmentally friendly plane, which uses less fuel and has space for 100 passengers.
