Wizz Air to Land at Ljubljana Airport after Four and Half Years


Wizz Air will fly from Ljubljana to Charleroi and back on Mondays and Fridays and to Luton and back on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The new connections, with one-way tickets from EUR 22.99 upwards, are reported to be well occupied, as today's flight from Brussels is to bring over 150 passengers to Slovenia on one of Wizz Air's 180-seater Airbuses A320-200.

The airline plans to transport over 70,000 people to and from the Ljubljana Airport per year.

Wizz Air's arrival spells good news for Slovenia's biggest airport, which is struggling with decreasing numbers of passengers. The Hungarian airline said it would introduce more routes, including to northern Germany, the Iberian Peninsula, Italy and Scandinavia, should London and Brussels connections prove successful.

Meanwhile, Ljubljana Airport is trying to attract more budget airlines to Slovenia, but past deals have proven unsuccessful, with Wizz Air discontinuing the Brussels route and Easyjet the Berlin, Paris and Rome routes.

The share of budget airlines in Slovenia stands at 7%, which is why Ljubljana Airport operator Aerodrom Ljubljana hopes that cooperation with Wizz Air and Easyjet, which flies to London's Stansted, will expand in the future.

Wizz Air's routes are the main novelty of the airport's timetable for the winter season, which boasts 185 regular flights to 17 European destinations per week as of last week
