As winter schedule comes into effect in air traffic on 29 October, it will be possible to fly to 18 destinations from Ljubljana airport on scheduled flights until the end of March. The flights are operated by 15 carriers.

Compared to last winter schedule, the list of direct destinations has been expanded to Luxembourg, Skopje and Prishtina, and for the first time British Airways will fly to London Heathrow from Ljubljana in winter season.

The recently introduced Luxair's flights to Luxembourg and Wizz Air's to Skopje continue into the winter season.

Apart from British Air, EasyJet and Wizz Air will operate flights to London, to Gatwick and Luton, respectively, according to Fraport Slovenija, which runs Ljubljana Airport.

Compared to last winter season, flight frequency will increase to Istanbul, Vienna, Zurich, and Belgrade. For the first time since 2006, Turkish Airlines will operate two flights a day to Istanbul this winter.

Lufthansa will keep its daily flights to Munich but will offer more seats, and will also fly to Frankfurt twice a day, including early in the morning.

Air France will operate eleven flights a week to Paris, Air Montenegro will fly to Podgorica three times a week, and Air Serbia will fly to Belgrade 19 times a week and two times a week to Niš.

British Airways will operate four flights a week to Heathrow and Brussels Airlines four to Brussels, while EasyJet will fly to London Gatwick five times a week.

One flight a day to Dubai will be operated by Flydubai and GP Aviation will fly to Prishtina twice a week.

Daily flights to Warsaw will be provided by LOT Polish Airlines, while Lufthansa will fly to Frankfurt twice a day and to Munich once a day.

Luxair will offer two flights a week to Luxembourg and Swiss Airlines a dozen flights a week to Zurich. Transavia will fly to Amsterdam four times a week. Wizz Air will fly to Luton twice a week and to Skopje three times a week.

Fraport Ljubljana managing director Babett Stapel said the number of passengers this year was to exceed the initially planned 1.2 million by the end of the year. "The annual passenger growth is thus expected to exceed 20%."

By the end of the year, charter flights will also be available for organised trips to Jordan, Morocco, the Azores, Tenerife, Cape Verde, Malta, Majorca, Madeira, Porto, Lisbon, Hurghada and Rovaniemi.

In the summer season, AirBaltic will launch new flights to Riga and Lufthansa will add another daily flight to Munich to fly to the Bavarian city twice a day.
