Low-cost airline Norwegian has launched a twice-weekly service between Jože Pučnik Ljubljana Airport and Copenhagen.

Norwegian will initially fly between the Slovenian and Danish capitals Mondays and Fridays, and during the peak summer season Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Airport operator Fraport Slovenija expects high demand for the service.

The connection with Copenhagen is particularly exciting because the Danish airport serves as a hub, connecting Ljubljana to numerous other destinations, Fraport Slovenija managing director Babett Stapel said as the inaugural flight touched down on 29 April.

Ljubljana-Copenhagen is the third new route secured as part of a state subsidies scheme to improve Slovenia's air connectivity after the collapse in 2019 of flag carrier Adria Airways.

AirBaltic launched flights to Riga under the same scheme last week.
