Welcome to the official Eurobasket 2013 airport

The Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport prides itself on being the official airport for Eurobasket 2013. The attention of passengers and visitors is being drawn to the largest European basketball event to be hosted by Slovenia, from 4 to 22 September, by many official championship logos and, during the airport’s open house, they were also cheered by the mascot, Lipko. 

As in many other places in Slovenia, a strong basketball vibe is now in the air at the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. Passengers are greeted on their arrival or departure by a large Eurobasket 2013 logo on the glass facade of the passenger terminal. The theme of the event continues as they walk through its interior, and occupies much of the advertising space in the public part of the airport.

During its open house, the airport was also visited by Lipko, the official championship mascot. He cheered the passengers and visitors with hugs and handshakes, mingled with the people taking a tour of the airport behind the scenes and tried his hand in the various roles of the airport staff. They were delighted by Lipko’s image, which embodies harmonious coexistence of nature and people, and hence Slovenia as one of the greenest countries in Europe.
