France Week and the 10th anniversary of Air France flights to Paris

It has been 10 years since Air France began offering flights from Ljubljana Airport to Paris.A connection was made between the Slovenian and French capitals on 15 November 2004.In the ten years that followed, over half a million travellers have travelled through the Ljubljana Airport with Air France.We are marking this occasion with special offers and surprises for our travellers.

Air France was one of the first airlines to begin offering flights to Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport following Slovenia’s accession to the EU. Since 15 November 2004, over half a million travellers have travelled through Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. Air France’s 2014/2015 winter timetable offers six flights per week on a 76-seat Embraer 170S. Travellers can continue their journey to a number of global destinations via Air France’s hub, Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. An even wider network of flights and connections is made possible by Air France’s membership of SkyTeam, an airline alliance that gives customers access to a global network of over 16,000 flights per day to a total of 1,052 destinations in 177 countries.

Zmago Skobir, President of the Management Board of Aerodrom Ljubljana, marked the important milestone with the following words: “This ten-year period clearly shows that Air France is a stable partner for Aerodrom Ljubljana. In years that have witnessed a noticeable drop in air traffic due to adverse economic conditions, the number of Air France flights and passengers has remained relatively constant. The flights are also important because they put Slovenia on the map as a tourist destination that is accessible by air. The route is not only important as a direct connection between Ljubljana and Paris. Through its hub at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, Air France provides excellent connections to a number of destinations throughout the world, both with its own flights and its membership of the SkyTeam airline alliance. I believe that cooperation with Air France also holds great promise for the future. On the occasion of this anniversary, I would like to extend to them my congratulations and gratitude for their excellent level of cooperation.”

Air France is also including travellers in the festivities. On its website, the airline is offering specially priced flights and has unveiled a new advertising campaign, “France is in the Air”, which brings together the traditional and the modern. The airline also has a special surprise in store for those travelling through Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. During France Week, guests in the passenger terminal can enjoy a delicious sweet that France is famous for - Macarons - while listening to the unmistakable sounds of French music. In cooperation with Aerodrom Ljubljana, Air France is also organising a prize draw where participants can win two round-trip tickets to Paris and other attractive prizes. The application is available on Aerodrom Ljubljana’s Facebook page and can be accessed here.

“I am very proud to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Air France in Slovenia by bringing a bit of France to Slovenia. I’m looking forward to celebrating the 20th Anniversary.” stated Ildiko Kiss, Country Manager for Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Air France-KLM.
