Flights to Berlin and Stockholm a welcome addition
Adria Airways began scheduled flights to Stockholm on Thursday, 23 April. Scheduled flights to Berlin began the following day. Adria will fly twice a week to Stockholm Arlanda and three times a week to Berlin Tegel. Both inaugural flights were accompanied at Ljubljana Airport by a symbolic cutting of the ribbon, mementos for the first passengers and a water salute from the airport's firefighting vehicles.
Adria's aircraft will fly to Stockholm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to Berlin on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. A more detailed timetable is available here.
Adria Airways CEO Mark Anžur offered the following comment on the new services: "For the moment bookings are very good, if we compare them to passenger numbers on other routes in the same period. We are satisfied, although it is a fact that every new route needs time to get going." Iztok Franko, Adria Airways marketing director added that "both new scheduled services represent a new milestone in raising Slovenia's profile and offer many opportunities to strengthen cooperation in all fields, particularly business, tourism and cultural activities. At the same time our range of scheduled services from Ljubljana to European capitals is growing even more diverse. We believe that the new services will be a success."
Aerodrom Ljubljana also welcomes the new services. Commercial director of Aerodrom Ljubljana Janez Krašnja gave the following statement: "Northern Germany and Scandinavia are interesting markets and we have noted for some time that there is a demand for direct flights to these regions. We therefore welcome these new services. We believe that passenger numbers on Adria's flights between Ljubljana and Stockholm and Berlin will be good. With these services Adria is enhancing its network of flights from Ljubljana and increasing our shared competitiveness."
With the 2015 summer timetable, Brnik is serving more destinations than it did last year. Each week, nine scheduled carriers operate more than 160 direct scheduled flights to 27 destinations.
