First Choice Launched New Direct Charter Flights to Slovenia for Winter 2006
Slovenia was new to the First Choice Snowsports programme in Winter 2005/06, introducing flights to Kranjska Gora. This year, First Choice Holidays was delighted to announce the launch of the first ever UK charter flight to Ljubljana for the Winter 2006/2007 ski season.

The return flight will depart Ljubljana at 1110 and will return to London Gatwick at 1220 from the 23rd December 2006 to 24th March 2007.
First Choice continues to invest in Slovenian ski resorts, with the introduction of the charter with 150 seats and a brand new First Choice operated Kids Club at the Hotel Alpina in Kranjska Gora. The Kids Club is a brand new offering in Slovenia which includes an evening crčche, half or full day childcare programmes with qualified and experienced nannies.
A special Slovenian package including tuition and a daily escort to the slopes has also been developed for First Choice, working with the local Ski Schools.
