The first aircraft, type DC 6B, landed at today's Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport on Christmas Eve in 1963. Regular air traffic started on 9 January a year later.
The first foundation work began in 1952, and a good decade later, with the landing of the first passenger plane at Brnik Airport, a completely new junction of opportunities began to grow.
Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport is one of the leading airports in the region with a gravitational area of more than 4 million inhabitants, connecting the Balkan region with Western and Central Europe.
Due to its constant growth and development, Ljubljana Airport is an important hub for passenger and freight air transport, as well as distribution and logistics services.
