Aeroflot is coming
The winter timetable will bring a new daily service to Moscow. After 15 years, Aeroflot is returning to Ljubljana Airport, with a route served by Sukhoi Superjet 100s. Aeroflot’s good network means that the service to Moscow will be a great starting point for Slovenian passengers for onward travel to destinations across Russia, other countries of the former Soviet Union, and Asia. The first flight will be on Sunday, 28 October.
