Adria Airways is set to connect Ljubljana Airport to seven new destinations next year. Slovenia's leading regional carrier announces that with its next summer timetable (from 25 March 2018) it will continue flights to the Ukrainian capital Kiev and at the same time connect Slovenia to six new European cities and popular holiday destinations.
In the 2018 summer season it will thus be possible to fly with Adria Airways to Hamburg, Germany's largest port and "Gateway to the World" (four times a week on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays). Passengers will also be able to fly from Ljubljana Airport to Geneva, the diplomatic, business and scientific centre of the world (three times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays), to Bucharest, a city with the multiple styles of different historical periods (four times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays) and to Sofia, a young, dynamic and modern European capital (three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays). Adria aircraft will also connect Ljubljana to Dubrovnik in Croatia, the pearl of the Adriatic and filming location for the popular series Game of Thrones (twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning on 28 April), and to the Croatian island of Brač, famous for its lush greenery and sandy and gravelly beaches (twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning on 28 April). More information is available on our website www.adria.si, where tickets are already on sale.
"At Adria Airways we want to maintain our position as a reliable airline and good market player. I believe that by introducing these new connections we will also be opening up new opportunities for both business and tourism," says Adria Airways managing director Arno Schuster. Adria currently connects Ljubljana to 17 destinations around Europe with more than 190 scheduled flights a week.

"[The year] 2018 will be key for Adria Airways and this is why we are happy to follow our growth strategy, and for summer 2018 we will announce seven new destinations out of Ljubljana. We will start flying to Hamburg, Geneva, Dubrovnik, Sofia, Otopeni [Bucharest], Brač, and the last destination, that we will continue, is Kiev. This is good for the market, this is good for the customer, because it gives more variety, more choice. We have seen the demand already in 2017 and this is why we believe that 2018 with seven new destinations will be good for the market."
