Jat will operate flights to Portorož from April 15, 2010, every Thursday and Sunday with the regional ATR72 aircraft. Flights will be operated on a seasonal basis, although they will be extended throughout the winter if there is sufficient demand. Jat’s partners on this new service are Istrabenz Tourism, Bernandin Group, tour operator Kompas, the municipality of Piran, Slovenia’s Tourist Board and the tourism alliance of Croatian Istra. Jat announced that a one way ticket on the new service will set passengers back 30 Euros while a return ticket will amount to 50 Euros (excluding all taxes).
Jat confirmed that flights to Pula in Croatia will continue this summer despite the new service to Portorož. By the 2010 summer season Jat is expected to increase its list of destinations in the region as flights from Niš are expected to resume and flights to Ohrid in Macedonia will also be restarted. Portorož becomes Jat's second destination in Slovenia, after Ljubljana.
