Touching on the topic of low cost airlines, Hodžić states that they have their own customer base. “We are a serious company which will celebrate 50 years of existence next year. Low cost airlines are appealing to passengers but above all passengers value safety, comfort, tradition and reliability”, he says. Unlike other carriers in the region Adria Airways has managed to take on low cost airlines with much success. Following Slovenia’s accession to the European Union in 2004, many low costers found the country as an attractive new destination. However, most were forced to suspend flights. In December, easyJet will try to buck the trend by introducing flights from Milan and Paris, to accompany the existing London service.
