Winter changesThe 2011/2012 winter season begins on October 30, 2011 and will last until March 24, 2012.
As has been previously reported, Adria Airways will suspend services to London, Paris, Stockholm and Warsaw from Ljubljana, flights to Dusseldorf from Priština and the Vienna - Frankfurt service. Despite earlier announcements that it would suspend its service to Toulon, the airline just recently decided to keep the flights throughout the winter. Compared to the 2010/2011 winter season, the airline will cut frequencies to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Istanbul and Zurich from Ljubljana as well as Frankfurt from Priština. Flights to Belgrade, Skopje and Moscow will see a frequency increase, with Belgrade up by two flights on last winter, Skopje up by four and Moscow up by one.
Jat Airways will suspend its long running service to Dubai despite significant passenger numbers on the route over the summer season as well as last winter. Since most passengers on the Dubai flights continue to Australia with Emirates, the airline receives additional compensation from the Dubai based carrier for selling its tickets, which in turn covered the flights' operational costs, making the suspension questionable. Flights to Rome, Larnaca and Tivat will see their frequencies reduced with Jat operating only a one daily service to Tivat, down from two daily last winter season. The airline will resume flights to Paphos in Cyprus from November until the end of February with the service from Belgrade operating via Tel Aviv and the return flight operating nonstop. Athens will see a frequency increase. Flights to the Greek capital will be boosted with three additional services although the airline will reduce capacity by operating the ATR72 instead of the Boeing 737-300.
