Adria to launch Germany - Poland flights

Adria heading to Łódź

Adria Airways will launch flights from Munich to Poland’s third largest city, Łódź, as the Slovenian carrier continues to expand its business outside of its country’s borders. Flights to Łódź will operate up to six times per week with the service to be inaugurated on March 30. Tickets will be put on sale next week. It will be the first time Adria will operate scheduled flights to Łódź, its second destination in Poland as the national carrier will launch services from Ljubljana to Warsaw on April 1. Flight details for the Munich - Łódź service can be found here.

Adria’s latest choice of destination continues to fuel discussion it will be feeding the network of its Star Alliance partner Lufthansa yet again. There are currently no flights between the Polish city and Germany. In addition to Ryanair operating flights to three destinations out of the city, there are no other airlines flying into Łódź. On April 2 Adria will launch services from Tirana to Frankfurt, providing transit passengers to Lufthansa. The flights complement Adria’s existing services out of Pristina to both Frankfurt and Munich, as well as Ljubljana.

Last year Adria announced it would open a base at Verona Villafranca Airport in Italy. The Slovenian carrier will initially feed the bases of airlines owned by the Lufthansa Group with flights to Vienna (Austrian), Zurich (Swiss International Air Lines) and Brussels (Brussels Airlines). The airline has been awarded rights to operate routes from Verona which have been previously dropped by Italian airline Air Dolomiti, which is owned by Lufthansa. Adria also discussed the possibility of opening a base in Klagenfurt in Austria this summer. Łódź is the latest destination in the Slovenian carrier’s major network expansion this summer which will see it launch flights from Ljubljana to Prague, Warsaw and Kiev in addition to the Tirana - Frankfurt service.

    5. Well, then there was no need to hide as an anonymous poster. ;) Furthermore, I highly doubt ex-YU 'stole' any of your articles. In the future maybe you should just send him an e-mail in stead of attacking him publicly. It just shows what a bad job your parents did raising you. No manners.

  2. This is laughable. A few months ago, LH cancelled most of its feeder flights from Poland to MUC due to unprofitability, and what happens? The totally unrelated JP has to take over.

    1. Why, clearly Adria can't compete with larger carriers must do what it can to attract revenue and if that means juggling destinations and routes, so be it.

      I think what Adria is doing is very smart and could only work for them in a long term, they saw and try to exploit the niche, in the EU all EU based airlines can operate from any airport with in the EU, as long as they meet EU norms.

      I see no problem in what Adria is doing, and it could be quite profitable for them, they're one of few airlines that fly to Loodz and connecting it with Munich is a smart move, they can take monopoly RyanAir has on this route.

      Delete
    2. Because competing with RyanAir is exactly what a legacy Balkan airline wants to do.

      Excellent strategy.

    3. Not to mention that they will attack Ryanair with their CRJ-200. Brilliant move, especially in a market that is notoriously low-yielding.

      Delete
    4. It is not attacking Ryanair at all ... it is opening the Stara alliance door ... ant it is going to be CRJ 900

      Delete
    5. Hmm so if it's about opening the Star Alliance door then how come the local alliance partner did not do it? Heck, Lot doesn't even fly there while SAS is pulling out and Ryanair is cancelling Liverpool. That should be enough of an indicator to as what kind of market Lodz is.
      Lot has a rather good network when it comes to linking Polish cities with Vienna, Munich or Frankfurt. If there was any money to be made in this city then Lot would have been there already. Unless Adria knows something we don't.

  4. OT: Aerodrom "Nikola Tesla" u Beogradu imao je u januaru 29 odsto veći broj putnika i 33 odsto više poletanja i sletanja u odnosu na isti mesec prošle godine.
    Napredak je ostvaren velikim delom zahvaljujući obimu poslovanja i širenju operacija nove nacionalne kompanije Er Srbija, saopštio je aerodrom.

    Na beogradskom aerodromu je u prvom mesecu ove godine opsluženo 270.784 putnika, što je povećanje za više od 60.000 putnika.

    Pritom je ostvareno 4.147 poletanja i sletanja, što je porast od 33 odsto, dok je u kargo saobraćaju promet robe povećan 20 odsto u odnosu na januar 2013.

    Ovim rezultatima su potvrđena očekivanja poslovodstva da će beogradski aerodrom u 2014. ostvariti najveći napredak, odnosno zabeležiti najveći porast broja putnika i obima saobraćaja u odnosu na sve prestoničke aerodrome u Evropi.

    1. In order to achieve 4 mil pax, BEG needs to have I think 13 % pax increase per month. And now it has more than as double as that. Cant imagine the July and August figures...

    2. It's going to be a huge year for BEG if this continues.

    3. I can't wait to see Air Serbia's results for January! What an impressive start.

    4. And just the other day our friend, the expert from Croatia was telling us how both Air Serbia and Belgrade airport will start stagnating in 2014. lol

      Delete
    5. As someone who recently started working for Air Serbia, I have to say that the best part of it all is that we get the same contracts all government employees get. Like that we are well protected from capitalist tendencies of some larger corporations among which are the three Middle Eastern airlines. :)

  5. Adria goes where Lufthansa points.
    Btw... This "news" could easily go into "flash" ones on the left side, I wouldn't give that much importance to this ridiculous move from Adria.

    3. Okay, I am gonna keep being silent about BEG 29% growth, and we will see at the end of the day how interesting this topic would be (according to comments) and compare it with other topics. For me it is better to discuss about anything than not to discuss at all.

      Tomorrow, BEG will be the topic for sure. Pozdrav

    4. Ok, then you can tell us, since you're so smart, what was the condition last year with Jat (how many airplanes did they use, how many passengers did they have, etc.) and how important is 29% passenger growth with 33 % growth in airplane operations. Thank you in advance!

  6. Very interesting things happening above Belgrade now. 2 planes did a go-around and 2 were on hold circling...

  7. No. Etihad plane entered the runway 12 and was on hold to takeoff... Either it was AC that made mistake and told them to enter runway or Etihad did it without permission.
    That's why first plane had to go around, and because of it, Etihad couldn't takeoff and had to wait another to go around, other 2 planes were holding, so when Etihad took off, then they all landed normaly.

  8. Well,todays topic is Adria Airways and i think its important news that Adria gives up on the Slovenian market only to become a Air Dolomiti 2.0.
    Sad,very sad indeed.
    Especially when you consider that its still a state owned airline and operates without profit.
    There seems to be no public outcry in Slovenian media at all,which only proves how the people there have either become dumb or simply gave up on everything.

    1. Small reminder for you. It is 8 o'clock PM, it is >saturday< and this topic has less than 30 comments. Some of those are JU/BEG related, so maybe 23-25 are fully on topic.

      So if someone has some info, for example codesharing to Sankt freakin Petersburg, why wouldn't he/she share it? If the topic itself is not so interesting or there are not so many Slovenes or ppl interested in Slovene aviation, what is the problem? Then we should leave the comment section empty??

      as you said hijacking each and every topic is being hijacked by JAT and BEG ... this blog has really become a boxing ring ... every one in the region worth nothing and everbody who looks out of the box is marked as a mentaly ill and problematic person.

    5. Well, Air Serbia and Belgrade airport news are the most popular, they 'sell'. For the owner of this blog the most important thing is to keep his main audience interested so why should he shoot himself in the foot?

      Furthermore, I do not understand why there weren't any ex-YU people complaining when those people were constantly posting about Air Serbia delays? I guess it's not that it's being hijacked but it's that you can't stand positive news coming out of Belgrade. I almost feel sorry for you.

    6. I think the most of the guys who complain about BEG and JU off topics are Croats. People do not find this topic interestiiiiiing!!! It does not say anything against the admin, who is like some kind of a journalist, really good one, with good connectios with people in aviation business. Simply, this topic does not attract attention. When there were Croatia related topics that were interesting, or about Sarajevo or Skopje topics, people who are Serbs at this blog, commented on the topic. Here, nobody is from Lodz or Munich, there are few Slovenes who actively participate, and people discuss about other things...

      Why is just Serbs this and Serbs that, nobody today would say anything about Croatia related topics....

    1. Not surprising. Aeroflot is supposed to officially takeover the airline this March.
      However, I am really happy that Air Serbia has decided to keep on cooperating with Aeroflot. It's a win-win situation.

      Delete
  12. If Air Serbia does not open BEG-LED this year then Rossiya Airlines will do it.
    That would be a missed opportunity for JU.
    Remember that Air Baltic had good loadfactor on its Belgrade flights and most of them were transfering to Peterburg.

    1. This year Air Serbia should "attack" some other airlines if they want to be successful.
      What I mean by that is that they should start to fly to some destinations before some other airline opens it.
      By that I mean especially Madrid (Iberia), Saint Petersburg (Rossiya - Aeroflot), Hamburg (Germanwings) and maybe Helsinki (Finnair) or Ankara (Turkish Airlines).
      Also they should go double daily for some routes (Amsterdam, London, Berlin) so that they keep other airlines from starting to fly there.

  13. Good for Adria. it is the only ex yu airline that had the balls to do anything out of its home base borders. For that it should only be applauded. Haters will always find something to complain about... I love that Air Serbia is becoming strong ...brings new connections to the region which is great, why hate that,...or the fact that Adria is doing its part for that matter...all great news..

  14. In December Air Serbia
    - 24% more passengers
    - 51% more operations
    - 49% LF

    that is very bad!!!! Yield must be catastrophic!

  15. I am confused!!!
    Couple of blogs ago "Maribor Airport Unusable" gets 3 comments, 15,000.000 EURO invested and some government controled jerks can"t agree on something!
    Adria Air is flying Lodz-Munich..gets over 50 comments on this blog!!! Wake up guys....where"s the priority here??? Its costing Adria zero, nada, zip, nothing..Star Aliance, LH, Lodz airport and city are throwing in a few Euro cents....in the meantime Euro Millions are wasting away in Maribor, Slovenia"s second largest city!!!
    I keep saying on this blog I am not anonymous just a stupid Canadian who brings more stupid Canadians to spend money in Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia Hercogovina, and Montenegro..but sure what do I know when all I read about on these blogs are petty jelousies and in-fighting!! Honestly I think EX-YU Aviation News brings back to many EX memories...change it to somrthing more up to date!!! The word EX,,,thats ex-wife, ex-job, ex-lover, ex-pat..whoops thats me !!!
