The CEO of Adria Airways, Arno Schuster, the airline's Chief Commercial Officer, Thomas Hoess, and the Ukrainian Ambassador to Slovenia have held talks over the resumption of flights between the two countries. The Embassy said Adria has expressed strong interest to launch services to Ukraine, with two sides discussing commercial cooperation. Mr Hoess previously said, “Ukraine has potential. We are now in negotiations with Ukrainian airports and are exchanging ideas. I cannot go into detail at this moment but we are discussing a direct service between Ljubljana and Ukraine”. The airline last operated to the country six years ago when it ran two weekly seasonal flights from the Slovenian capital to Kiev.
