Adria to announce Paderborn base

NEWS FLASH


Adria Airways and Paderborn Airport, in western Germany, are set to officially announce the opening of the Slovenian carrier's new base in the city in the coming days. In a statement to EX-YU Aviation News, Paderborn Airport said, "Adria Airways plans to operate flights from Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport to Zurich, Vienna and London in its summer timetable. The final details are currently being clarified, so we will probably be able to announce further information in the next few days". The airline is expected to base a fifty-seat Saab 2000 turboprop in the German city. Outside of Ljubljana, Adria has an aircraft stationed in Pristina. Last year, it closed down its base in Lodz in Poland. Over the past few years it has also considered stationing aircraft in Klagenfurt in Austria, as well as Verona, Bratislava and Bern.

    1. Smart move. They probably got a good deal with the airport and they are going for high paying business passengers who would pay extra to fly from the closest airport.

  3. Can anyone explain me why Adria desperately wants to open a base outside of Slovenia? I have read previously that they had opened many bases in Poland/ Germany and all of them completely failed.

    Thanks in advance.

    2. Thanks for the explanation.

      So they act as Ryanair at many airport, if I got it right. I see nothing sustainable there, if you fly from somewhere only because you get paid for that...
