    1.85 million pax for this year now quite likely. 160K+ improvement on the last year.

      That's just silly.... I've traveled through LJU 5 times this year and max waiting time for security was 15 minutes, when I had a morning flight. All other times it was less than 5 minutes.

      Not saying LJU doesn't need a new terminal soon, but checkin-to-gate time is still on the faster side compared to most other airports.

      Many of us travels more than twice weekly. At 6am you might have a long run before you make it.

    Ljubljana Airport needs an urgent modernisation or they just can claim that they are a retro airport.

    They can probably get some extra money by renting the space for filming the movies about eighties.

      don't think it is that bad, Zagreb airport's old terminal yes, but Ljubljana looks ok, departure area on the 1st floor is ok, looks like any major airport, arrival area, yes, is bit small, and looks like a provincial airport, but its not that bad.

  9. Dont forget that Aeroflot starts daily service at the end of the month :)
