Ljubljana Airport registers October growth


Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has recorded its 25th month of consecutive growth by welcoming 161.446 passengers in October, representing an increase of 5.1%. The figure was achieved despite a slight dip in the number of aircraft movements which stood at 3.290, down 0.9%. During the January - October period, Slovenia's busiest airport handled 1.585.798 travellers, an improvement of 9.3% on last year. Aircraft movements were up 4.2% to 30.572. Ljubljana Airport's General Manager, Zmago Skobir, recently said, "I think that we are successfully fighting for our share in the market, and we are also supported by the favourable economic climate in Slovenia and the increasing visibility of Slovenia as a tourist destination". In October, operator Fraport Slovenia launched tender procedures for the construction of its new multi million euro passenger terminal. The deadline for the submission of bids is this Thursday. Construction is due to begin next year.
