    What is going on? We need new LCC routes, we might not have a big diaspora but we Slovenes love to travel around Europe.

      Adria is going on

      Aircraft movements are down 11% due to Adria cancelling multiple destinations. Foreign carriers are all up though, so it will be interesting to see if Adria will fall below 50% at LJU for the first time this year.

    Nis flights will help. :D

  3. Let's hope LJU returns to growth in May.

    1. @idnas, unless you're reading something different to the rest of us, LJU is growing every month, including April 2019. No need to "return" to growth.

    2. You have a point. LJU is growing every month, since also +0,1% is growth :)
      Let's hope LJU returns to higher growth in May.

      @idnas, salute to that.
