Adria Airways to launch Liverpool service

NEWS FLASH


Adria Airways will introduce two weekly seasonal flights between Ljubljana and Liverpool next year to replace its service to Manchester. According to Sean M, operations will launch on May 24, 2020 and run twice per week, each Wednesday and Saturday. As a result, the Slovenian carrier will discontinue flights to Manchester at the end of the 2019 summer season. Tickets are already on sale through the airline’s website.

  2. which is more probable on 24th may 2020:
    a) slovenia and croatia resolve their border dispute
    b) serbia recognizes kosovo

    1. Everything is possible. Can the poster anon@10:45 say where and if he will be then?

    2. possibility and probability are two separate things. all of the above mentioned options are pretty low on the probability list. and yes, as a matter of fact i know precisely where i will be on that date, of course if i don't get hit by a bus beforehand.

  3. Seriously now?
    If they can not make MAN work how will they make LPL?
    there are more Liverpudlians using MAN airport than LPL! What do these people thinking?

    1. They are moving simply because Liverpool Airport is cheaper than Manchester.

    2. Hallelujah. The Manchester service had been badly downgraded and if Liverpool is cheaper, so what? There is nothing wrong with stewarding their resources in this manner.

      The Adria/4K/Brnik/Fraport/Slovenia haters will continue to hate but the one Sunday flight became difficult to access because of block bookings by tour operators - TUI Lakes & Mountains and Inghams(Hotelplan). An extra flight per week will give independent travellers a greater chance to directly get to LJU which for those north of Luton is otherwise impossible.

      Manchester and Liverpool are 30 miles apart, with a massive catchment area all points of the compass. Sorry to pour cold water on all the doubters and whingers but these planes will be full, if, and a big IF, Adria can last the course. I hope they do.

    3. Who said MAN didn't work?

    4. If MAN service was working they wouldn't replace it with an airport 1/5 of its size...

      Anonymous at 11:11 the catchment area is not on "all sides of the compass" from Liverpool. It is in the coast. It is though on all sides of the compass from MAN>

    5. You not heard of North Wales? Yes, people actually live there. Nearest airport is Liverpool...

    6. Swansea airport is closer. And MAN has way better transport connections both the North Wales and to the whole of England.

    7. Happy taxpayer, if you have all of the answers and information, why aren't you working at adria, or enlightening them? :D

    8. I only need a map and wikipedia to see which airport locals prefer.
      Sorry if reality ruins people's fantasies.

    9. I thought you were an actual aviation expert, who knew details such as airport costs, incentives, O&D traffic, etc. Anyone can look at wikipedia and make uninformed conclusions. Enjoy telling airlines what they're doing wrong from wikipedia data; I'm sure they will be contacting you soon to ask you how they should plan their network :D

    10. Swansea nearer to Wrexham, Llandudno, Anglesey than Liverpool?! Ha ha, nice one! Dream on, dreamer.

    11. I am sure my mouse has more aviation knowledge than JP management!
      That is why even my computer screen understands what an idiotic decision it is to move from MAN to LPL.

  4. It is John Lennon Airport. Must be a success

  5. Nije mi jasno, kod nas se uveliko govori da Adria prestaje uskoro sa letenjem i da ce se organizirati zemaljski transport od nas do Ljubljane ?!? Ja uvijek gledam zivot kroz optimizam ali sam dovoljno star da znam da je letenje u ''open sky''atmosferi kompleksa stvar.

  6. Bravo Slovenija!

  7. JP management haven't a clue as to what they are doing. Moving flights to Liverpool will not work for them.

    1. It's a great move. Liverpool has a great tourist offer and Slovenia's popularity endures with the UK's more responsible and respectful tourists. It is a just a shame that you sit in your mother's cellar posting and seeking negatives where there aren't any. If Adria survive then this will be a success. Sorry to disappoint you!

    2. Never. It is ridiculous.

  8. Surely this is now the opportunity for a low cost operator easyjet, wizz or even Ryanair to introduce regular, year round Manchester to Ljubljana flight given the expense of getting from the North of England and Scotland to Stansted or Luton by public transport.

    1. Manchester has a rail station directly connected to all terminals with services to most towns and cities in the North of England, Glasgow and Edinburgh. It has a tram to central Manchester. Liverpool Airport has an Arriva bus to Liverpool South Parkway.

  9. Perhaps we will get incoming from the former Yugoslavia to watch the football.
    Better than flying into Ringway.
    Mind the gap.

  10. Great news, we'll be flying next year. I'd rather use Liverpool Airport than Manchester.
