Trade Air to station jet in Ljubljana

NEWS FLASH


Croatian ACMI operator Trade Air plans to base an Airbus A320 jet in Ljubljana over the upcoming summer season, from April until November, in order to operate charter flights on behalf of Slovenian tour operators. The defunct Slovenian national carrier, Adria Airways, handled the bulk of leisure flights from Ljubljana over the past few years until its demise last September. Trade Air ran charters from Ljubljana to Hurghada in Egypt during the recent Christmas and New Year holiday period.

    Meanwhile another Croatian airline thinks it's still early to react in any way to Adria's demise. Trade Air seems to be a well run business, they also operated TLV-BEG flights on behalf of Israir from time to time.

    They seem to be very pro active. But the name...oh boy! Who chose it?

      I know they were using the the name Sun Adria for a while on the aircraft. Personally I would like to see a name that reflects the Croatian coastline. I know It may sound boring, and it was used before but Air Adriatic sounds a lot better than Trade Air. Any other name ideas?

    All the vultures are trying to grab the meat from LJU. It seems that 2020 will be quite busy for the airport and once the new airport is ready in January 2021, things will become even more dynamic.

      I was not aware that carriers were not introducing flights to LJU because they were dissatisfied with the already existing terminal building, so thanks for the clue that they were waiting for the opening of the new building in 2021

      And you did not quite understand my sarcasm dear, since my point was that carriers are not waiting for a new terminal in LJU to launch flights there.
      If there was any demand, they would (have) launch(ed) flights to LJU with or WITHOUT a new terminal, nobody would wait until 2021 to do that.

      No need for sarcasm, dear. LJU is currently expanding like never before with many new arrivals and mostly from prestigious, legacy carriers and big names such as Iberia, British.
      Not to mention the solid position of the LH Group including SN and LX.
      Finally, we see a nice strong position from TK as well.

      LJU is a ghost airport. Employees happy that they can sleep in and and enjoy marathon coffee breaks. Two prime hotels in Ljubljana closed in the meantime. I think this is beyond sarcasm. Just sad, sad.

    7. Which hotels closed in Ljubljana? Had no idea. Would really appreciate answer.

    8. @anon 12:29: I'd also like to know which hotels in Ljubljana "were" closed. SInce I live in Ljubljana and have never heard of any hotel being shut down.

      The guy doesn't say but his competence is no doubt legit. Quote: "GJ, predsednik Združenja hotelirjev Slovenije, opozarja, da je ljubljanski turizem izrazito sezonske narave. »Trenutno smo v nizki sezoni in lahko povem, da sta dva prenovljena top hotela v centru Ljubljane zaprta, kar se ni zgodilo še nikdar v zgodovini Ljubljane,« pravi.' unquote.

      They were only capable to dig it into the ground.

      What market? Please! Oh, you are calling 'competition for government subsidies' a market. That one is in full swing - true. Baboons dealing with a Rolex. Smh.

    As for Trade Air - extended arm of CA. Though a successful one and without the national budget support.
    As for LJU - nice quiet airport in a nice country that has a strategy of an ant.
    As for an even quieter airport - go Google for MBX...
