Slovenia to see biggest air travel decline in Europe


Slovenia will see the greatest decline in commercial flights and capacity in Europe this month despite government attempts to alleviate the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic through aid and subsidies. In February, both traffic and capacity at Ljubljana Airport will decline over 90% compared to the same month last year. Three carriers - Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia - have confirmed flights to Ljubljana. Despite initially deferring its planned service resumption to late April, Aeroflot has now rescheduled its Ljubljana service for February 12, with one weekly flight from Moscow each Friday operated by the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. However, these are subject to government approval, with Russian authorities yet to issue the go-ahead for the service to be restored. Even with Aeroflot’s potential return, traffic volumes at Ljubljana Airport will plummet over 90%.

The Slovenian government has introduced a range of measures in an effort to mitigate the negative impacts of the global health crisis on the country’s aviation sector. It has put into effect the first of three airline subsidy schemes for the upkeep of existing routes and has provided five million euros in aid to Ljubljana Airport’s operator Fraport Slovenija, however, more funds will likely be needed. Recently, the government also reduced taxes for the use of aviation-related infrastructure at airports in the country. The state is also still considering whether to invest funds into a new national carrier.

In response to the latest waves of Covid and risks associated with new variants, many states across Europe are imposing stricter travel restrictions, which strongly discourage air travel unless it is for essential reasons only. As a result, demand for air travel is greatly suppressed and airlines are having to dramatically reduce their capacity accordingly. “It is clear that the months of February and March will be exceptionally low across Europe, except for cargo, some business traffic and skeleton schedule services. Even April is expected to perform very poorly with only a limited pick-up for the Easter period. Flights in Europe will probably only be around 25% - 30% of normal. It is a complete disaster for European aviation - an industry that’s already on its knees”, the Director General of Eurocontrol, Eamonn Brennan, said. Individually, Slovenia will be the most affected market this month. In comparison, Montenegro, which has lost its national carrier, will see its traffic decline 75%.

    I live in Ljubljana. Airport is less than 30 minutes drive, but it is in other municipality. Penalty to go to another municipality is 400€. If you travel for buissines reason that is exception, turism travel is not.
    Reason for so extreme drop are very strict restrictions for trevel. At this time we are lucky to not have national carier, and so we don't pay for flying empty planes.

In no way any of these Balkan airlines is going to be a serious competitor to Lufthansa, so Germans don't care and just ask for some pretext to show that providing subsidies here complies with regulations that Montenegro and other Balkan countries agreed to adhere when joining European Common Aviation Area.

      Are you suggesting that Lufthansa paid in Germany less per pax or per landing/departure than other carriers? The tariffs at airports are public info in the EU, so it it crystal clear that you are making things up.

      Contrary to what you say, you see this particular type of hidden subsidies not in Germany, but in the ex-Yu. In the EU the airports are forbidden to provide a discount based on the total volume of pax by a given airline (it remains legal to provide discounts for new routes or for the INCREASE in the number of pax).

      You suggested that hidden subsidies are given in Germany via a fee structure at the state owned airports and we already established that this is not true. Now you try to water down your point as to pretend you were right.

      The most funny thing is that at this portal you often read in the comments section how great it is that that there are national carriers that may transport things like medical equipement or vacccins during covid. Many people actually think this is done by these national carriers for free or just at the cost of fuel.

      Boy, this is the easiest way of shuffling state money to these national carriers! These flights are crazy expensive for the tax payers! Only tax payers not having a national airline are free to negotiate down the cost of such flights. Others are robbed.

      And yes, you are right in saying that also Germany provides a lot of these hidden subsidies.

  26. Looking at pure financial analysis of the Airline sector from, airline industry has been hit like never before, this will have long term ramifications and some would be permanent. I think recovery will not be in 2022 but much longer, probably 2023/2024, by that time sadly some of the airline-related workers will not come back so you will have permanent losses in terms of employment across the segments of the sector, from pilots to food catering. Some airlines will not survive and you will see that not now, but probably first year of some recovery i.e. late 2021 or 2022 when industry start seeing the rate of recovery and then determines the orders etc. Without any spin, 2020 has been a 'death arrow' for the global airline sector. They will recover but some casualties will be permanent.

    No, Slovenia is the ONLY country in Europe where you only have 2 daily flights from an international airport. Period! Stop posting bull*hit about corona being the reason. Lack of a national carrier and an uninteresting market is the only reason for the appalling results.

    Once again, if you want connectivity by air, pay for it (as you do for everything else in your life). Either you pay a foreigner who won't give you anything in return (apart from a great on-board service) set up a new carrier.

      Be careful what you wish for. Those 4.99 tickets come at a price. You sure would not want to lose your job to a much cheaper worker, now would you? That is what LCCs (Ryanair, Wizz) are doing. It's much cheaper to base a Bulgarian in London and pay him/her 1000 eur more than the minimal wage in Bulgaria than to fork out a proper British salary (comparable to British Airways).

      Travel restrictions are not the only reason for situation which we have at LJU...

    I just don't see things getting any better at LJU without either a national airline or a carrier basing a plane there. The new subsidies for foreign airlines does very little in attracting new ones. It's mostly to keep the ones flying.

      But people on here said that getting rid of JP was the best thing to happen to the airport.

      I think offering the subsidies is smart. After this is over airlines will be more determined to quickly axe underperforming routes. So the extra cash will definitely help and keep them flying until demand returns.

      Considering everyone was about to increase frequencies to LJU before covid, I don't think any routes were nonperforming.

      People were cheering for the demise of Adria under the pretense of saving taxpayers money yet now everyone is happy the government is subsidizing foreign airlines.

      Still tens of millions of EUR cheaper than sending money into national carrier blackhole.

      Of course it is, we will spend 5 mio € to subsidize foreign airlines and will get nothing in return. This is waste of money. For those 10 mio loss which JP produced we really had good connections from/to LJU.

      Let's make it tens of billions of EUR. It sounds better and more dramatic. And I also pulled my number out of youknowwhere.

    I hope LJU will be able to find some sort of solution of the upcoming months.

      That pretty much depends on what the government will do. If they continue subsidising foreign airlines, I wouldn't be so sure about it.

    Slovenia is a peasant country like most of eastern europe and everyone bends the knee over there. Even if ruler that is prime minister is a condemned criminal (twice). So I guess they will be isolated for a very long time.
