Ljubljana Airport reaches 21% of pre-pandemic traffic


Ljubljana Airport handled 57.338 passengers in October, representing a decrease of 42.2% on the same month in 2019. It should be noted that in October 2019, Ljubljana Airport felt the full brunt of Adria Airways’ bankruptcy. Lufthansa operated the most flights out of Ljubljana last month, followed by Air Serbia and Air France. With 12.060 seats on sale, Lufthansa had the most capacity on offer from Slovenia’s capital, followed by Turkish Airlines (7.794) and Brussels Airlines (7.268). During the January - October period, Ljubljana Airport welcomed 331.012 travellers through its doors, representing a decrease of 78.6% on the same period during the pre-pandemic 2019. The Slovenian aviation market is still seeing one of the slowest recoveries in Europe from the height of the Covid-19 crisis last year, ahead of only Finland and Ireland.

    Interesting, 21% at the time when we are running EU presidency. So we can expect to come on 30% of pre-pandemic traffic in like... 5 years?
    Wake up government and do something!

      The effect of the presidency is much lower than expected. A lot of events were moved to virtual.

      I agree that it is lower than expected, but still there were some additional on that account. And I am quite sure that all those meetings were not moved to virtual only because of Covid situation but big part of that is on lack of connectivity as well.

      Spring season will be better ... i think we could see around 150-160 weekly flights + charters in a peak season.
