      Nice to see? It's 18,5% DOWN compared to the month when ADRIA collapsed in the middle of the month. This is not a good recovery at all.

      If the airport lost national carrier, then numbers itself are not THAT bad. It is a solid recovery compared to 2022. and I think 2023 will in the end be much better than people actually predicted

      LJU is recovering well. Considering how very few Slovenes actually travel by air, this result is fantastic.

      LJU has potential like a TIA if Slovenian government decides to nationalize airport, lower to rock bottom airport fees and get ULCC traffic by having sweet sweet routes subsidizes ! Instead of making dead horse national carrier which can not survive in the market today.

      18% decrease is nicer to see than 30 or 40% decrease.

    6. LJU is recovering well. Considering how very few Slovenes actually using LJU to travel by air, this result is fantastic.

      How much would you be willing to spend for all those proposed (illegal) subsidies? Are they included in the Slovenian state budget? Or is the money maybe spent more effective elsewhere, e.g. in the reconstruction of infrastructure and housing after the flooding?

    Very nice to see JU so high. Hopefully this winter they can have as many seats as Swiss

    1. Anonymous12:06

      Only if they operate 25 times a week.

    2. Anonymous12:10

      I think they should. Also please be mindful of the fact that JU did not only add flights but increased capacity as well to LJU

      So apparently 7.072 is that good?

      78,16 % LF

    4. Anonymous16:54

      And why they didn't upgrade LJU to year round?

    5. Anonymous16:55

      The numbers are for all flights to Greece and there are many charters. They are not numbers for Athens route. Do not misinform people.

    6. Anonymous18:30

      It clearly says "redni prevoz" regular flights. So, where is misinformation? Which are regular flights to Greece if note Aegan? And there is also information above about all Greece passengers.

      I’m fed up with these extreme accusations. You can always present counter-arguments. There’s no need to accuse people immediately! Accusing someone of “misinformation,” or anything else for that matter, is not something to be thrown around lightly.

    8. Anonymous22:07

      Unfortunately, lots of people doesn’t understand how a proper debate should like, with argument and counter arguments, fact and figures. Just posted their feeling and believes as they are a kind of arguments. In fact, they are making up false allegations without being sorry for that.

      This is all passenger from LJU to Greece. Before I published only regular passengers to Ljut to Athens.

    Ok Fraport is doing something. But sorry they are doing all against them slef (i guess Fraport don’t want to have many conection in favor of LH GROUP) slots are terrible compared to Adria if you go to meeting in Brussel you have to book 3day trip with Adria you have done in one day!! I mean retourn trip LJU-FRA for 500eur???? This is almost 7day charter trip on Greek island !!! Adria was never so expensive! All routes are extremely expensive! Same operator in Trieste-FRA by LH price for return trip 250EUR, why?? In Slovenia befor was well known there was agreement between (Petrol (kerosene)-Adia-LJLJ for the prices & taxes) now without Adria is still the same. Extremely expensive! Terrible!!! I don’t wander why are people goung to Zagreb Trieste Venice … well done Fraport!
