Slovenia-Serbia air market grows

Thursday, April 30, 2015

The Slovenian Statistical Office reported this week that the biggest increase in air travel in the country in 2014 was recorded between Ljubljana and Serbia, with passenger numbers improving 44% compared to the year before. Some 80.400 passengers flew between the Slovenian and Serbian capital cities last year. On the other hand, flights to and from Russia sustained the greatest decrease in passenger numbers, with figures declining 10% compared to 2013. The majority of travellers departing Ljubljana headed to European Union-member states (58%), while Greece was the favourite for holiday makers flying out on charter services (38%). Germany remains Slovenia’s biggest market for air travel with some 214.000 passengers flying between the two countries. In 2014, Slovenia’s three international airports (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik, Maribor Edvard Rusjan and Portorož) handled 1.32 million passengers, up 3% on the year before.

  1. In 2015, Serbia might even overtake Switzerland since both capacity and frequencies were added on the BEG-LJU route.

      Possible but take into account that LX has started flights to LJU as well this year.

    2. You are right but I am just wondering how many new passengers will LX bring on the market? I fear that they might be after similar passengers as those carried by JP.
