Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport handled 108.964 passengers in March, an increase of 16% compared to the same month last year. It tops off a strong first quarter for the airport, during which it welcomed 288.355 travellers through its doors, up 17.5%. In March, the number of aircraft movements also grew in the double digits, at 16.8% for a total of 2.840. The growth is being fuelled by both Adria Airways, which has boosted frequencies on a number of routes when compared to last year’s downsizing, as well as a strong performance by foreign carriers. Ljubljana Airport is due to announce plans for a new terminal building on Thursday next week.
