Four carriers operating to Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport plan to double their services next summer season when compared to this year. Air France, Aeroflot, British Airways and Montenegro Airlines will all increase flights from their respective hubs to the Slovenian capital, with Air Serbia and LOT Polish Airlines yet to finalise their summer timetables. Finnair, which maintains seasonal operations from Helsinki to Ljubljana will also add flights, while Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines and Swiss International Air Lines, which launched services to Slovenia this winter season, could increase their offer next summer but are yet to schedule any additions.

Air France plans to maintain double daily services to Ljubljana, up from seven weekly for the majority of the 2019 summer season. Russian flag carrier Aeroflot will introduce a second daily flight from Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport starting March 29. Both daily operations will be carried out by the Airbus A320 aircraft. British Airways will increase its seasonal services from London Heathrow to Ljubljana, which were launched in 2019, from two to four weekly. The flying season will also be extended and will start almost two months in advance, on May 22, and last until September 26. Montenegro Airlines plans to run six weekly services from Podgorica, up from three for the majority of the summer of 2019 and increasing to daily during peak months. In addition, Finnair will operate daily flights into the Slovenian capital during the peak summer months, up from five weekly.

The German national carrier has also made changes to its planned 2020 summer operations with the airline’s evening service from Frankfurt to remain in Ljubljana overnight. Therefore, as of March 29, Lufthansa will offer a more convenient early morning departure to Germany. On the other hand, just days after launching six weekly flights from Brussels, Ljubljana Airport said it expected for the Belgian airline to introduce additional frequencies from next summer, while strong demand and solid advanced bookings would likely result in a more convenient schedule. The airport is also courting carriers for the introduction of flights from Prague, Copenhagen and Skopje.
