We are pleased to offer travellers new international destinations as well as additional flights to popular tourist destinations, thus expanding travel options with Aeroflot for both business and leisure travellers.”
Zmago Skobir, managing director of Fraport Slovenija, operator of Ljubljana Airport, said:
"We are happy to greet Aeroflot at Ljubljana Airport. Daily flights should generate up to 50,000 additional airport passengers per year. Aeroflot is a trusted air carrier with a modern fleet that will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the visibility of Slovenia in Russia and on the inflow of Russian tourists to Slovenia. Russian travellers are traditionally good consumers, so they are expected to substantially contribute to the tourist income of Slovenia. For Slovenian travellers Aeroflot's connection to Moscow is an excellent starting point for further travels over Russia, to former Soviet countries and to Asia as well.”
Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia, its main political, financial and cultural center. It is popular among tourists for its architecture and large number of green spaces. Ljubljana is a picturesque city with a medieval castle standing proud on the hill above the city's downtown. Ljubljana is host to a wealth of attractions whilst still being considered an undiscovered gem of Europe. The capital of Slovenia is easily accessible from other major European cities, including Vienna in Austria, Venice in Italy and Munich in Germany.
Aeroflot operates daily flights to all of these destinations and starting from October 28 is expanding its European route network and increasing flight frequencies. Now your trips to Europe with Aeroflot can be even more convenient and waiting times for connecting flights from our hub at Moscow Sheremetyevo even shorter.
