Like for like figures highlighting a 10.1% spike in passenger footfall during September through Ljubljana’s Brnik Aerodrome translated into over 157,000 travellers using 3,183 flights, itself a 14.6% climb in services exiting and entering Slovenia through its primary, Fraport-owned airport.
Over the nine month period to the end of September Brnik welcomed in excess of 1.13 million passengers, a year on year increase of 10.8% assisted by a 4.1% jump in aircraft journeys. Flag-carrier Adria Airways have swelled their own passenger figures by 5% throughout 2015 and whilst the overwhelming majority of its flights operate from Ljubljana the aggregated data also takes into account services from Maribor, Tirana, the Kosovan capital Pristina and the Polish city of Lodz. Despite a year of negative publicity for Adria generated by the ongoing uncertainties surrounding its future ownership and discontent amongst the rank and file, Fraport remain keen to work with the airline who are still seen as a key driver for future growth at Brnik.
Whilst Star Alliance member Aegean Airlines are slated to commence flights connecting Greece with Ljubljana rumours of FlyDubai introducing services from Brnik have proved to be nothing more than just that, its Zagreb-based flights already benefiting from a bus-service connecting Ljubljana with the Croatian capital.
