Slovenia’s main international airport is the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (LJU) (sometimes refered to as “Brnik Airport”) located just north of the capital city, Ljubljana. Scheduled flights from the Uk are operated by easyJet from London-Stansted (STN) and by Adria Airways from London-Gatwick (LGW), Manchester (MAN) and Dublin (DUB). The airport is refreshingly small scale, easy to navigate and has all the facilities that you would expect at an international airport, shops, restaurants, duty free, conference facilities, WiFi, Tourist Information, bank and Post Office.
Adria Airways is Slovenia’s National airline, operating scheduled routes throughout Europe.
Onward travel from the airport is by bus or taxi as there is no direct train connection. Buses run to Ljubljana and Kranj from where you can travel onwards by bus or train. If you are travelling to Bled, a much easier alternative, and very competitively priced (13EUR in 2009), is a scheduled mini-bus service direct from the airport to Bled (with online booking). We have used this service and can highly recommend it.
Many major car rental companies are also based at the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, such as easyCar, Hertz and Sixt.
The Slovenia for airport is “Letališče”.
(Ryanair once operated a scheduled fight to Maribor, but this was suspended in January 2008).
