Slovenia Control upgrades ATC technology


US-based air traffic simulation and voice technology services provider UFA has been selected to deliver an ATTower air traffic control (ATC) training solution to the Slovenia Control Training Facility at Ljubljana Airport. The ATTower ATC training solution will get integrated with the Slovenia Control automation system to allow the controllers to use the same system in their training which is used in actual operational tower setting. UFA CEO, David Wolff, said, “The delivery of ATTower integrated with Slovenia Control automation systems is yet another example of the continued interest by our clients to provide their trainees with the highest fidelity training environment. The combination of their systems with UFA’s powerful suite of simulation tools brings a unique level of training capability tailored to their needs”. Under the contract, UFA will provide a multi-channel ATView configuration to display the 3D aerodrome visual model and simulated traffic situation. The Slovenia Control automation system will provide flight data information, surveillance display and weather information to controllers. UFA will also deliver four photorealistic 3D airport visual models as part of the contract.

VLM Slovenia readies for operations


VLM Airlines Slovenia (VLM Airlines d.d), a subsidiary of SHS Aviation Slovenia which runs Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, has begun preparations for its planned launch later this year. The ambitious carrier, which aims to link Slovenia's second largest city with eleven destinations this year (Belgrade, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Podgorica, Split, Zurich, Xi'an, Chongqing and Nanchang) with a mix of Airbus A320, A330 and Fokker 50 aircraft, is in the process of acquiring a Slovenian Air Operator's Certificate (AOC). As a result, the start-up flew a Fokker 50 aircraft from Antwerp to Maribor from its sister company VLM Airlines in Belgium in order to fulfil necessary procedures required for it to be granted an AOC. The head of SHS Aviation, Pang Siu Yin, expects for a permit to be issued by Slovenian authorities swiftly. "After we receive an AOC license, we will start operations in one month", the company said.

The new operators of Maribor Airport will invest at least 300 million euros into the city, which will include the construction of a new passenger terminal at the airport and the lengthening of the runway. SHS foresees Maribor Airport handling 1.54 million passengers and 82.000 tonnes of cargo by 2022. This number is expected to grow to two million passengers and 160.000 tonnes of cargo by 2028. During 2017 alone, SHS anticipates for Maribor Airport to welcome some 400.000 travellers through its doors, which would be a record. Some 139 million euros will be invested into the airport, including the development of long haul flights, over the next five years.

Although many have questioned the nature of the project as the unrealistic targets set by the company, SHS is adamant its investment in both the airport and airline is part of a wider strategic project. "Maribor Airport, with good transportation links to Europe and Asia open sup a lot of opportunities for trade, tourism and investment in Slovenia. With our network partners in Europe and Asia, there are a lot of business opportunities for the opening of local enterprises in the tourism, food, real estate and services industries", SHS noted. The company plans to register up to six A320-200s and fifteen A330-200s in Slovenia. while the remaining seven F50s will remain in the Belgian registry.

Dniproavia to launch Kiev - Ljubljana service


Ukrainian carrier Dniproavia will introduce a three weekly service between Kiev and Ljubljana this summer, connecting the two cities for the first time in six years. The airline will run flights each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Borispol Airport to the Slovenian capital with its fifty-seat Embraer E145 aircraft starting June 27. Tickets are already on sale through the carrier's website. The news comes several months after the President of Ukraine and his Slovenian counterpart reached an agreement to restore air services between the two countries. Adria Airways last operated the route in the summer of 2011 on a seasonal basis, however, the two weekly flights were suspended as part of the airline's wide-ranging cost cutting measures at the time. In 2014, the company intended to resume services and applied for permits and slots at Kiev Airport. Those plans were subsequently shelved with the outbreak of violence in Ukraine.

After fulfilling all criteria of the European Union's Visa Liberalisation Plan, Ukrainian nationals are expected to be granted visa free travel to the Schengen Zone by June this year, which will significantly boost travel. Dniproavia maintains a small network of seven scheduled destinations, four of which are in Ukraine. Furthermore, the airline operates a range of charter flights. It boasts a fleet of eleven E145s. Return ticket prices for its new Ljubljana service start from 120 euros. Further flight details for the Kiev - Ljubljana route can be found here.

Dniproavia will launch flights to Ljubljana a month after Adria expressed strong interest to introduce services between the two countries. “Ukraine has potential. We are now in negotiations with Ukrainian airports and are exchanging ideas. I cannot go into detail at this moment but we are discussing a direct service between Ljubljana and Ukraine”, Adria's Chief Commercial Officer said recently. It is believed Adria was considering flights to both Lviv and Vinnytsia. Last month, the Slovenian aviation regulator met with the Ukrainian Ambassador to Slovenia to amend their bilateral air agreement which limited flight operations between the two countries only to Kiev and Ljubljana, excluding all other airports in the process.

Ljubljana to announce new terminal plans


Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport is set to announce plans for the construction of a new passenger terminal on April 20. Based on previous reports, airport operator Fraport has decided to build a new facility valued at between fifteen and twenty million euros in order to better compete with nearby rivals and resolve congestion issues. Furthermore, on April 20, the company running Ljubljana Airport, "Aerodrom Ljubljana d.o.o.", will be officially renamed to Fraport Slovenia.

Adria reaches pilot deal to prevent strike


Adria Airways' management and the airline's pilots have reached a deal over the latter's strike demands, averting additional industrial action which had been announced for next week, as well as May and June. The content of the agreement was not disclosed. It comes after almost all of Adria's 113 pilots staged a strike on March 22 and 23, causing the airline to arrange short-term wet-leases of aircraft and crew and disrupting a number of flights. Further industrial action was to take place from next Wednesday, starting at 05.30 CEST, until Friday at 23.59, as well as between May 3 and May 5, and June 6 to June 8. The strike would have come in the lead-up to the Easter holidays and the aftermath of the May Day holiday period.

Adria's pilots went on strike after their collective bargaining agreements expired at the end of February. They requested for the agreement to be reinstated under the same terms and conditions and accused the management of plans to scale back a range of rights and obligations. It is believed a pay cut of up 35% was proposed by the airline's management. Adria has cut wages for its pilots, which are some 8.000 euros gross per month (5.000 euros for co-pilots), on several occasions, the last time being in 2011. The system of overtime calculation for pilots was also changed at the time, switching from being based on one months working time to being averaged out over four months working time.

The industrial dispute with its pilots was the first to take place since Adria was taken over by Germany's 4K Invest early last year with a mandate to turn the company around. The management has remained silent on the recent protests and has not commented on the losses Adria incurred as a result of the recent strike. Last week, the collective agreements of the airline's cabin crew also expired and negotiations are now set to take place over a new deal. The last time the collective agreement was negotiated, cabin crew also threatened to go on strike, which was averted just days before it was scheduled to take place.

Ljubljana Airport maintains growth



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.

Adria Airways is yet to report its passenger figures for 2016, however, according to the Slovenian Statistical Office, the airline carried 1.450.400 travellers on board its aircraft, an increase of 13.1% compared to the previous year. According to the Office, the new year has started off on a soft note, with figures in January decreasing 13% to 72.800 passengers. Despite growth from its Ljubljana hub, Adria has decreased operations from its secondary bases in Poland, Kosovo and Albania. On the other hand, Montenegro Airlines expects for its passenger numbers to decline this year as it consolidates its operations and optimises its network. The Montenegrin carrier said, "Plans for 2017 are based on the reduction of costs and the maximum utilisation of all available capacity, as well as business optimisation on all levels. As a result, and keeping in mind the state of the existing fleet, the company anticipates a decrease in the number of passengers, with an improved average cabin load factor". Montenegro Airlines saw only a 0.6% increase in its passenger numbers in 2016, when compared to the year before. The carrier handled 581.519 travellers.

Ljubljana Airport unveils new terminal

Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has announced the construction of a second terminal building at a press conference in the Slovenian capital today. The new facility, valued at sixteen million euros, will be opened to the public in time for the 2020 summer season, which begins on March 29 that year. The construction of the new structure will allow for the airport to handle 1.280 passengers per hour, up from the current 500, and will feature a total of 22 check-in desks, five security lanes, as well as a new premium lounge. The building will stretch over an area of 8.700 square metres. The existing terminal will remain partially in use and will be utilised by low cost and charter carriers. Ljubljana Airport's General Manager, Zmago Skobir, said this is part of the airport's efforts to differentiate between scheduled full fare airlines and other carriers.

The current terminal building in use at Ljubljana Airport was built in 1973 but has since been reconstructed and refurbished. It stretches over an area of 13.000 square metres. The new facility will be built next to the existing one, towards Šenčur, and will be connected to it. Further expansion remains possible. The company running the airport, Aerodrom Ljubljana, which is 100%-owned by Germany's Fraport, also announced a change in its name to Fraport Slovenia, in order to increase its international visibility and appeal. Ljubljana is facing increasing competition from nearby airports which are investing heavily in improving their infrastructure. "Fraport is development-oriented, but has a very cautious and conservative development policy. The fact is that we now have a strategic owner who has a great understanding of the development process", Mr Skobir, said.

Meanwhile, the overhaul of the existing terminal should begin this autumn and it should be fitted with new technology. Ljubljana was the only capital city airport in the former Yugoslavia to see its passenger numbers decline in 2016. It handled 1.404.831 travellers, down 2.3% on the year before. However, it is off to a strong start this year with 288.355 passengers welcomed during the first quarter, up 17.5%. The airport's management estimates that growth will avarage 3.1% on an annual basis in the coming years.

Adria expects strong 2017

Adria Airways anticipates for a successful 2017 after it made headway last year both in terms of revenue and expenditure. Speaking to the daily "Delo", the airline's CEO, Arno Schuster, said, "The operational results for 2016 are currently being audited so I cannot disclose them. However, I can say that we saw progress when compared to 2015 both in terms of expenses and revenues. The first year of restructuring is understandably challenging for both employees and the company itself. Last year was very challenging and our main goal has been to stabilise the company". He added, "Adria's operations are very cyclical - divided between the summer and winter. In the winter we have lower revenue and in the summer it is higher".

Commenting on the year ahead, Mr Schuster said, "We believe in the sustainability of the existing business model and financing through higher revenues, which are mostly generated in the summer. In general, we will focus on two areas of our business - both regular and charter flights. We will generate enough revenue in the high season to secure liquidity throughout the year. This is the plan we are pursuing. We have already increased the number of passengers during the low season. Given the demand we are already seeing on our charter and scheduled flights, we expect a successful year". The CEO noted that the airline is exploring new markets as well. "We are always exploring possibilities for new destinations and new markets. Currently, we are more focused on improving existing services. We have added flights to Amsterdam, Sarajevo, Podgorica and Vienna".

According to Mr Schuster, since the first year of 4K Invest's takeover of Adria, emphasis was put on the restructuring effort, as well as stabilising the business, while this year will be devoted to growth and improvements in service quality. "Of course, the restructuring cannot be completed overnight but we are on the right path", the CEO said. Adria Airways handled 227.588 passengers during the first quarter of this year, an increase of 8.3% compared to the same period in 2016. It anticipates for that growth to continue throughout the year after it boosted frequencies on key routes this summer.

Adria to boost EX-YU operations


Adria Airways has made some late amendments to its summer schedule which will see the Slovenian carrier boost operations to Podgorica, Sarajevo, Skopje and Pristina. The airline will introduce an additional four weekly flights between Ljubljana and Podgorica, for a total of seven weekly services. An extra three rotations will commence on May 1, while a further weekly flight will be added on June 26. The carrier initially planned to operate just three weekly services. Montenegro Airlines, which maintains the same route three times per week, will continue to codeshare on Adria's flights. Furthermore, the Slovenian airline has added another weekly flight between Ljubljana and Sarajevo for a total of seven. At first, it planned to operate six services per week between the two capitals, up from last summer's four. An aditional weekly flight will be added from Ljubljana to Skopje and Pristina as well, for a total of thirtern and fourteen weekly services respectively.

Ljubljana Airport net profit falls



Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has registered a third consecutive year of declining profits. Slovenia's busiest airport recorded a net profit of two million euros in 2016, which is down 23.1% on the previous year. During 2016 revenues increased 3.4% to 36 million euros. As previously reported, Jože Pučnik Airport handled 1.4 million passengers during 2016, down 2.3%. Slovenia sold Ljubljana Airport's operator to Germany's Fraport in late 2014. Last week, the airport unveiled plans for a new terminal building.

Two low cost airlines plan Ljubljana service


Two low cost carriers plan to commence services to Ljubljana this year, as budget airlines continue to expand their presence in the Slovenian capital. The head of Ljubljana Airport, Zmago Skobir, said last week that one of the carriers in question is headquartered in northern Germany. The airline is tipped to be Eurowings which is based in Dusseldorf and has expanded significantly across the former Yugoslavia this year. Previous media reports have suggested that the airport is also in talks with Ryanair, Iberia Express and Vueling. Ljubljana Airport noted, "We have introduced an updated and flexible tariff system which has improved competitiveness, as well as incentives available for attracting new airlines. The system will contribute to the introduction and expansion of new and existing flights, as well as to the engagement of new carriers". Details of the new flights are expected soon, as services are tipped to commence this year.

The Slovenian Ministry for Infrastructure noted last week that it is concentrating its efforts on boosting the country's air connectivity and linking Ljubljana Airport with new destinations. "In our opinion, it is important for Slovenia to be connected with the rest of the world, no matter which airline provides the service. As long as they are safe and offer affordable fares to the public". In a recent report, Ljubljana Airport noted, "By working on marketing, we aim to encourage airlines to launch new routes and increase passenger numbers at the airport, particularly from neighbouring countries and thus reduce the outflow of local passengers to neighbouring airports". It added, "We will focus our marketing activities on raising our profile and strengthening the airport’s competitive position in the region".

Low cost airlines have recently increased their operations to the Slovenian capital. Late last year, easyJet launched flights from London Gatwick, while the Dutch-based Transavia commenced services from Amsterdam earlier this month. Furthermore, Wizz Air recently outlined plans to boost capacity on its London Luton - Ljubljana service by upgrading its equipment on the route from the 180-seat Airbus A320 to the 230-seat A321 aircraft this September. Mr Skobir has said that that the airport is doing its best to attract new carriers but warned that fuel prices, state taxes and other charges, which it has no control over, continue to act as a deterrent for airlines.

Adria eyes Balkans for future growth


Adria Airways will put a greater emphasis on its operations in the Balkans where it sees opportunities for future growth. The carrier's CEO, Arno Schuster, said, "We have a base in Pristina from which we offer daily flights. We are increasing frequencies on services to Sarajevo and Podgorica and we also maintain operations to Tirana. For us, this a very important market, because we believe Adria has a very good reputation among consumers in the Balkans". He added, "Our aim is to firstly provide links to major airports such as Frankfurt, Zurich, Amsterdam and Paris, and, on the other hand, allow for connections to the Balkan region, where we see opportunities for growth".

The Slovenian carrier's owner, 4K Invest, has previously said they aim to position Ljubljana Airport as a transfer hub between east and west. Accordingly, Adria has recently boosted operations on a number of services in the former Yugoslavia. The airline has introduced an additional four weekly flights between Ljubljana and Podgorica, for a total of seven weekly this summer. The carrier initially planned to operate just three weekly services. Furthermore, the Slovenian carrier has added another weekly flight between Ljubljana and Sarajevo, for a total of seven, while an extra weekly service will be introduced from Ljubljana to Skopje and Pristina as well, for a total of thirteen and fourteen weekly flights respectively.

In addition to strengthening its presence in the Balkans, Adria will, from today, add an additional weekly service between Ljubljana and Amsterdam, for a total of six weekly flights, up from last summer's four. The boost comes despite the Slovenian carrier competing directly against low cost airline Transavia on the route since April. Transavia currently boasts an average passenger load factor of 87% on its Ljubljana flights, following a month of operations. Commenting on the competition, Mr Schuster said, "Adria Airways is focused on comfort. We offer several flights per week to Amsterdam, as we have increased our frequencies. Price is another matter. The advertised price by low cost airlines isn't accurate, because it often involves additional costs. We believe we have a competitive product, which is reflected by the demand on this route".

Adria to close Lodz base


Adria Airways will terminate flights from Lodz this summer after three years of operations. The Slovenian carrier will suspend its sole remaining route out of the Polish city to Munich on June 30. Ticket sales for the ten weekly service, codeshared by Lufthansa, have been terminated thereafter. The Slovenian carrier has a Bombardier CRJ 700 aircraft, nicknamed Lodz, stationed in the city, as well as local Polish crew. The airline has been steadily reducing its operations from Lodz over the past year, initially suspending flights to Paris, followed by Amsterdam. In a statement posted on its official Facebook page, Lodz Airport said, "The Board at Lodz Airport has decided to end its cooperation with Adria after failing to conclude a new agreement. Despite negotiations, we failed to reach a deal that is acceptable to both sides".

The development marks an end to Adria's Polish adventure which began three years ago and saw the carrier maintain services out of Olsztyn and Rzeszow as well, which were both discontinued after several months of operations last year. The growth in Poland was part of a revised outlook by the airline's former management to place less of an emphasis on the company's limited home market and to develop into a pan-European, rather than a Slovenian, air carrier. Adria's new owners said last year they would continue developing operations out of Poland. The airline will keep flying between Ljubljana and Warsaw where it competes directly against LOT Polish Airlines.

Lodz is centrally located in Poland and is the country’s third largest city. However, it is just 135 kilometres south-west of Warsaw and the opening of a new motorway linking the two cities in 2012 has reduced travel time to approximately one hour, making it much harder to generate and sustain air services from Lodz. From June 30, Ryanair will become the only airline to maintain services from the city, serving Dublin, East Midlands and London Stansted. It had previously operated flights to an additional eight cities, but, like many, has scaled back activities in recent years. SAS Scandinavian Airlines closed its route to Copenhagen and Wizz Air has suspended operations from Lodz, after cancelling its links to Dortmund, London Luton and Stockholm Skavsta. Adria is yet to comment on the closing of its Lodz base, the faith of its local staff or where it plans to deploy the CRJ 700 past June 30.

VLM Slovenia prepares for takeoff


VLM Airlines Slovenia, a subsidiary of SHS Aviation Slovenia which runs Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, has been granted an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) by the Slovenian Civil Aviation Agency for the transport of passengers and cargo. As a result, the ambitious carrier, which aims to link Slovenia's second largest city with eleven destinations this year (Belgrade, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Podgorica, Split, Zurich, Xi'an, Chongqing and Nanchang) with a mix of Airbus A320, A330 and Fokker 50 aircraft can now commence operations. One of the three directors at VLM Slovenia, Harm Jan Prins, has confirmed the airline's upcoming launch from Maribor. The company previously said that upon receiving its Slovenian AOC it will start commercial flights within a month.

According to Belgium's "Travel Magazine", the Maribor-based VLM will now inherit a fleet of six Fokker 50 aircraft from sister company VLM Airlines in Belgium and base all of the turboprops in the city, which will enable it to introduce its outlined European operations. The F50 has the capacity to seat up to 58 passengers. Furthermore, the first two Airbus aircraft are set to touchdown in Slovenia shortly. Ultimately, the carrier plans to register up to six A320-200s and fifteen A330-200s in the country. Although many have questioned the nature of the project, as well as the unrealistic targets set by the company, SHS is adamant its investment in both the airport and airline is part of a wider strategic project. "Maribor Airport, with good transportation links to Europe and Asia opens up a lot of opportunities for trade, tourism and investment in Slovenia. With our network partners in Europe and Asia, there are a lot of business opportunities for the opening of local enterprises in the tourism, food, real estate and services industries", SHS noted.

The new operators of Maribor Airport will invest at least 300 million euros into the city, which will include the construction of a new passenger terminal at the airport and the lengthening of the runway. SHS foresees Maribor Airport handling 1.54 million passengers and 82.000 tonnes of cargo by 2022. This number is expected to grow to two million passengers and 160.000 tonnes of cargo by 2028. During 2017 alone, SHS anticipates for Maribor Airport to welcome some 400.000 travellers through its doors, which would be a record. Some 139 million euros will be invested into the airport, including the development of long haul flights, over the next five years.
