Coronavirus Cancels Flights at Ljubljana Airport, Including to Belgrade, Frankfurt, Brussels & London

10 March 2020 – Fraport Slovenija, the operator of the Ljubljana airport, is already facing cancellation of flights to and from the airport due to the spreading of the new coronavirus, and more cancellations are expected in the future.

 

The company said on Tuesday that Wednesday’s flights to Belgrade, to and from Frankfurt, to and from Brussels, and to and from the Montenegrin capital of Podgorica had been cancelled.

Several flights scheduled for next week have also been cancelled – including the connections with Berlin, Brussels and London.

“It is hard to speak about additional cancellations at the moment, but it is expected that new [cancellations] will follow,” Fraport said.

Slovenia imposed a ban on arrivals of aircraft from the high-risk areas until the end of month today. Fraport noted that there were no direct links between Ljubljana and these areas any way.

State aircraft, mail or cargo aircraft and aircraft without passengers returning to a base or maintenance are exempt from the ban, which relates to the Italian regions of Lombardy, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont and Marche, as well as China, South Korea and Iran.

As regards temperature screenings at the airport, a measure announced by the government to curb the spreading of the virus, Fraport said that it could be implemented in the coming days.

The national railway operator Slovenske Železnice meanwhile said that traffic was running on schedule, including by the train connecting Ljubljana and Italy’s Trieste twice a day.
