The route will run until September 2 with a flight time of just 2 hours, 20 minutes.
BA have launched the new flight as a result of a continued increase in the number of British travellers looking to explore what is now regarded as one of Europe’s leading green destinations. Last year Slovenia welcomed over 160,000 visitors from the UK, compared to around 130,000 in 2017 and less than 110,000 in 2016.
Slovenia’s relatively small size means that visitors can easily use Ljubljana, a European Green Capital, as a base for exploring the country’s beautiful and varied natural landscapes, from the snow-capped Julian Alps in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the south.
This new British Airways flight will run in addition to established routes between the British and Slovenian capitals, with easyJet departing from Stansted and Gatwick, and WizzAir departing from Luton.
