Slovenian torch at the airport

There are only a few days to go before the Winter Olympics start, and our thoughts are already turning to Korea. Airport staff are impatiently waiting for the Games to kick off, pulses quickening in anticipation of the triumph or disappointment that awaits the Slovenian competitors. The Slovenian torch has criss-crossed Slovenia and more than fulfilled its mission. Now, it is our great honour to host the torch, which will stay lit at the airport until the end of the Games.

Today the Slovenian torch was handed to Fraport Slovenija’s managing director Zmago Skobir by one of Slovenia’s finest ice hockey players, Tomaž Razingar, in the company of Olympic cross-country skier Jože Klemenčič, who competed in the Games way back in Sarajevo in 1984. Mr Skobir had this to say: “I am delighted and very proud to host the Slovenian torch here at our airport for the duration of the Games. This is where our athletes and their support staff and fans will begin their journey to Korea. Among our employees are a large number of loyal fans of Slovenia’s winter athletes, so to be the last point of contact when the athletes leave for competition and their first point of contact when they return home is a very special honour – especially if they come back with a medal or two, when the entire airport will brim with pride and give them the welcome they deserve.”

Ljubljana airport is a Gold Partner of the Slovenian Olympic Committee, and this is also one of the reasons why we have decked it out in the Olympic rings. In addition to the torch, we have also put together a book of wishes, where travellers and airport visitors can enter their wishes and support our sporting heroes as they fly from Brnik to far-off Korea. Tomorrow will also see the opening of an exhibition of items from the public Olympic poster and torch design competition, which was organised last year by the Slovenian Olympic Committee (Association of Sports Federations), in cooperation with the Europlakat company. During the Games, travellers will also be able to have their picture taken next to the torch, and publish the photographs on the airport’s social media pages under the #slovenska bakla hashtag.

Thomas Haagensen, Managing Director easyJet Europe said:
“I’m delighted to announce a new direct service from Ljubljana to Berlin today as part of our expansion at Berlin Tegel airport. The route has been unserved for a few months so we’re really happy to connect the two capitals again. Berlin Tegel is easyJet’s third destination from Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, in addition to our existing services to London Gatwick and London Stansted. easyJet’s new Berlin Tegel base offers a quick access to Berlin’s city centre, making it the perfect starting point to explore Germany’s capital city for both tourists and business travellers alike.”

Zmago Skobir, Managing Director Fraport Slovenija said:
"Fraport Slovenija welcomes easyJet's decision to establish a regular connection between the Slovenian and German capital. This follows the strategy of developing the airline network of Ljubljana Airport with as many direct flights as possible to various destinations. Considering that Germany is Slovenia's largest trading partner, we are convinced that this and all the following connections of our airport with German cities will be successful and that it will also significantly contribute to the further growth of the number of German tourists in Slovenia."



A new bypass road is open

At 11 am today, the Minister of Infrastructure, Dr. Peter Gašperšič, together with the Minister of Economic Development and Technology Zdravko Počivalšek, the Mayor of the Municipality of Cerklje na Gorenjskem Franc Čebulj, and the Managing Director of the company Fraport Slovenija, Zmago Skobir, officially opened and put into service the new Kranj – Spodnji Brnik road at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. In the opinion of line Minister Gašperšič, this successfully concluded and technically challenging project is a fine example of modern infrastructure needed by the dynamic Slovenian economy and demanded by the modern society in which we live.

The purpose of the investment in the main Kranj – Spodnji Brnik road was to facilitate the airport’s development through its urgently needed expansion, and provide traffic safety and better access to the airport. The investment covered the construction of a new main road with roundabouts, diversion of the local road to Cerklje, appropriate arrangement of the service road for transport links to all areas of the airport complex and arrangement of the area of the junction to the military part of the airport. In view of the planned provision of long-distance cycle paths, a separate cycle lane has also been created along the length of the shifted main road. The overall cost of the project is EUR 5.5 million. Of this, the Slovenian Infrastructure Directorate as the investor covered costs of EUR 4.125 million, with funds amounting to EUR 1.212 million coming from Fraport Slovenija and the Municipality of Cerklje na Gorenjskem contributing EUR 0.163 million. Construction of the road began in the middle of 2016 and was completed as planned at the end of 2017.

Infrastructure Minister Dr. Peter Gašperšič underlined in his address at the official opening ceremony that this completed section of road is extremely important both for the airport and for the country and municipality.  Three roundabouts will offer faster access to the passenger and cargo terminals and to other sections of the airport, along with improved traffic flow and safety, and a cycle lane has also been installed along the length of the newly constructed bypass. Zmago Skobir, Managing Director of Fraport Slovenija, added that after a record year in 2017 and the opening of the new road link, in line with the new strategy the company will be able to develop the range of commercial activities within the airport complex, while at the same time it can ensure greater passenger and customer satisfaction by investing in the new passenger terminal and development of cargo transport.

“One of the priorities of the government of Miro Cerar is to create a stable business environment and a high level of competitiveness in the international arena. I am proud that by pooling our energies with the Ministry of Infrastructure we have found a way towards the accelerated and sustainable development of our main airport. Development of the airport will contribute to the further growth of tourism, where this year we have broken records: 4.5 million tourists, 12 million overnights, EUR 2.5 billion in revenue. And 13 percent of our GDP comes precisely from tourism. We are distinguished by knowledge, and on that basis, work performed to a high standard. For this reason, too, foreign investments in Slovenia are gaining strength. The task of all of us is to strengthen sustainable growth of the economy for the wellbeing and advancement of the entire country," said Zdravko Počivalšek. The new road section, with its easing of traffic and envisaged cycle lane will of course be a major acquisition for the municipality. “The new road section serves to fulfil the long-term plans of traffic regulation that are the precondition for further development of the airport, and in this way also the development of our entire municipality,” underlined the Mayor of Cerklje na Gorenjskem, Franc Čebulj.
