Slovenia Business Week no. 42: First Choice Launches Ljubljana-Gatwick Charter Flights

Representatives of First Choice told the press that the company would bring over 2,000 British tourists to Slovenia between 23 December and 24 March

British tour operator First Choice is launching weekly charter flights between Ljubljana and London's Gatwick Airport, with a view to opening ski resort Kranjska Gora as a destination for family tourism.

Representatives of First Choice told the press on Wednesday, 20 December that the company would bring over 2,000 British tourists to Slovenia between 23 December and 24 March.

First Choice sales manager Max Mason said that over 1,300 packages have already been sold, while an additional 400 tourists will come to Kranjska Gora via Salzburg, Austria.

He said his company was presenting Slovenia as a country with a similar standard of accommodation as Andorra for prices that are equal or below those in Bulgaria.

Due to the high demand, the company plans to launch charter flights from Manchester for the next skiing season, expanding the offer of accommodation to Bled and the neighbouring ski resorts of Kobla and Vogel.
