Adria Airways operates Budapest—Vienna service on behalf of Austrian Airlines
Slovenian Airline, Adria Airways, will operate flights between Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD) and Vienna International Airport (VIE). While the frequency of the flight is currently undisclosed, the flight is expected to only take 45 minutes and Adria Airways will use its CRJ-900 aircraft to transport passengers. Including the service operated by Adria Airways on Austrian Airlines' behalf, Budapest Airport has four flights going to Vienna each day.
This isn't the first time Adria Airways and Austrian Airlines have combined to do business. Back in 2017 Austrian Airlines wet-leased two CRJ-900 aircraft to Adria Airways, which is the same aircraft that Adria will be using on the service between Budapest and Vienna.
28th March 2018
Adria Airways commenced two new routes from Ljubljana (LJU) during the first week of the 2018 summer season, with it choosing to link the Slovenian city to Geneva (GVA) and Sofia (SOF).
The connection with the Bulgarian capital was the first to launch, with Adria Airways inaugurating a twice-weekly (Mondays and Thursdays) service on the 809-kilometre city pair on the morning of 25 March. The airline also operated a Sunday service during the first week of operation. The route to Geneva commenced on 26 March, with Adria Airways scheduled to operate the 641-kilometre sector to Switzerland three times weekly.
The routes launched by the carrier this week are expected to be flown on its fleet of 67-seat CRJ 700s, with neither city pair facing direct competition. The next route launches for the carrier occur next week, when it links Ljubljana to Bucharest and Hamburg. Flights to the German city were meant to launch on 25 March, but Flightradar24.com data shows that the flight did not operate, with the first bookable direct flight occurring on 1 April according to the airline’s booking engine and OAG.

Adria Airways operating Hamburg-Ljubljana flight from March
Adria Airways will operate the first direct flight from Hamburg Airport to Ljubljana from March 25, 2017 marking a brand new destination, a press release said Wednesday (November 29, 2017). Adria Airways is the latest airline to operate from the airport. Dr. Joergen Kearsley, Head of Aviation Marketing at Hamburg Airport, noted: “Ljubljana is yet another attractive addition to our network in southern Europe.”
Ljubljana – cultural and economic heart of Slovenia
Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia and has a population of 300,000. The city was so far one of the few capitals in the EU without a direct flight to Hamburg. The connection is attractive to both business and leisure travellers going on city trips and holidays. Thus we welcome the commitment of Adria Airways and welcome the airline as a new partner,” said Kearsley.
Ljubljana is an ideal starting point for touring Slovenia, which lies between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea and has diverse landscapes such as the unusual Karst landscape with over 11,000 caves. The Pannonia Plain and many traditional water sources make the region ideal for nature lovers. Last year, Ljubljana was named “Europe’s Green Capital 2016”.

Adria Airways sells brand in €8million deal
Adria Airways (JP, Ljubljana) has disclosed in its annual report that it sold its brand in December of last year in a deal worth EUR8 million (USD9.6 million). However, the airline has not revealed who the buyer was. News site Siol speculates that the brand may have been sold to a company connected to Adria's owner 4K Invest in a bid to improve its financial figures on paper.
According to Adria's annual report, the airline will lease back the trademark. "A branding fee is paid by the new trademark owner (i) with a royalty deducting from the purchase price, and (ii) after 9 years, i.e. in 2025, the remainder of the purchase price of the brand in cash. The license fee for the calendar year is EUR400,000 + 0.15% of annual revenues."
As a result of the sale, Adria posted an annual net profit of EUR3.2 million, a dramatic improvement on 2015's loss of EUR9.2 million. This was despite an 11% decrease in passengers carried and a corresponding 6.72% decrease in passenger revenue. Operating expenses were down 6% to EUR150 million.
4K Invest subsidiary AA International Aviation Holding assumed full ownership of Adria Airways in July 2016 after winning an international tender to purchase the airline, as part of a government-backed privatisation drive. The airline operates to twenty countries using a fleet of three A319-100s, three CRJ-700s, and seven CRJ-900s.

Friendly Adria Airways
Youíve just got to like Adria Airways. Friendly, growing and eager to serve, this is an airline that tries hard to represent the best of a country now making its mark on the European scene.

Plus it uses London Gatwick rather than the overcrowded halls of London Heathrow; definitely worth a try.
