First charter flight from Japan lands in Slovenia

At the beginning of August, the first charter plane from Japan landed at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. It marked the beginning of a series of six charter flights between Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, and the Japanese cities of Tokyo, Sendai, Nagoya and Osaka.

The charter flight connection between Japan and Slovenia sets a milestone in the systematic marketing strategy of Slovenian tourism in overseas markets. It is the result of the efforts of the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB), Slovenian travel agencies and Slovenian tourism providers, who have joined forces to increase the number of visitors from one of the strongest Asian markets, with more than 126 million potential travellers. This year the total number of Japanese passengers in Slovenia will be around 1250.

At the beginning of the charter flights connection between the countries, the Ambassador of Japan in the Republic of Slovenia, His Excellency Keiji Fukuda, emphasised: "On this occasion I would like to express my sincere welcome to the charter flights to Slovenia, which will allow cooperation of All Nippon Airways (ANA), JTB and Club Tourisma with our Slovenian partners. Slovenia is a charming country that prides itself on medieval towns in urban areas and a rich natural diversity.”

You still have the possibility to book your flight between green, active and healthy Slovenia and Japan. The next flights are on:

* 20th August from Osaka

* 27th August from Narita

* 10th September from Nagoya
