Charter flights between Slovenia and Japan

The biggest travel agency in Japan, JTB, have announced five charter flights between Slovenia and Japan in the summer season. The package includes connections between Japan, Slovenia and Croatia. The flights will be operated by ANA airline. The Japanese market is an important tourism market for Slovenia. In 2010 the Slovenian Tourist Board opened an information office in Tokyo as a response to the increasing number of Japanese guests in Slovenia, and a desire to establish stronger ties between Japanese tour operators and the Slovenian tourism sector.

Green, active and healthy Slovenia will be directly connected to Japan in summer 2016. The Japanese travel agency JTB have announced their summer schedule with charter flights, operated by ANA airline, flying directly to Slovenia:

* 13th August from Narita

* 20th August from Osaka

* 27th August from Narita

* 10th September from Nagoya

The charter flights are a result of successful cooperation between the Slovenian Tourist Board and the Japanese tour operator, JTB Business World Tokyo Corp, in the past few years. This is not the first flight connection between Slovenia and the land of the rising sun. In 2008 the first direct charter flight from Japan landed at the international Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, bringing 355 Japanese tourists to Slovenia.

A frequent visitor to Slovenia is Noriaki Kasai, a legendary Japanese ski jumper. At the World Cup Ski Jumping at Planica he even sang ‘Planica, Planica’ in Slovenian. This famous song was written by Slavko and Vilko Avsenik.
