A new air link between the UK and Slovenia is being established by Wizz Air.

The central and eastern Europe budget carrier is to run three flights a week between Luton and Ljubljana from October 30.

Fares start at £23.99 one way including taxes.

A spokesman for the airline said: “We are excited about this new route from London-Luton to Slovenia, which in the current recession really is something to celebrate.

“We are focused on delivering value for money flights for business people and tourists travelling to/from London and this new route to the Slovenian capital means that these travellers can now take advantage of low fares on yet another Wizz Air route.”
