Maribor Airport

The Slovenian airport has new Chinese owners. They want to expand it massively. Soon, non-stop flights from Maribor to China will go - with VLM Airlines.

VLM Slovenia gets a fleet of 6 Airbus A320-200 and 15 A330-200. This year eleven routes will be served. In Europe, Belgrade, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Podgorica, Split and Zurich are on the agenda. In Asia, Chongqing, Nanchang and Xian are targeted. It is not meant to be. For 2018 SHS bosses are planning a massive expansion of the stretch network. Then it should also go to Shanghai, Tehran or Beijing. This would make VLM Slovenia bigger than the Nationalairline Adria.

Will that work? I think not.

Ambitious chinese people. Never heard of Maribor or VLM Slovenia.
Failure very possible.

It could work. Never underestimate Chinese tourists. I live in China myself and from what I’ve seen this could easily work. They did it with Liege too.

Tourism in Liege? Wow, i thought that was a cargo port.
Also on a side note, VLM Slovenia haven’t even started operations yet.
