LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), August 29 (SeeNews) - Low-cost carrier Wizz Air said it will keep the flights linking Slovenia's Ljubljana to Belgium's Brussels throughout the year, reversing an earlier decision for a pause in winter months, following the recent collapse of Slovenia's flag carrier Adria Airways.

"Ljubljana-Brussels Charleroi flight schedule has been adjusted to accommodate the increasing demand on that route and will be operated as an all-year-round route from December onwards," Wizz Air told SeeNews in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday.

In August, Wizz Air said the Ljubljana-Brussels service will stop in winter 2019 and will come back in the IATA summer season 2020 in the middle of March and April.

However, things have changes since then, as Adria Airways suspended its flights in the last week of September over lack of funds to run its daily operations, and entered into bankruptcy proceedings at the beginning of October.

Following the shutdown of Adria Airways' operations, Brussels Airlines said it will start operating six weekly flights between the Belgium capital city and Ljubljana from November 4, while Germany's Lufthansa and its subsidiary Swiss announced they will introduce flights linking Ljubljana with Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich in their winter schedules.
