Long-term HfP readers may remember that I reviewed the brand new InterContinental Ljubljana in Slovenia last November.
Not only is this an exceptionally good hotel – the first ‘international luxury’ hotel in the city – the city also turned out to be a very attractive place to visit (a photo of the old town is below). The only problem at the time was the lack of flights from Heathrow.
This has now changed. British Airways announced yesterday that it will run a Summer service to Ljubljana in 2019.
Unfortunately it is a very limited season. Flights will only operate on Monday and Friday and only between 15th July and 2nd September. They are bookable now at ba.com for cash or Avios.
The second new British Airways service announced yesterday was the (re)launch of flights to Montpellier in France.
This is also restricted to the school holiday period. Flights will run four days per week, on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 15th July to 2nd September.
