Slovenia's only airport lies about a 30-minute drive from both Ljubljana and Bled, and about 1.5-hour drive from Portorož and most other places in the country. The airport goes by three names: Ljubljana airport, Brnik or Jože Pučnik Airport (www.lju-airport.si). Most flights are operated by Slovenia's national airline, Adria Airways, but additional flights are run by Air France, Easy Jet, Wizz Air, Turkish Airlines, etc.
