How to get here


Slovenia has only one international airport (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik International Airport) but is easily accessible from neighbouring Venice, Vienna or Munich with a transfer to Jože Pučnik International Airport. Among neighbouring international airports, the closest option is Venice Marco Polo, which is just a two hour drive from the Vipava airfield.


A highway exit leading directly to the airfieldis accessible from both directions of the main highways - Venice (A4) and Ljubljana (A1). Your trip to the venue should therefore be pleasant and convenient.
