Aeropolis aggregates all the characteristics of a promising real estate development project:
• Strategic Location
Advantageously located at the intersection of two transport corridors which connect central and SE Europe.
Located next to the A2 motorway, the approach road to the capital city of Ljubljana; the proximity of the Port of Koper;
only a few hours drive away from major business centres in neighbouring countries; and lastly, an air link to European
commercial and industrial hubs, make Aeropolis an excellent starting point for successful international business.
The exceptional location, flexible design concept and the current lack of facilities available at the airport, make Aeropolis
a prime, relatively low risk investment opportunity.
Over the next ten years, Aeropolis Ljubljana, a city in
its own right, will be built on 80 ha next to Slovenia’s
central airport. Located at the strategically important
intersection of two European transport corridors, this
is one of the most ambitious development projects of
Aeropolis Ljubljana is the key development project of Aerodrom Ljubljana, d.d., the company, which
manages and develops the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. Its proposal is to develop the airport’s
commercial infrastructure and meet the needs for hotel accommodation, office space, commercial
premises and logistics services, not currently available at the airport.
• Contemporary Design
Buildings in Aeropolis will be designed according to the most modern principles of profitability, cost-efficiency and sustainability.
Planned on the principles of modular architecture, buildings in Aeropolis will allow occupiers to develop and shape
space according to their needs.
Developed in partnership between the property owner, Aerodrom Ljubljana d.d., and the consulting group Ržišnik
Perc, experts in real estate development, Aeropolis the master plan for Aeropolis is at a point, where potential investors
can be invited to join in on the project. If necessary, plans can still be adjusted to suit the interests of prospective
investors. Opened to all forms of business partnership - from granting of building rights to joint ventures,
Aerodrom Ljubljana, d.d., will provide you with all the necessary investment support along with straightforward information
about doing business in Slovenia.

Slovenia - the European Crossroads
Europe is a vibrant market and Slovenia is
ideally located in its centre, at the crossroads
of 5 th and 10 th Pan-European corridors.
PORT OF KOPER
The country lies between the eastern Alps and the northern tip of Adriatic sea,
which extends almost into the middle of the continent, thus providing the cheapest
naval route from Far eastern markets to Central Europe. The well developed
traffic infrastructure, Port of Koper and Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport form a perfect
logistics gateway for Slovenia-based companies to the key European markets.
Large commercial and industrial hubs like Vienna, Munich, Milan or Budapest are
just a few hours drive away. The distance between Port of Koper and Ljubljana Jože
Pučnik Airport is about 130 kilometres.
Slovenia has the highest GDP and the least corruption 1 among so called “new
EU members” 2 . The country’s highly skilled, multilingual labour force and export oriented
economy provide strong growth potential to foreign exporters and investors.

Ljubljana Joźe Pućnik Airport
Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport offers
a scheduled direct connection to
more than 30 destinations in Europe.
The number of passengers and cargo doubled within the last decade and the airport is
in a process of continuous transformation, becoming an important regional distribution
and logistics centre. Significant numbers of passengers and goods from Western Europe
pass through the airport on their way to the south-east of the continent and onwards to
their destinations in the Far East.
The first stage of airside expansion comprised a new terminal I, the construction of terminal
II is just about to begin. Once completed, the airport will meet the forecast increase
in passenger demand but not all the expectations in terms of commercial services
the modern airport users expect.
It is essential that beside modern airside operations, airport provides facilities, which
shorten routes, save time, and offer space for different commercial activities. A commercial
centre that would fill this gap is therefore vital for airport’s success.

• other street-level services (drugstore, hairdresser, etc.).
Once the number of companies starts to increase, it will
cause a chain reaction by attracting more consumers
which will encourage new tenants to move in... a trend,
which might potentially influence the price of properties
in the years to come.

The implemintation of the four
key projects in Aeropolis is
about to begin.
Aeropolis will radically change the appearance of the current airport. The
pace of development will follow the market situation, hence the construction
phases may also overlap. The traffic infrastructure will take place alongside
the development of the main sections of the project. The construction of
Terminal II is just about to begin; also forecast is a new access road, a railway
connection, the rail and bus communication centre and several parking lots.
Construction Phase 1 (7 ha)
The first phase of the Aeropolis development incorporates
the buildings that can be linked to the
existing access road. At the moment, what the airport
lacks most is a business-congress centre and
nighttime facilities, which is why construction of
the hotel and congress centre is taking priority. In
addition to constructing buildings that fall within
the framework of airside activities, further enlargement
of the logistics park is anticipated.
Construction Phase 2 (7 ha + 17 ha)
The relocation of the existing access road and the
completion of Terminal II will dictate the pace of the
expansion in this phase. Along with the increased
road traffic capacity a further expansion of the logistics
centre is foreseen. The new bus station and a
parking garage will be built and initial works in the
business park will take off.

Construction Phase 3 (7 ha + 17 ha + 11 ha)
Further development of Aeropolis will take place in accordance with the anticipated
growth of air traffic due to the increase in the volume of transported passengers and
cargo. The need for increased capacities on all levels will also dictate the expansion of
projects which have already been started; a possible upgrading of the Business Centre, the
Business Park will take its final form, and the Logistics Park may also expand significantly.
Construction Phase 4 (7 ha + 17 ha + 11 ha + 7 ha)
A railway connection will round off the new Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. Public transport
will be organised within the framework of the new communications centre, increased
traffic throughput and the accessibility of the airport will be mostly reflected in
a further enlargement of the logistics centre.

project has to offer within the framework of the current development plan. However,
the final shape and content will be defined by the tenant and may completely change.
Accomodation facilities and conference areas are currently lacking the most at the airport
hence construction of the hotel is a top priority. Aerodrom Ljubljana, d.d., is already
preparing the necessary documentation required to start with the construction works.
The flexible interior concept allows the tenant to
phase the construction as business grows and to
develop various complementary services. A modularly
conceived three-wing building with five above
ground floors is planned for the 30 000 m 2, plot, covering
more than 25 000 m 2 of gross floor area. Two of
the wings will be realized by 2011, the third to be built
later in accordance with the development and needs
of the airport.

There is a lack of a suitable logistics and distribution facilities

Aeropolis Logistics Park essentially a commercial opportunity.
This was first felt by the company DHL, which is why their distribution
centre already operates at Aeropolis. There is considerable
interest on the part of logistics companies to follow the
Moreover, the large area of about 86 000 m 2 enables tenants to
carry out a wide range of logistics concepts. Investors can acquire
individual building plots from 2 500 to 4 000 m 2 to build
their own logistics facilities. The construction of multifunctional,
rentable storage areas for the market is also possible.
In Aeropolis logistics activities are planned over a gross floor
area of 27 000 m 2 in one- to two storey buildings. It is expected
that an additional gross floor area of 80 000 m 2 will be spread
across the rest of the airport.

In Harmony with the Environment
Do You Feel the Opportunity?
Everyone can benefit from the airport development.
At Aerodrom Ljubljana, d.d., we have decided to consistently follow
the principles of sustainable development, considering environmental
problems and the interests of local communities as
being on an equal level as the economic, technical and aesthetic
perspectives of Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport.
We will continue our commitment to the local community and
its social and cultural agenda, by supporting different events,
activities and programmes to make people see that living near
an airport can also be of benefit to them.
We strive to protect against noise, handle energy carefully, and
care about keeping the environment clean. We are active in the
field of health; we contribute also to the development of knowledge
and education. We expect that this will be of even more
importance in the coming years as the development of the airport
will inevitably collide with the interests of the local population.
In line with civil initiatives, we will promptly deal with problems
and find the optimal, sustainable solutions.
Buildings in Aeropolis will be constructed on the principles of
passive energy. Even now we carefully monitor the energy consumption
of the heating and air-conditioning systems. The fact
that a large proportion of the parking spaces will be situated on
basement floors will have a positive impact on the total amount
of green areas provided, allowing for the creation of well designed
In cooperation with specialists in the field of energetics, we are
looking into the production and storage of renewable energy to
fulfil the needs of Aeropolis.
The railway connection will reduce the dependence of the airport
on road traffic; it will relieve the pressure on the roads and
consequently, also the environmental impact. The airport will be
better connected with Ljubljana, which will benefit not only the
airport users, but also the local population.
At the moment, about 2000 jobs are supported by airport activities.
The number will slowly increase along with the planned expansion.
We expect at least another 3000 people to work in Aeropolis;
the local population will also benefit from a significant
increase in indirectly connected occupations, mainly in services
