Slovenian-israel Air Route Begins

A Slovenian airline will inaugurate service from Eastern Europe to Israel on Thursday.

The Israeli and Slovenian ministers of transportation plan to be at Ben-Gurion Airport to welcome the first flight of the new Adria Slovenian Airlines.

Slovenia, the westernmost of the original six Yugoslav republics, has been flexing its muscle as a viable sovereign state since it declared independence last June.
