Adria Airways (JP, Ljubljana) CEO Mark Anzur says Adria is planning to conclude its scheduled CRJ200 operations in March next year with one of the jets destined for charter use while the other will be scrapped. Adria intends to replace the outgoing CRJ-200s with CRJ900s in line with its new strategy of operating larger aircraft with fewer frequencies thereby allowing it to offer more competitive fares.

Commenting on his airline's future plans, Anzur told AIN News that in order to keep up with growth in the country's tourism trade, Adria will wet-lease additional A320-family aircraft next year. By 2016, Adria expects to add “five or six” aircraft to its existing fleet of 11 with some of the jets potentially larger than its A320, he added.

At present, Adria operates two A319-100s, one A320-200, two CRJ-200s, and six CRJ-900s.
