Honey was also commonly employed as a sweetener, while nuts – particularly pistachios – were another popular after-dinner treat.Lucy Taylor (BBC)

Nakup bo po naši oceni Adrio okrepil in utrdil zaupanje vanjo ter je dobra novica tudi za preostale deležnike – druge poslovne partnerje, zaposlene in potnike. S to potezo se ohranja mobilnost prebivalstva, ki je v gospodarskem in turističnem smislu gonilo nacionalnega razvoja, Slovenija pa ostaja na zemljevidu letalskih destinacij.Aerodrom Ljubljana
