New routes available from Bratislava Airport

The number of destinations with regular flights from M.R. Štefánik Airport - Airport Bratislava will increase due to the introduction of the summer flight schedule. According to the new schedule which will be valid until October 28, the number of flights on some lines will increase. The airport's PR manager Zora Kalousková explained that in the summer season air carriers traditionally increase regular flights to tourist destinations.

The low-cost SkyEurope Airlines now also offers weekly flights to Malaga.

Further novelties are flights to Catania twice a week, and also to Varna and Thessaloniki. Probably, there will be changes to the schedule during the season and new destinations will be added. Kalousková said that Moscow and Brussels are also being discussed.
