Fico: Bratislava Airport to be ready for Schengen

M. R. Stefanik Airport in Bratislava will be prepared for Slovakia's entry to the Schengen zone when the main EU inspection takes place, Prime Minister Robert Fico said during a visit on August 20.

After taking the time to express his appreciation to the airport’s management for all its hard work, Fico claimed that when his government took power in July 2006, Slovakia was lagging behind in its preparations for accession to the Schengen zone, and that his Government has already adopted more measures in this area than the previous government did in four years.

Slovakia plans to join the Schengen zone as of January 1, 2008, although airports won't become part of the system until four months later. TASR
