Slovak skies growing busier

TRAFFIC in Slovakia's airspace increased by 20.6 percent in 2004 compared to the previous year. The number of flights reached a new record of 292,830.

"The number of flights far exceeded expectations, confirming an increase in air traffic in Slovakia and elsewhere in Europe," said Peter Zázik from Letové prevádzkové služby (LPS), a state-run air operator and flight services company.

LPS was established in January 2000 to provide air traffic control, airspace information and to coordinate military and security aircraft searches, the TASR news agency wrote.
