Lufthansa makes big impact on Slovak market

GERMAN carrier Lufthansa transported over 21,000 passengers since it arrived on the Slovak market in May 2004 to the end of the year. Of this number over 70 percent were transfer passengers of which between 50 to 60 percent headed to final destinations in Europe.

Lufthansa's regional director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bernd Hahn, announced that on average, flights on the Bratislava to Munich route were half full.

Hahn sees growth potential in the air travel sector in Slovakia. The key is to get people to fly from Bratislava rather than Vienna. Lufthansa's ambition is to launch a scheduled route from Bratislava to Frankfurt.
