ČSA plans to restore international flights to Poprad

THE CZECH Republic's national air carrier, České aerolinie (ČSA), announced May 6 that it has successfully negotiated an agreement with the Slovak Transportation Ministry to start using the Poprad-Tatry airport for international flights, the Hospodárske noviny business daily reported.

"From now on it is only a matter of technical talks between Vysoké Tatry or the city of Poprad and ČSA to set the parameters of which routes it will be," said Minister of Transport, Posts and Telecoms Pavol Prokopovič following his negotiations with the Czech airline.

Prokopovič said he would be pleased that it would not be only the Poprad-Prague route and that ČSA is also considering routes with London, Paris and Brussels. According to him, ČSA is interested in other airports in Slovakia too.
