Danube Wings, an airline based Bratislava which operates scheduled and charter flights, announced on Tuesday, July 28, that it plans to open several new routes.

"We applied to the authorities to license us to operate routes Poprad to Kiev, Poprad to Warsaw, Kosice to Milan … and Bratislava to Brussels. [At the same time] we want to beef up the Poprad to Basel route," said Árpád Agócs, Danube Wings’s commercial director, told reporters.

In the first-half of 2009 the air carrier carried more than 20,000 passengers on 1,080 flights.

"We are succeeding in meeting our plans and achieving double-digit figures in our performance and sales. Since June we have been carrying some 400 people a day," said Agocs.

In June the airline added a third aircraft to its fleet and was admitted to the European Regions Airline Association (ERRA) on the back of its half-year results.
