Bratislava Airport reports light at the end of the runway after two difficult years

Air transport is gaining ground again in Bratislava after two tough years and it remains to be seen what ramification this will have on passenger interest and ultimately on Bratislava’s airport, Dana Madunická, the spokesperson for Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik Airport (BTS), told the TASR newswire on May 16.

Air transport is gaining ground again in Bratislava after two tough years and it remains to be seen what ramification this will have on passenger interest and ultimately on Bratislava’s airport, Dana Madunická, the spokesperson for Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik Airport (BTS), told the TASR newswire on May 16.

Madunická pointed to a recent decision by Czech Airlines (ČSA) to operate 24 new direct flights to six destinations per week out of BTS beginning in June. The list of air carriers flying to and from the airport currently includes Ryanair, Danube Wings, Utair Aviation, Czech Airlines, El Al, Belle Air and charter carrier Travel Service. Poland's LOT will operate flights to Warsaw until the end of May.

The crisis took a heavy toll on three of the airport's major airlines – SkyEurope Airlines, Air Slovakia and Seagle Air – all of which went bankrupt. Their range of services differed, however, and for that reason the impact of their bankruptcies cannot be generalised, Madunická said.
