Regular domestic services registered a year-on-year increase of 6 percent, reflecting an increased frequency of flights on the Bratislava-Košice route during the Ice Hockey World Championship this May. On the other hand, international non-scheduled transport dropped 6 percent year-on-year. In the January-May period Bratislava Airport served 467,003 clients, down 7 percent y-o-y.
