“We expect to begin flying by December 15,” said Arnold Medzihradský, the chief executive of Slovakian Airlines, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The first flights should connect Bratislava with England, Italy, Spain and Russia, and there are ongoing talks about further destinations. The carrier does not want to fly to destinations that are already served by other airlines.
