“Venice, Bristol, Oslo and Copenhagen are new additions,” Madunická said, adding that popular summer destinations such as Alghero (in Sardinia), Malaga and Palma de Mallorca have remained among the range of available routes.

She did not rule out the addition of more routes later in the summer “given the expansion of Ireland’s Ryanair in central Europe and its character as a flexible low-cost carrier”.
As well as scheduled routes, tens of charter flights will operate out of Bratislava during the summer, with Dubai among the new charter destinations.
