“We believe that we will bring tourists to our French friends and that we will also make their journeys to the sea or business easier,” stated Ján Rostáš, the CEO of Danube Wings. The CEO said that without the conceptual support of this airport and local government officials who closely cooperate with local tourism entrepreneurs, these routes could not have been launched.

Danube Wings also operates routes in Sweden based on a similar support scheme and recent assistance from Italian entrepreneurs helped to launch the airline’s Bratislava-Venice route.
