A NEW departure terminal was opened at Sliač Airport in Banská Bystrica Region on July 9, the TASR newswire reported.

“The terminal will boost the airport’s capacity as well as secure comfortable, high-quality and safe flights for travellers”, stated the airport’s executive director, Ľubomír Krupár, as quoted by TASR, adding that after the airport buys its second x-ray scanner its passenger capacity will increase to 300 people per hour.

The €1.5 million spent in building the new terminal was funded via a commercial bank loan and a subsidy from the Transport Ministry.

The airport is experiencing a revival as the number of charter flights has been on the rise, said Vladimír Maňka, the president of Banská Bystrica Region, adding that the new terminal will help in regional development.

“We’d like regular commercial flights to take place as well and this new terminal will help in achieving this goal,” Maňka stated, as quoted by TASR.

Maňka added that the airport investment is significant for attracting new investments and new jobs to the region.

Last year 57 charter flights departed from the airport, which has been offering civilian flights for the past two years as well as its traditional military flights.
