A traditional flight connecting the Slovak capital with Prague and Kosice was re-established at the Bratislava’s international M.R. Štefánik airport (BTS) on December 11. Operated by the Czech Air (ČSA), the link represents the oldest Czechoslovak flight that was opened for the first time in May 1924.
“The flight connection between the cities of Prague, Bratislava and Košice is a traditional route and, without a shadow of doubt, belongs to the flight map of our Central European region,” Bratislava airport Director Ivan Trhlík told the TASR newswire.
In the current winter season, the flight from Slovakia to Prague is connected to other ČSA flights bound from Prague to other locations such as Barcelona, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Kiev, Milan and Moscow, with transfer times to be spent in Prague of up to 2 hours. The number of connected flights is to be gradually extended to Madrid, Nice, St Petersburg, Zurich and Geneva. By making such a move, ČSA intend to contribute to the connection between regions and bolster their attractiveness in the eyes of domestic as well as foreign investors.
