“I hope that we will succeed to bring even third or fourth plane to Bratislava after some time,” O’Leary said, as quoted by SITA, “which means that we will have another 10 or 15 new destinations all around the Europe.”

The firm will invest more than $200 million and plans to transport nearly 1 million passengers per year, according to the TASR newswire.

According to O’Leary, within five years the number of transported passengers travelling from Bratislava should increase to 2 million, but it is possible to reach even 5 or 10 million, Sme daily reported.
