BUSINESS IN SHORT

Dubai and Bratislava connected

DUBAI-based airline flydubai has added Bratislava to the growing network within its significant expansion in central and southeast Europe. Firstly, it will run two return flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays and it will add a flight connection on Wednesdays as of January 14. During the promotion for the new regular flight, the airlines announced they will consider further extension based on the number of passengers, the SITA newswire reported.

“The launch of the new scheduled flight connection between Bratislava and Dubai is a great business success,” Ivan Trhlík, CEO and Chairman of Bratislava Airport, said as cited in the press release. “It is for the first time in the history of Bratislava Airport to have a new scheduled flight to this favourite destination.”

Flydubai is another airline which added Bratislava to its map. During the first week of December, the Austrian airline, Niki, unveiled its plans to introduce connections from Bratislava to Brussels and Mallorca via Vienna as of April, while the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will open its first base in Slovakia, in Bratislava, next March.
