The company wants to focus more on passengers in business class in the near future, the TASR newswire reported.

“In the second half of 2016 when Slovakia will preside over the EU Council, we expect the number of customers from the ranks of politicians and businessmen travelling to and from Bratislava will increase,” Executive Director Michael O’Leary said, as quoted by TASR.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of its establishment, the company plans to carry 1 million passengers this year, and then gradually increase this number to 2 million. O’Leary said that the airline will offer connections to Athens and Madrid via Bratislava. It will run 64 flights a week.

Moreover, the company will open a new base with two airplanes in March 2015, with flights planned twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, TASR wrote.
