The number has been rising when compared to the same periods of the previous year since the beginning of 2015. In January, the figure went up by 26 percent y-o-y, in February and March even more, by 36 percent. In the first quarter of 2015 the airport saw 215,419 passengers, the TASR newswire wrote.

The Bratislava airport reported at the end of 2014 that a significant increase in passenger numbers was expected in 2015 because of new planned connections. The airport plans to reach two million passengers per year over the next two years.

Passenger numbers at the Bratislava airport have not always risen. In 2013, the airport saw a total of 1.37 million passengers, which was a drop of 3 percent when compared to 2012, TASR wrote.
