“The city as well as the region are ready to launch a new connection to Germany next year,” said Raši at the Košice Invest 2015 conference, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The German cities set to be connected to Košice are still open for discussion. Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt and Dusseldorf are all in the frame.
“We need to launch the process of pooling the financial resources of the city and region via their organisations for tourism, as they’re the main organisations financially supporting these connections,” mayor said. “Then we have to recognise which German airport is the best for our region. Finally, we have to find the transport operator which will best attend to our needs and which will require the lowest level of investment stimulus,” Raši told TASR, adding that individual employers in the region have been calling for connections with the cities in which they have their international headquarters.
The launch of a route to Germany will be established in a similar way as in 2013, when tourism organisation Košice Tourism initiated a link between the eastern-Slovak metropolis and London.
