Flights start from Bratislava to main Brussels’ airport Friday

Following the recent tragedy at Zaventem airport in Brussels, which closed the city’s main airport, normal services have gradually been resumed.

From April 8, Ryanair will start operating a daily regular line from M.R. Štefánik Airport in Bratislava (BTS) to the main airport in Brussels. This means that the flights currently landing at Brussels-Charleroi airport will be rerouted to Zaventem, BTS spokeswoman Veronika Ševčíková informed.

A daily regular air connection – six times a week – between Bratislava and Brussels-Zaventem should have been in operation from April 1. However, due to the bomb attacks at Zaventem, Ryanair flights were temporarily re-routed to Charleroi.

The air connection means that the Ryanair flight from Brussels to Bratislava will land at 20:10; while the departure from to BRU (Zaventem) will take off at 20:35, and this arrangement will continue until at least until the end of March 2017.
