Airlines are strengthening their operations, adding a total of 26 extra flights during the Christmas period, between December 18 and January 7.

“In addition, flights on Christmas Eve are scheduled to depart in the morning hours, so that people can get home in time for the holidays,” Bratislava Airport spokesperson Veronika Ševčíková wrote in a press release, specifying that the final departure (from Bratislava to Moscow) is at 17:45.

“Flights on the last day of December were scheduled in a similar manner, with the last departure to Dubai at 13:35 and the final arrival from Athens at 17:35,” said Ševčíková.

Airlines always count on increased traffic during the Christmas holidays and around New Year’s Eve. Ryanair added 20 flights – 10 arrivals and 10 departures – to and from London-Stansted, Manchester, Athens, Madrid, Birmingham, Dublin, Milan and Niš (Serbia). These flights are in addition to the regular weekly schedule.
