The Košice regional council approved a subsidy of €60,000 to introduce flights between Košice and Cologne, Germany as of June 25.
“The subsidy will support the development of tourism by increasing the number of visitors to Košice Region and boosting the region’s accessibility to other tourist, business and economic centres in Europe,” reads the document approved by the regional council, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The connection will be operated by low-cost airline Wizz Air twice weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays for the summer schedule, and on Mondays and Fridays for the winter schedule.
In the summer, departures from Košice are scheduled for 6:00, with planes returning from Cologne at 8:30, TASR wrote.
Wizz Air, which has a hub in Košice, is due to launch a regular connection to Tel Aviv beginning June 23.
