The new routes to Sofia and Warsaw will be serviced four times a week, said Wizz Air’s communications manager Sorina Ratz.

“They’ll expand the mutual development of tourism,” Ratz added, as quoted by TASR.

Moreover, Wizz Air will increase the number of flights to Kiev and Skopje, from the current two to four a week.

In the first six months of 2017 Wizz Air transported more than 50,000 passengers from Bratislava.

“We plan to expand existing cooperation even further in the future,” said Bratislava airport’s general director Jozef Pojedinec, as quoted by TASR.
