The figure amounted to 45,541 passengers on charter flights in July, the airport's marketing manager Juraj Tóth told the TASR newswire on August 2.

“The total number of passengers handled by Košice Airport this July was 79,537, which is an increase of 19 percent when compared to July 2016,” Tóth said.

The airport handled 266,662 passengers between January and July 2017, up 13 percent (or by 31,180 passengers) from one year to the next. A total of 205,681 passengers used regular flights, while 59,954 traveled on charter flights.

“In the first seven months of this year, we served a higher number of passengers than during the whole of 2011, 2012 or 2013,” the airport's CEO and board chairman Michal Tmej said, as quoted by the newswire. "This shows how much progress we've made along with our partners in terms of eastern Slovakia's air connections to the whole world.“
