“Passengers from Bratislava will be able to make use of six Wizz Air flight routes next year - to Skopje [Macedonia], Kiev [Ukraine], Warsaw [Poland], Sofia [Bulgaria], Tuzla [Bosnia and Herzegovina] and also a new London-Luton route,” said Jozef Pojedinec, general director and board of director’s chairman of Bratislava Airport as cited by the TASR newswire.
