The Poprad-Tatry Airport together with its regional partners is preparing a charter connection with Kiev, Ukraine, for the winter season. The flights will be available once a week from the end of December until March, the director of the commercial department of the airport, Ivan Hečko told the SITA newswire on December 13.

The seasonal Riga-Poprad winter flights operated by airBaltic from mid-December to mid-March will be added to the year-round regular flights to London. The flights to Riga will be operated every Saturday.

For whom are the new lines meant?

While the flights to London are mostly used by Slovak and British tourists, the line to Riga is meant mainly for tourists heading to the Tatra mountains from Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Finland and Sweden. The regular Poprad – London service is operated by Wizzair on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, with the Airbus A320-200 planes, according to SITA.

The airport in Poprad lies 718 metres above sea level and is one of the airports at the highest altitudes for civilian planes in central Europe, the Korzár daily wrote. It is situated about 200 metres from a highway junction connecting the town of Poprad with the High and Low Tatras.
