A new flight route may be open from Košice to Germany, with the eastern Slovak city having the chance to acquire a regular air connection through the low-cost airline Eurowings, starting this October.

The decision will be made within the Vote and Fly! campaign, with competing destinations including the Aarhus, Denmark, Cork, Ireland, Friedrichshafen, Germany, Ljubljana, Slovenia and Stavanger, Norway. The public can vote for their favourite destination from March 6 to March 12, the Sme daily wrote.

“The wider public can cast their vote through the vote-and-fly.com website between March 6 and 12, to support their favourite destination,” Košice airport informed the TASR newswire, adding that the three most popular destinations will reach the final round, which will take place live on Facebook, on March 13.

Airport representative appeals voting for Košice

CEO and chair of the Košice airport board, Michael Tmej, asked not just people from the Košice Region for support, but from all over Slovakia. He argued that Slovaks living in Germany can come home more often and more quickly, and that it would help the region attract more German tourists, thus aiding the development of the more than 60 German investors in eastern Slovakia, as reported by TASR.

Košice is now losing the connection to Cologne it has had since last summer, with Wizz Air.

Eurowings flies to more than 160 destinations in more than 50 countries. In 2017, it was pronounced the best German airline.
