"We have also seen an interest among citizens of those eight countries in flying to Slovakia, although the measure in place does not allow this transport for foreign nationals," said the airport spokesperson Veronika Ševčíková for TASR.

Civilian flights including regular and charter flights have been banned until June 11, when the authorities will decide whether they will prolong the ban or not.
