The Bratislava Airport will restore flight connections with Ukraine after almost a six month break on Friday.

The regular flights from Bratislava to Kyiv and from Bratislava to Lviv, operated by Wizz Air, will re-start on Friday and on Saturday respectively.

The winter schedule also includes flights between Bratislava and Odessa, to be launched in late October.

Ryanair will operate flights between Kyiv and Bratislava as of late October as well.

Slovakia banned regular flights from its airports during the first wave of the pandemic on March 13. Regular flights from countries that are not on the safe list were re-launched on September 7, but that did not include flights to Ukraine due to the Ukrainian pandemic-induced border closures.
