Bratislava airport has switched to the winter schedule. Travellers from Bratislava will be able to use 22 regular flights to 20 destinations and two charter flights to winter holiday destinations. The novelty in the offer is regular flights to Copenhagen and Lanzarote.

Four flight companies will operate 22 flights during the winter: Ryanair, Wizz Air, Air Cairo and Smartwings. Flights of the Russian company Pobeda should also be renewed, but probably no earlier than in January 2022.
