From June, Czech airline Ceske aerolinie will start operating direct flights from Bratislava to the likes of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Paris, Rome and Cyprus.
The airline plans to make flights to the main airports of all the destinations at least twice a week, while those going to Rome will have the choice of five flights per week, and travellers to Paris can go any day they want.
The airline said it made the strategic move as it registered many passengers using Prague airport as a transit airport to some of the destinations, and also because Bratislava is lacking direct flights to some of them (i.e. Amsterdam and Larnaca in Cyprus).
Tickets to the new destinations will go on sale from 17 May.
