In line with the plan reported by The Daily back in October 2010, Armenian airlines Armavia will start making regular weekly fights to and from Bratislava from the Armenian capital Yerevan starting next week. The airline is hoping to boost flights to twice a week in the spring already.
Armavia is not the only airline to boost the figures at Bratislava Airport, with more new flights expected from other companies, like Turkish Airlines and its low-cost brand AnadoluJet.
Daily Hospodarske noviny reports that Bratislava Airport is also holding talks on various other new flights, including to Rome by Alitalia, and to the Canary islands by Ryanair (mid-February).
Bratislava Airports projects an increase in passenger number this year to 1.85 million, which is around 150,000 more than last year.
