13. 05. 2011 - Czech Airlines Will Offer 24 Direct Flights Weekly from Bratislava to Six European Metropolises

Prague, 13 May 2011

Czech Airlines will newly offer scheduled flights from Bratislava to major airports in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Larnaca in Cyprus, but also to Paris and Rome. The airline will operate its flights from Slovakia’s capital with a Boeing 737-500-type aircraft. Czech Airlines has decided to significantly adapt its flight schedule to the needs of Slovak clients and offer passengers a total of 24 weekly direct flights from Bratislava to six destinations.

In June, Czech Airlines will start operating two weekly return flights to Barcelona, three to Brussels and to Larnaca, Cyprus, four to Amsterdam, five to Rome, and seven to Paris. “Our decision to start operating direct flights from Slovakia’s metropolis was governed by the most frequent routings of passengers on Czech Airlines’ transfer flights from Bratislava via Prague on to the airline’s network.  Another factor is that Bratislava airport has no direct connection to the main airports in Brussels, Barcelona, and Paris, and that there is absolutely no connection to Amsterdam and the popular Larnaca. The Slovak market offers interesting potential in this regard.  Now, Czech Airlines will offer passengers from Slovakia comfortable direct flights to the most sought-after European destinations,” explains Jiří Marek, Czech Airlines Vice President for Sales and Marketing.

Ticket sales for direct Czech Airlines flights from Bratislava to the new destinations mentioned above will start on Tuesday 17 May 2011. Clients can purchase them through the airline’s websites at www.csa.cz and www.czechairlines.sk, in the first Czech Airlines OK Point in Slovakia, on Krížna Street 5 in Bratislava, or from IATA ticket vendors.

Czech Airlines will announce the precise flight schedule and the days of the start of operation to each destination at the beginning of next week, with the start of ticket sales.
