New Flights To Bratislava

An eastern European airline has announced that it will start offering a new route from Birmingham International Airport.

SkyEurope will fly from the Midlands hub to Bratislava three times a week and the route is due to launch on October 30th.

Flights will leave Birmingham every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 14:00 and arrive in Bratislava at 17:20 local time. The return flights are scheduled to depart at 12:00 local time and land in the UK at 13:30.

Tomas Kika, SkyEurope's head of communication, commented: "We are very happy to directly connect Birmingham with another European capital."

John Morris, head of corporate and community affairs at Birmingham, added: "This three times a week service to this up and coming destination makes it an ideal choice as a city break or gives the option of a longer break in Bratislava and maybe a visit to Vienna, which is only an hour away."

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and the Lonely Planet has this to say about the country: "Slovakia is not about jaw-dropping sights and superlatives; it's about experiencing a place less touched by the glitz and glam of its more famous neighbours.

"A plethora of fortresses and castles pays testament to the history of conquerors and domination in this small country."
