New Bratislava Airport Terminal to Open in June 2010
Bratislava, May 7, 2010 (Bratislava-City.sk) - Bratislava Airport (BTS) will open its newly built terminal with capacity to handle 3.5 million passengers annually in early June, Slovak news agency SITA reported.
Works on the new terminal began in December 2008. Immediately after the opening all flights will move there and reconstruction of the 40-years old terminal will begin.
Bratislava Airport is Slovakia's main international airport although it has traditionally been dwarfed by the nearby Vienna International Airport in Austria.
The airport is located 9 km from the centre of Bratislava and is majority state-owned.
