In regards with the worldwide “grounding” of the airplane Boeing 737 Max, the Airport Košice, as well as other Slovak and Czech airports, has been facing a rapid decrease in the available flight capacity.
Michael Tmej, general director and Head of the Board of Directors of the Airport Košice, explains: “An uneasy global situation in air services has many times an impact on small regional airports and the shut-down of airplanes Boeing 737 Max is an example of such a situation. We are really glad that Slovak travel agencies have been able to replace the capacity outage of the company Smartwings by contracting other airline operators. The vacationists from all over Eastern Slovakia and larger surroundings can again enjoy flights to their favorite seaside destinations from their home-based airport, the Airport Košice.”
