The resumption of flight connections by air lines depends on the decisions of the individual air lines, and of the Central Crisis Staff of the Slovak Republic as well as of the Government of the Slovak Republic.
The Hands-Face-Space principle is applied on the airport premises and during flights. Therefore, the following instructions must be followed:
Nose and mouth must be covered
Wearing a respirator is obligatory at Košice International Airport and aboard the planes during flights.
Spacing of 2 metres is marked in the areas where queues are formed at the whole airport.
Contactless payments lower the risk of virus transmission during manipulation with cash. We recommend you to use contactless payment.
Online flight arrangements
Flight arrangements, including check-in, are possible online to avoid waiting and coming into unnecessary contact with other people at the airport.
Restriction of refreshments
Some airports might have restrictions of refreshment shops, and the offer of food and beverages on planes might be limited.
