Bratislava Airport is the main airport for the city of Bratislava. The airport is 10km from the city centre. It is a one hour drive from Vienna, Brno in the Czech Republic, and Gyor in Hungary.
This is the busiest airport in Slovakia but is very quiet compared to airports in neighbouring Austria. A smart new terminal was opened in 2011.
The airport receives flights from just a handful of airlines, largely due to competition from airports like Vienna. There is a simple cafe, a snack bar and a newsagent. There is a good bus service into to the city centre.
Economical fares have been available with Ryanair in recent years. Bratislava is especially well served by Ryanair, with routes from Stansted, Luton, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and Edinburgh. Low-cost flights have brought an increase in British visitors to a romantic city set on the River Danube.
