Košice Airport in 2017

What is more, if you include flights based on one transfer, more than 500 destinations are easily reachable from Košice Airport thanks to network airlines such as Austrian Airlines, Czech Airlines, Polish Airlines, and Turkish Airlines. As far as the number of inbound and outbound passengers is concerned, 2017 is the second best year to date.
