Bratislava has only one airport called "Letisko Milana Rastislava Štefánika", or shorter version "Letisko M. R. Štefánika", so it is easy to navigate to here. The low-cost airlines, Ryanair, flies directly to here. Visit the Official website [EN] for more information.

Getting there by bus

The airport is easily accessible by bus; however, do not expect any exclusive shuttle service. You can take the bus number 61 (see the timetables [EN]), which connects the airport with the central train station and it will not take you more than 30 minutes to get there.

This bus has also its nightline, so you will not get stuck at the airport even between 11pm and 4am. See the timetables (EN) for the night bus line number N61 here.

Another bus number 96 (timetable [EN]) can take you to the other side of the city called Petržalka.

The price of the one-way ticket valid for 60 minutes (eventually 90 minutes during the weekend) is 0,90€ for normal tariff, and 0,45€ for the reduced tariff.

Getting there by train

There is no train station directly on the airport, but the central train station is easily accessible by bus. See the section above for more information

Airport by car

The airport is located in the eastern part of the capital city of Bratislava, with a direct link to the D1 motorway by-pass. Motorway exits are clearly signposted, with a pictogram of an airplane, together with the Slovak word for airport "Letisko". GPS coordinates: N 48.1702076, E 17.1991187

Parking is also provided and prices are about 1,70€ for every hour. 15 minutes stay is, however, for free. For detailed prices follow the airport official parking price-list [EN].

Questions & Answers

  1. Kaley

    How much is a taxi from the airport to the city centre and how long does it take?

    1. Jakub

      Hi Kaley,

  2. Roberta

    We are flying one way from Bratislava to Dublin on July 1, 2015. We will be coming from Vienna. What is the best way to get to the airport from Vienna?
    Also are there any short term luggage lockers at the airport? We would like to arrive early and store luggage and make a short visit to old town.

    1. Jakub

      Hi Roberta,
      I would suggest you to go directly to old town first. Then take taxi or bus to the airport.
      Nevertheless, there are direct bus connections from Vienna to Bratislava (airport as well). Check for prices and reservation.

    We will be arriving at Bratislava Airport from the UK at 14.10 on Wednesday 8th October and want to travel to Vienna by ferry. We will travel by bus from the airport. How far is the boat departure point from the bus stop? Do we need to get a different bus?
    Thank you for your help

    1. Jakub

      Hi liz,
      I would suggest you to take a direct bus from Bratislava Airport to Vienna - it is most comfortable. You can buy bus tickets online here:
      However, if you want to go by ferry, you would need to take a bus #61 following the tram #4. See journey planner here:

    Good evening,

    Wednesday we arrive at LETISKO M. R. STEFANIKA.

    How can we get from there to the HOTEL APOLLO (Dulovo Namestie 1) by public transport (bus ?).

    Kind regards

    1. Samuel

      Hi Chris Vandermersch,
      there are several options, the simplest is :
      take bus n. 96, 12 stops to "Maximiliána Hella", then change to bus n. 50 (heading to Aupark), it's 6 stops to Dulovo Namestie - you should be there in aprox 35 minutes (altogether). Don't forget to buy and mark bus ticket (there should be a machine right out of the airport, it accepts coins only). Have a nice stay

    Many thanks for replying so quickly, where should I buy the bus ticket ? and do I have to pay extra for large suitcase?

    Doing a one day excursion on Friday 12th September to Vienna, best and cheapest way to travel, where do I buy ticket? obviously still at Danubia Gate Hotel!

    Your kindness is very much appreciated in helping me

    1. Samuel

      Hi Faith,
      there should a ticket machine right in front of the airport (next to the bus station) - it accepts coins only, so change some money if needed. Usually no one pays for large suitcase, but it is probably written on the ticket machine that you should.

      Best for Vienna is either a train - tickets can be bought right at the main train station (you can find some more info on our website) or a bus (tickets can be bought online here
