Tirana International Airport (TIA) held a ceremony on Monday, 30 June 2014, to celebrate the beginning of a new tourist charter flight between Tirana and Bratislava. The weekly service is provided by Shkodra Travel&Tours travel agency and will operate on Mondays.
Some 200 tourists arrived from Bratislava on the first flight from Slovakia curious to see Albania and enjoy its sandy beaches.
