Bratislava Airport Public Bus Recommendations

Taking the Bratislava Airport bus into the city is cheap and quite convenient.

Bratislava Airport Public Bus Fares & Payment

Bratislava Airport Public Bus Payment: Pre-paid tickets/tokens/pass

EUR 0.90 for a single ticket to the city centre (valid for 60 minutes from the moment of validation; transfer to other public transport lines allowed).


Bus drivers don't sell tickets in Bratislava so you need to get tickets in advance. Use the vending machines (there's one outside the departure building) but note that you will need euro coins as the vending machines don't take notes. You can also buy tickets in the tourist and exchange offices in the terminal, but they have only limited working hours. Be aware that the Bratislava Airport shops and kiosks are not very helpful when it comes to changing bills into coins. However, you can change notes into coins by "abusing" the coffee vending machine in the departure building. Insert a note and press cancel, it will return the amount in coins (thanks to a local police officer for this tip!).


Remember to validate your ticket in the marking machine in the bus.

Bratislava Airport Private Bus Details

Coach lines connect Bratislava with all of Slovakia, a high number of Czech cities and a number of EU destinations, including London, Paris and daily buses also depart to Budapest.


The most frequent international coach connection by far is Vienna, with two lines running almost every hour to/from Vienna's Sudtirolerplatz near Sudbahnhof via Vienna International Airport:

  • Blaguss coaches to Vienna stops in central Bratislava (beneath Nový most bridge) and Bratislava Airport
  • Slovak Lines coaches stop at the Coach Terminal and Bratislava Airport
  • A trip from/to Vienna takes about 1.5 hours


While many coach services stop at the Bratislava Airport, if you find the bus for your destination does not, it will likely depart from the Bratislava Central Coach Terminal (Autobusová stanica). The terminal is located at Mlynské nivy, at the eastern border of the city centre. To get to the Central Coach Terminal:

  • Take Bus 61 from Bratislava Airport to the Central Train Station (Hlavná stanica), then
  • Take trolleybus No 210 to the Central Coach Terminal
