Novák Sedláčková, A., Švecová, D., Tomová, A. (2019). Slovak Airports As Profit/Loss Making Entities: Consequences For Transport Policies. Journal of Tourism and Services, 10(19): 153-163. https://doi.org/10.29036/jots.v10i19.112
Regional airports in the European Union have been studied in several papers so far, however, not delivering a lot of knowledge of airports as profit/loss making entities. In the paper, we focus on the Slovak airports which are typical representatives of regional airports in the EU. As there is the knowledge gap in the field of airports in newer member countries of the EU, we explain the specific socio-economic context of the airports in the Slovak Republic against a background of their financial ratios. Our findings are suggestive of the need to set a clear dividing line and interface between national airport policies of member countries of the EU and the EU common airport policy.
