The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on global travel, resulting in significant disruptions to airport operations worldwide. The study on airport operations in Slovakia before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic found that passenger traffic and flight frequencies experienced significant declines during the pandemic, causing operational disruptions and financial challenges for airports. The research utilizes a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative data analysis and qualitative insights from key stakeholders involved in airport management and operations. In the post-pandemic period, while there was some recovery, passenger numbers and flight frequencies remained below pre-pandemic levels. The study's results suggest that the aviation industry in Slovakia faces ongoing challenges in adapting to the new normal, with implications for future investments and strategies in airport management, capacity planning, and financial sustainability.


Keywords – Covid pandemic, airport management, Slovak aviation.
