For the majority of journeys to and from the airport, a 60-minute ticket is recommended. When travelling from the airport to the railway station or vice versa on route 61 with no transfers, it is enough to purchase a 30-minute ticket. A 0.35 € (15-minute discounted ticket) is neccessary for luggage and is valid for 180 minutes, in spite of being a 15-minute ticket only if purchased for a passenger.
Both single- and multi-journey time-limited tickets can be purchased in red ticket machines in the arrival terminal at the airport.
If you are a Slovak cellular carrier customer and need a full fare ticket for both you and your luggage, it is beneficial to purchase an SMS ticket for 1.00 € (40 minutes) or 1.30 € (70 minutes) by sending any SMS message to 1140 or 1100, respectively. Such ticket is valid for all day and night routes and includes a luggage fare. Keep in mind that you need to receive an SMS back from the ticket provider before boarding any service.
