Summary/Abstract: The paper encompasses an analysis of economic performance of seven regional airports in Central Europe in 2008. The selected airports are divided into three categories according to their geographical position (Slovakia, Czech Republic and Austria). There is no existence of the studies dealing with economic performance of regional airports. The attention being paid to measure economic performance of major international airports and regional ones have always stayed behind. The method which is used to estimate best performing airport in the sample is Spider analysis. Apart of the shortcomings of this method in practice, in theoretical application Spider analysis is used by economists as the best approach to evaluate economic and financial situation of the enterprises. The aim of the paper is to evaluate economic performance of Central European regional airports from point of view of the different assessment areas including labour productivity, capital productivity, revenue generation, profitability and cost efficiency in accordance with application of ratio indicators implied in Spider analysis.
