26 Sep 2011 Compiled by Spectator staff Business
A NEW passenger airline, Slovakian Airlines, entered the local market in an original way in September – by naming its first plane, a Boeing 737-500, after Milan Rastislav Štefánik, one of the founders of independent Czechoslovakia, the Hospodárske Noviny daily reported.
“We expect to begin flying by December 15,” said Arnold Medzihradský, the chief executive of Slovakian Airlines, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The first flights should connect Bratislava with England, Italy, Spain and Russia, and there are ongoing talks about further destinations. The carrier does not want to fly to destinations that are already served by other airlines.
