Sky Europe taking off

THE NEW Slovak air carrier, Sky Europe, will launch its first route from Bratislava to Košice on February 4, and its first international route from Bratislava to Zürich on February 11.

The airline started selling tickets on January 24.

Sky Europe is the first low-cost airline in central Europe, a fact which will be reflected in its prices. A one way ticket from Bratislava to Košice will cost Sk990 ($20) not including airport fees and VAT; Bratislava to Zürich will run Sk2,990 ($61) not including airport fees.

Sky Europe is planning to invest between $15 and $20 million within three years and create about 300 jobs in Slovakia.
