Low-cost airline SkyEurope Airlines will not include a Bratislava-Ireland connection in its winter flight schedule.
"The reason is the slowdown of the Irish economy, due to which the Slovaks working in Ireland are coming back home and the demand for this connection is decreasing," SkyEurope spokesman Tomas Kika told news wire TASR. "Since the company wants to remain the price leader, an adjustment of capacities and flight schedule is necessary."
Kika cited the growth of fuel prices as another reason for the closedown.
Currently, SkyEurope flies to Dublin on a daily basis and to Cork three times a week. The winter schedule will be in force as of October 28, 2008.
Last month SkyEurope Airlines opened a new Kosice-Manchester connection flying three times a week, and they added morning Kosice-Prague flights for peak periods, wrote TASR.
