Air carrier Opera Jet offers flights from Slovakia

Another private airline has begun offering flights from Slovakia. The company Opera Jet, s.r.o. was granted an operating licence on June 17 this year. Its aeroplanes already fly from Slovakia but its official entry into the Slovak market and a promotional campaign are scheduled for early August. Opera Jet was set up in February, when the investment and development company Opera bought into the airline company Air Carpatia Services. The company's fleet comprises two Cessna planes. However, it plans to purchase two more planes soon and a Dassault-Falcon aircraft in 2010. Opera Jet services are destined mainly for passengers seeking privacy and comfort. Prices per flight hour amount to thousands of euros. Head of the board of directors Pavel Richtárik said that despite changing input prices the company considers the private flight sector to be very promising. SITA
