According to a survey by the London-based company Skytrax Research, SkyEurope Airlines is the best low-cost airline in Eastern Europe and the third best low-fare carrier in Europe, SkyEurope Airlines communications manager Tomáš Kika told the TASR newswire on August 13.

The poll gathered the views of 4.5 million passengers of over 90 nationalities between August 2007-July 2008. The quality of service of around 210 low-budget airlines from all over the world was assessed.

"Both these excellent positions in this prestigious ranking mean a lot to us, for the chart has been drawn up in a survey of satisfaction and experience among passengers. It's one of the most objective methods of comparing services of the individual airlines," said SkyEurope CEO Jason Bitter.

SkyEurope is the leading low-cost carrier in Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Its fleet is made up of 15 new Boeing 737-700NG aircraft. It has transported more than 3.7 million passengers over the past 12 months. TASR
