The management of the low-cost airline SkyEurope, which was granted bankruptcy protection by a district court in Bratislava on June 22, had been assuring its customers that the situation will not affect them in any way.
However, on the evening of the same day Paris’s Orly airport kept a SkyEurope Boeing 737 which had arrived from Prague from departing, allegedly because SkyEurope had not been paying the airport fees, the TASR newswire reported.
The plane was supposed to fly back to Prague with passengers.
“40 travelers were flown to Prague with a substitute plane and the rest will fly tomorrow afternoon,” Tomáš Kika, spokesman for SkyEurope told the Czech daily Hospodářské Noviny. TASR
