A court in Paris decided on Tuesday, July 7, to order the release of a Boeing 737 plane belonging to Slovak low-cost air carrier SkyEurope Airlines, a.s..

Orly Airport in Paris seized the plane two weeks ago, citing outstanding airport fees it said were owed by SkyEurope. SkyEurope spokesman Tomáš Kika informed the SITA newswire that the released plane would leave Paris on Tuesday afternoon, probably for Prague.

SkyEurope, which has been under court protection against creditors since June 22 of this year, turned to the court after describing the airport’s action as illegitimate. SkyEurope said it intended to claim damages in compensation. In the case of protection against creditors, airports and other suppliers are required to abide by valid contracts. SITA
