SkyEurope loses, Orly keeps plane

A PLANE belonging to Slovakia-based airline SkyEurope will remain in Paris Orly Airport, a French court in Creteil ruled on July 28.

A PLANE belonging to Slovakia-based airline SkyEurope will remain in Paris Orly Airport, a French court in Creteil ruled on July 28.

“The Court ruled in favour of Paris Orly Airport, which will keep the plane,” Helene Caillet from Paris Orly Airport press department told the TASR newswire.

Soon after SkyEurope was granted protection from its creditors by a court in Bratislava, Paris Orly Airport detained the plane because of unpaid take-off and landing rights fees.

Based on the general application of EU laws and regulations, a French court then decided that the aircraft should be released. Secretary-General of the Court of Higher Instance in Creteil Ghislaine Cavailles noted that the verdict should have taken effect as soon as it was announced, meaning that the plane should have been released.

However, the Paris airport appealed the case, was successful and now has possession of the plane.

SkyEurope declined comment on the ruling pending receipt of the verdict in writing, TASR wrote.
