SkyEurope criticises Vienna Airport for releasing confidential information

Vienna airport Schwechat Flughafen Wien AG on August 11 violated a secrecy agreement when it released information about its temporary suspension of the handling of Slovak-based airline SkyEurope’s planes, SkyEurope spokesman Tomáš Kika said on August 12.

"The negotiations were of a private nature and were held under an agreement of discretion with Vienna airport," said Kika. Nonetheless, the airport issued press releases in which details of the agreement with the airline were stated. "We're looking into this situation from a legal point of view as well," Kika said.

Schwechat airport suspended handling of SkyEurope's flights on Tuesday because, it said, the airline had not paid its debt despite appeals and fixed maturity dates. The airport’s move led to the delay of six SkyEurope flights. "The [affected] passengers have been provided with everything they have a right to claim in line with the valid legislation and regulations of the EU Directive," stressed Kika.

SkyEurope made an agreement with Vienna airport late on Tuesday that the debt would be paid by Friday (August 14) afternoon. If the Slovak-based airline does not pay, Schwechat will terminate the services it currently provides to SkyEurope immediately. Kika refused to comment on any information presented in the media concerning the details of the secrecy agreement. TASR
