Slovak air carrier Seagle Air suspended flights from October 22 for lack of money, the airline’s General Manager Peter Hanák informed the ČTK newswire. Seagle Air was used by Slovak and Czech travel agencies on charter flights.

“The reason is that until now the contract with the Italian partner Skyone Italy Airlines on the use of our aircraft to fly from Italy has not been filled,” Hanák said, as quoted by the ČTK newswire.

The number of tourists who are currently abroad and should be returned to their homeland with Seagle Air is yet unknown, the same goes for the number of passengers that are to leave soon.

“Travel agents in Slovakia have several alternative plans to address the situation,” the web portal Sme.sk quoted the Vice President of Slovak Association of Tour Operators and Travel Agencies, Pavol Komora. Suspension of Seagle Air flights should not cause major problems, he said.

“We can use AirSlovakia or the Czech Airlines. Also viable is the possibility of using the local airlines in some destinations is; for example, in Bulgaria,” he added.

Seagle Air was established in 1995 and has provided charter-flight services since 2007 with six Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Seagle Air provides services to several major travel agencies in Slovakia and, according to statistics of Bratislava Airport it is the third largest carrier from that airport. For the first nine months of this year, the company from Bratislava transported nearly 230,000 passengers. ČTK
