SLOVAK airline company Seagle Air will most likely lose its licence, private television channel Markíza reported on its evening newscast on December 7. The airline announced in October that it was having financial trouble, the TASR newswire wrote.

The Transport Ministry performed an inspection at the company and confirmed that it had found technical and financial shortcomings.

Seagle Air’s director declined to comment on the situation. At the same time, the company announced that it is negotiating with an unspecified investor in order to maintain its place in the market. The company said on October 22 that it is suspending all of its charter flights planned for the immediate future.

“The reason for this decision is that our Italian partner, Skyone Italy Airlines, hasn’t fulfilled at this time the contract for the use of our planes for flights from Italy,” the company said.
