A total of six passengers and two pilots were onboard the flight, which took the group to a private dinner. At first, Sulík did not want to reveal any details about the trip. Later he claimed that he paid for the flight, which cost around €750.

“From time to time, I can afford such an extravagance,” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
