SkyEurope overflies its limit

Slovakian budget airline SkyEurope has
filed for bankruptcy and suspended all flights.

In a company statement, the carrier says
the recent actions of suppliers, reduced passenger bookings and traffic revenue
has meant it did not
have sufficient funds for sustaining operations.

“All SkyEurope flights are suspended with
immediate effect. SkyEurope expresses
its outmost regret and apologies to the travelers for any inconvenience and
assures that until the very end all efforts have been made to carry out all
flights. An orderly procedure will be set up to minimise discomfort to the travelling public,” the company said in the
statement. 

Low-cost carrier Ryanair has offered stranded passengers
a €25 one-off “rescue fare” to get home whilst Bulgaria Air has said in a press release it
will ferry the majority of passengers with a valid SkyEurope
ticket.

SkyEurope saw a 37 per cent decline in traffic for July
year-on-year.
