SkyEurope to open new Bucharest-Prague route?

Posted in Aviation, News by Teo


Just a rumor. No official confirmation.

And another two unconfirmed news/ rumors – also no official confirmations:

Jul 11, 2008: SkyEurope will cancel Sofia-Prague flights during winter months (this probably makes sense if they intend to move the flights to Bucharest)

Jul 2, 2008: SkyEurope Airlines to operate weekly from Israel to Bratislava
