Air Slovakia goes bust

March 4: Air Slovakia ceased operations on March 2 due to financial difficulties, the third airline from the country to close down during the last six months. Since October both SkyEurope Airlines and Seagle Air have ceased trading due to the harsh economic climate.
Air Slovakia was founded in 1993 and operated four Boeing 737 ‘Classics’ and three 757-200s during its last year of operations. Ryanair has said that it will offer Air Slovakia passengers a “rescue fare” of €69 until March 31.
