I never flew them, but I was born in Slovakia and know who to ask. If you want to learn more about SkyEurope then go here

There are plenty of guys at http://www.slovak-airports.net who flew SkyEurope (NE) and can give you feedback.

For reviews about some flights visit:

If you're lucky, you'll get to go on B737-500 OM-SEA, which has a huge picture of gorgeos Slovakian supermodel, Adriana Sklenarikovya-Karebeu painted on its side.

Hello,

SkyEurope is LLC company that operates out of BTS. They also have flights out of BUD.

They operate fleet (4) of EMB-120 and (1) B737-500. They have planes to operate more B737.

They fly to European cities, and within Slovakia. I heard that they are good company to fly on. Pretty cheap, and they offer food.

They might be one of the best in Slovakia.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Cheers,
Andrej

PS Jano, a Vy kde zijete? Na Slovensku, alebo v Amerike?

They now have 3 737-500 (OM-SEA,OM-SEB, HA-LKO).

Expect a slightly above average LCC service. On-time performance seems to be the only problem with them. Trying to do too many things at the same time, expecting and planning for quick turnarounds at busy airports at peak times and whatnot. However, you should be fine as the STN service is the first one of day for the 737, delays usually occur later in the day (mostly the ORY service).

On the 28th of March SkyEurope Airlines will start the route Amsterdam Bratislava, and followed by the route Amsterdam Budapest, from the 2nd of Mai. The route Budapest will be served 6x times a week and the Bratislava (first airline from Amsterdam to Bratislava and v.v.!) route wil be served 4x times a week. The airline excist now for about three years and serves 18 destinations in 12 countries and is the first low cost airline in East/Central Europe.

Groeten SPL

It think what's really tempting about SkyEurope is that it is the first LCC to fly to Croatia - Zadar, Split & Dubrovnik. Before that the cheapest way to get to Croatia was with Ryanair to Trieste (then bus to Croatia) or Pescara (then ferry to Croatia). Anyway, I heard that the flight to Croatia aren't cheap either unless you get the dates just right.
