Wed Dec 07, 2005 7:52 pm

Sky Europe have an excellent fare sale at the moment

For example...

STN - WAW £6 return - inclusive of all taxes.
You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!

I'm very interested in SkyEurope. I have heard a lot of positive things about them and I'm looking forward flying them next year (to Bratislava).

They aren't profitable yet but expect to reach this goal by 2007. Not that bad considering they are starting a lot of new routes at the moment.

Quoting RJ100 (Reply 1):

"Not profitable yet" is a very optimistic way to see things. They are still burning cash and made a loss of about 24million euro last year. Expected to be the around the same amount this year. Considering that they already lost around 17 million before, there is not much left from the 70 million they made with the IPO some time ago.
Shares have plunged from 6Euro to 3.95 up to about 4.50 again. No good sign at all.
If they continue like that money is out within next year and they again need some cash.
So you better fly them soon.....

Yes that's actually true. But as far as I know the big part of the losses is because of extra costs due to the Emb-120 phase out. But yes, a loss is a loss.

They have started a lot of new routes recently. They need time to develop. I am sure that they will do better in 1-3 years.

A problem is definitely the strong competition.
