Air Slovakia To Operate DAC-BTS-London?

Wed Nov 07, 2007 3:40 pm

I can't find any info about air slovakia flying to London, not even on their website. I know they fly to Birmingham, but, according to Yahoo! asia News, Air Slovakia will start Dhaka-Bratislava-London flights from Dec. 6.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Air Slovakia Tuesday announced it will kick off its flight operation from Dhaka to London via Bratislava from next month with a very competitive ticket tariff.
The inaugural flight will fly on December 6 for the capital of the East European country. Air Slovakia will be the second airline after British Airways to operate direct flights from Dhaka to London.
Addressing a press conference, Air Slovakia's Chairman HS Sidhu said his airline would initially operate a flight once a week.
The number of flights may be increased to two or three a week depending on the demand from passengers, he said describing a huge prospect of his airline, now operating flights from India to different European destinations.

About the new flight operation from Bangladesh and food, he said, "We'll treat human as human well serve Bengali foods for the Bangladeshi passengers."

Actually third, BG flies DAC-DXB-LHR too.

There is nothing on the Air Slovakia website although it doesn't seem to have been updated since 2004!

Wonder what London airport they will fly to, thats if this whole thing goes ahead...

I'm not sure if they still even exist. They came into Stansted for about five minutes, seemed like a total joke airline. I wouldn't go trying to book tickets with them....

Yes they do still exist, in fact they've just expanded the fleet! In addition to the 2 B757's OM ASA/B they've added ex Lauda Air B737-300 OM ASC & this summer they were also using leased B737-300 EC JXD & A320 SU LBI. I would have loved to have flown on their old B737-200 OM RAN before they got rid of it!
