Skyeurope: PRG-FCO-PRG (pics Incl.)

Mon Jun 30, 2008 4:13 pm

Dear All,

here is another trip report of mine. I have purchased tickets for this flight in March of this year when SkyEurope had a sale going on. Roundtrip for 2 people, including the taxes and baggage and credit card fee was approx 50 EUR. Me and my Gf have decided to go from Thrusday to Saturday in order to relax at home on Sunday after we get back before heading to work on Monday.

Since March, time has passed very quickly, and now was the end of June and time to go to Rome for short break.

We arrived to PRG airport around 11 am for our flight 12:30pm. Check in was breeze, took only 5 mins.

Please note, some of the pics are not great, appologies for the quality.

Hi, Ales,

nice story and pix from my favourite European city.
Sounds you had a good time there.
I´ve experienced SkyEurope also for several times, no bigger problems till now.

Hope to read something about your trip to Kosice soon,
for sure something not that much covered here.

Greetings,

Hi Ales,

nice to read this report. Pics are great and clear, Rome city looks nice! Never been there myself till now. For sure some day in the future...
No personal experiences on NE yet, but they still look pretty well OK.

Cheers,
Eric
