The second biggest carrier at Prague’s Ruzyně airport, the Slovak-based discount airline SkyEurope, filed for protection from its creditors in Bratislava on Monday. A spokesperson said that the firm had filed for bankruptcy protection ‘voluntarily’, and that the move would give the airline more time to ‘restructure’ and find new investors. In recent weeks, it has emerged that SkyEurope owes millions of crowns to its employees, suppliers and the Slovak authorities. The low-cost airline flies from Prague to a number of European destinations, including Brussels, Rome and Thessalonica.
