Air Slovakia is expanding with the acquisition of two Boeing 757-200s, the largest, longest-range aircraft the airline has operated. Privately owned Air Slovakia, which flies three Boeing 737-200s, has leased the first 757 - a 13-year-old ex-Air Transat machine - which entered service this month on flights from its Bratislava base to Larnaca in Cyprus. The aircraft will also fly to Kuwait City and points in India. The second aircraft is due to be acquired before the end of the year. Sales director Milos Vrablica says Air Slovakia has UK landing rights for flights to Birmingham and London Heathrow. He adds that that from mid-October the aircraft will be operated to the Maldives and Sri Lanka on behalf of local travel agencies. The aircraft will also be made available for operation by government-owned Slovak Airlines.
