Sky Europe Airlines, a new low-cost airline in the Slovak Republic, is preparing to launch operations with a 30-seat turboprop on domestic services.

The airline is owned by Sky Europe, a joint Slovak/Belgian company, which holds a 50.25% stake. Spanish carrier SwiftAir has the remaining shares. As Flight International went to press Sky Europe was waiting for certification and a licence from the Slovak Republic's airline office and the ministry of transport, respectively.

The single Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia will be operated between the country's two largest cities - Bratislava and Kosice. The company also plans to operate between Bratislava and Zurich.
