SkyEurope Airlines, Central EuropeÂ’s leading low cost airline, announces its passenger traffic figures for the month of October 2005.

Compared to the same month of last year, SkyEurope increased its passenger traffic by 47%, reaching 151,473 passengers. The load factor increased by 0.4 percentage points to 69.7%

In the last 12 months ending October 2005, SkyEurope Airlines transported in total nearly 1.78 million passengers, an increase of 115% compared to the same period of last year.

Christian Mandl, SkyEurope AirlinesÂ’ CEO, said: "We have seen a strong passenger growth in October with a 47% increase compared to the same month of last year and achieved a further increase in load factor, which reached a level of nearly 70%. In addition to our continued expansion eastwards by opening Bucharest and Sofia as new destinations, we have opened attractive ski destinations for this winter. In October, we started sales for the new routes between London (Stansted) and Poprad, the gateway to SlovakiaÂ’s value for money ski resort in the High Tatras, and the connections from Manchester, Barcelona and Warsaw to Salzburg, as well as the routes from Amsterdam and Paris to Innsbruck, that will offer direct low fare flights into the heart of the Austrian Alps."
