Czech Skypicker turns overnight into goldmine for airlines and low-cost travelers
From the dusty railway station the taxi takes you quickly far from the hot, noisy downtown. It only takes a few minutes till you slide through narrow, intertwined streets covered by green chestnut trees. You may even forget that you’re actually in Brno, the second largest city of the Czech Republic. During the last decade Brno became one of the most dynamic centers on Central Europe’s start-up and fast-growing company map. As you reach your destination, you look around in wonder. You may even ask your driver if he didn’t take you somewhere else by mistake. The common imaginary about start-ups is that they’re usually born in dark, small garages or in wide, impersonal corporate open-spaces. Well, the new address of Skypicker, a low-cost flight finder and one of the fastest-growing Brno-based emerging companies, is anything but that.

Let´s Return to the Heart of the Matter
"Looking back at what made our country outstanding in the time from the industrial revolution, we can see it is especially extensive industrialization and technologically mature production. By far we are not a country of farmers but a country of industrialists. The question is what it means for our economy for the future, what we will do for living in the next years, what will be our interesting feature for the global market," Oleg Spružina, TÜV SÜD Czech´s CEO ponders on the project and adds: "It is quite clear already now that it will not be cheap mass production but conversely orientation on the combination of smart industrial production and pronounced quality. And quality is the topic that begins to be broached again. It is one of the little parameters in which we can really stand out and link to the historical tradition."
