Skopje Airport sees double digit growth in record July

Skopje Alexander the Great Airport has registered the busiest month in history and its best monthly result for July on record by handling 201.491 passengers, an increase of 16% compared to the same month last year. It marks the first time the airport has handled over 200.000 travellers in a single month. The growth was fuelled by the launch of four new routes during July, as well as an increase in frequencies on several Wizz Air services. The airport is expected to continue to post strong growth in August, aided by the recent boom in traffic as a result of the UEFA Super Cup Final. During the January - July period, Skopje Airport welcomed 1.004.112 travellers through its doors, representing an increase of 7.8% on 2016.
