Skopje Airport Sees Record February
Skopje “Alexander the Great” Airport served 105.265 passengers during February, representing an increase of 3% compared to the same month last year and the best monthly result for February in its existence. The result was achieved despite February being a day shorter this year. So far in 2017, Skopje Airport has welcomed 227.786 travelers through its doors, up 7.8% over the same period in 2016.
Skopje Airport passenger numbers are expected to continue to soar this year with several new flights to attractive destinations due to be launched. Wizz Air is set to maintain its leading position on the airport which has become the low-cost carrier's largest base in the former Yugoslavia. The company will add an extra 21 weekly flights and launch four new routes over the course of the year. The network expansion will be made possible with the stationing of a fourth aircraft in the city starting from July. From Macedonia's second international airport in Ohrid, Wizz will also maintain four weekly flights to Basel, up from three last year, and two weekly services to London Luton.
