Ryanair is going to launch flights from Bratislava to Skopje and vice versa, while the Russian low cost company Pobeda is considering to launch flights from Moscow to Skopje and some other cities on the Balkans.

Skopje Airport eyes new markets

Skopje Alexander the Great Airport says it is “highly interested” in new market opportunities and has identified several unserved or underserved European countries as its focus point. Speaking to EX-YU Aviation News, the airport says, “In addition to the markets Skopje Airport is serving, we, of course, are highly interested in every single new market opportunity. In order to identify the route opportunities, we closely monitor the air traffic flow from/to Skopje on a regular basis. Following these analytical studies, we are then able to define the route potentials and approach airlines across Europe”. The airport has identified western European destinations as most appealing to potential passengers. “The latest studies show us that there are still many opportunities in the unserved or underserved markets of Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom in Europe. Hence, we can say that all markets are important for operator TAV Macedonia, however we are focusing now on those listed here the most”, the airport says.

Skopje Airport currently offers nonstop flights to 31 destinations, up from 26 last year. The arrival of new airlines and the addition of new routes have given Macedonian consumers a greater choice and have in turn boosted passenger numbers at the country’s two international airports - Skopje and Ohrid. “We at Skopje Airport have a healthy mix of airlines including budget carriers (such as Wizz Air, Pegasus and Flydubai) and legacy carriers (such as Turkish Airlines, Alitalia, Austrian, Croatia Airlines, Air Serbia and Adria Airways). We also have leisure airlines such as Germania, Jetairfly, Sunexpress and Edelweiss”, the airport says. Recently, Ryanair said it was in talks with the Macedonian government over the potential launch of flights to Skopje. In an update, Robin Kiely, Ryanair’s Head of Communications, told EX-YU Aviation News that talks with the government are still ongoing at this point.

During July, Macedonia’s two international airports saw impressive double digit growth, as Wizz Air launched five new routes from Skopje and its second route to Ohrid. During the month, the two airports handled 185.811 passengers, up 28% compared to the same month last year. Overall, the two welcomed 823.492 travellers during the first seven months of the year, an increase of 17% on 2014. “We expect the growth to continue”, operator TAV Macedonia says. Istanbul (both Ataturk Airport and Sabiha Gokcen Airport) was the busiest destinations during the January to July period, with a 14.9% market share, followed by Zurich at 9.1%, Vienna 7.1%, Malmo 6%, Basel 5.7% and London Luton at 5.4%. Zurich, Malmo and Memimingen reported the largest increase in passenger numbers compared to last year, while Rome continues to see significant improvement since Alitalia launched the route last year, with figures strengthening from month to month. Wizz Air carried the largest number of passengers so far this year (with a 50% market share), followed by Turkish Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Air Serbia, Croatia Airlines, Adria Airways and Alitalia.

Czech company CSA will operate Prague-Skopje starting from 19 of May 2016. It will include three weekly flights and will operate only as a season connection. Depending on their selling they will decide whether they will keep this route on a year round basis. Also they will operate to Zagreb and Sarajevo.

I looked at google maps and saw there is a railroad line fairly close to the airport. Are there any plans to give the airport a rail link to the city?

Nothing so far, although it would be nice to have a railroad connection between the central train station and the airport.

WIZZ AIR CONTINUES EXPANSION IN MACEDONIA

THREE NEW ROUTES FROM SKOPJE TO BERLIN, BRATISLAVA AND COPENHAGEN

Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced further growth to its low fare route network from Macedonia with three new Skopje services.

WIZZ will connect the Macedonian capital with Berlin Schoenefeld from 21 March 2016, while the new Skopje services to Copenhagen and Bratislava will commence in 22 and 28 March, respectively. Each new route will operate two times a week.

Bratislava and Copenhagen, the capitals and economic centers of Slovakia and Denmark are two new destinations in Wizz Air’s network of 116 airports.

Wizz Air is now offering a total of 24 routes to 11 countries from its two Macedonian airports, Skopje and Ohrid. Tickets on Wizz Air’s newest routes are already on sale and can be booked on wizzair.com. Seats are available from just MKD 599*.

Wizz Air’s Tamara Mshvenieradze said: ”Wizz Air has today once again underlined its commitment to Macedonia as Skopje’s hometown airline. We are thrilled to announce three new routes from Skopje to the capitals of Denmark, Germany and Slovakia, and we are confident that these three new routes will be as popular as the other 21 in our ever-growing Macedonian network. Seats on the new routes went on sale today and we urge customers to snap up the lowest fares on wizzair.com, mobile website or through our smartphone apps. Our Macedonian crew looks forward to welcoming you on board your next Wizz Air flight!”

And CSA provided Skopje-Prague is starting on 19th of May as a seasonal flight.

And this year would be a second record-breaking year for SKP since it will handle more than 1.3 million passengers. As a comparison it had only 600.000 in 2008 but at that time Macedonian citizens needed schengen visa for the EU countries. At this time there are only two visa restrictions from the SKP connections and they are London and Dubai.

Don't forget that around 200.000 macedonians have Bulgarian passport, so for them there is no obstacle for Dubai nor for London. I love to hear the good news from Macedonia

Well there are many speculations about exactly how many MK citizens are dual citizens with an EU citizenship in possession. But if I am asked there are even more since many of them have also other EU citizenship like Slovenian, Croatian, German and many more...

But lets not get off topic, the good news are that the progress is visible and also many Europeans had the chance to see this country because of the connections (mainly to those who Wizz Air is providing).

Hi there!

For Locals for sure is not unusual that in December - January there are fogs on the airport and in the city

I found out on the webiste that the Airport has a ILS of I CAT, which is nice.

I see a lot of divertet flights last days. Hope it will be minimal.
