Skopje, 9 October 2018 (MIA) – A total of 1,8 million passengers passed through the two domestic airports over the past nine months, according to travel data released by airport concessionaire TAV Macedonia on Tuesday.
This is an 18-percent increase in passenger traffic compared to 2017, the company said. The number of fights between January and September was also up — by 12 percent — bringing the total to 15,395 flights.
"It's important to note that our successful negotiations with LOT Polish Airlines resulted in the launch, on Jun. 1, 2018, of the air carrier's Warsaw-Skopje flight, which operates between the countries capitals six times a week," TAV Macedonia general manager Alper Ersoy said.
Also, four new seasonal flights were introduced at the Ohrid airport – to Istanbul, Eindhoven, Tallin, and Warsaw.
Beginning in November, a regular Ohrid-Vienna flight will be launched, as well.
The most popular destination from Skopje's airport is Istanbul (10.8%), followed by Zurich (7.8%), Vienna (5.7%), Basel (5.3%), Malmö (4.5%) and Bratislava (3.4%).
Wizz Air is the leading airline with a market share of 60.3 percent, ahead of Turkish Airlines (7.8%), Austrian Airlines (5.7%), Germania Flug (4.5%), Pegasus Airlines (3.7%), and Croatia Airlines (3.4%).
Thirty-seven regular flights run by 12 airlines head to and from Skopje International Airport, as do four summer charter flights operated by six airlines.
