New flights to SkopjeThe national carrier of Bosnia and Herzegovina, B&H Airlines and Montenegrin carrier Montenegro Airlines will commence services to Macedonia from Podgorica and Tivat within the next few weeks. More precisely, B&H Airlines will begin flights to Skopje from Sarajevo via Podgorica from June 17. Using the regional ATR72 aircraft, the Bosnian carrier will operate flights to Skopje via Podgorica twice per week, every Wednesday and Friday. B&H Airlines already operates a direct service from Sarajevo to Skopje. On the other hand Montenegro Airlines will operate services to Skopje from Tivat every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from June 27 using their Fokker F100 aircraft.
The Montenegrin Embassy in Skopje said that this way the two countries will finally be connected via the air. This will allow greater business cooperation, especially in the sphere of tourism. The Montenegrin Embassy in Skopje has been greatly credited for the start of the new services between Skopje, Tivat and Podgorica. Due to an Embassy intervention, the Macedonian airport authorities significantly decreased their handling prices for Montenegro Airlines which has allowed the carrier to leave their aircraft in Skopje over night before commencing its return journey. The low handling prices should also decrease ticket prices.
