Meanwhile, Slovenia’s Adria Airways is believed to be very interested in becoming the designated flag carrier of Macedonia. Adria has been willing to explore new markets and has also expressed interest in Montenegro Airlines’ privatisation process. However, with a greater market, Macedonia would be more lucrative.
Macedonia has been without a national carrier since MAT was grounded in January. Since then, many plans have been proposed for the launch of a new airline, none of which have become a reality yet.
