Many Skywings passengers due to fly out of Dusseldorf and Zurich have been stranded at the airport as their flights have been cancelled. Skywings believes that they will be able to resume flights next week. Until then, Mat Airways is the only Macedonian based airline operating flights out of Skopje.

The Macedonian charter airline Skywings International (operating under the name Airlift Service), which took over the bulk of passengers from MAT Macedonian Airlines following its demise, has suffered a similar fate. The airline owes some 133.000 Euros to the Macedonian Flight Control Agency, the “Kanal 5” network reports. Gzime Asani, a spokesperson for the country’s Flight Control Agency, said that they took passengers into account when they made the decision to ground the carrier, “We offered Skywings various arrangements to pay off their debt in the past year but the airline has not made any contributions”.
