Meanwhile, low cost Albanian airline Belle Air, faced with mounting debt, has suspended services to Priština. As a result, Priština no longer has a scheduled service to the Albanian capital. Montenegro Airlines also suspended flights to Priština recently as it faces its own financial problems. However, it’s not all bad news. Jetairfly will commence 2 weekly flights from Brussels to Priština on June 10. Flight details can be found here.

Priština Airport project delayed
New Priština Airport terminal postponedThe takeover of Priština Airport by the Turkish-French consortium Limak Holding and Aeroport de Lyon has once again been delayed upon the request of the consortium itself, the daily “Koha Ditore” reports. A 30 day delay has been requested by the consortium. The airport’s new owners were supposed to begin the construction of a brand new terminal in late January, to be completed by June 2012. However, no work on the new terminal has begun. The price tag for the new terminal is estimated at 140 million Euros, together with supporting infrastructure. The planned investments foresee a 27.000 square meter terminal building, a 77.000 square meter apron and runway, a new traffic control tower, car park facilities with a capacity for 1.750 vehicles and fuel tanks and the refurbishment of airport access roads.
