Wizz Air plans Skopje expansionThe low cost airline Wizz Air, which began flights from London Luton to Skopje only 10 days ago, is recording strong passenger figures and vows to expand its services from the Macedonian capital. From September 20 the airline will launch flights from Treviso in Italy to Skopje with more routes to be added during the 2011/2012 winter season. The airline has already sold some 8.250 one way tickets from Skopje to London. Furthermore, it expects to handle approximately 25.000 passengers on flights from Skopje to London and Treviso by the end of the year.
Gyorgy Abran, Wizz Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, said at a press conference in Skopje that this was only the beginning of the airline’s presence on the Macedonian market as the no frills carrier plans to introduce new routes soon. “This is a very good start and we plan to introduce more routes, but we will first wait and see how our current offer performs”, Abran told the press.
Wizz Air has big ambitions for the EX-YU region and it plans to base a second aircraft in Belgrade by the end of the year. The airline also serves Croatia on a seasonal summer basis.
