Open Skies between US and Macedonia

Greater chance for US – Skopje flights
The United States and Macedonia recently reached an Open Skies aviation agreement, which will allow airlines from both countries to select routes, destinations and prices for both passenger and cargo services based on consumer demand and market conditions. It is the first aviation agreement between the two countries. “By agreeing on an open market for aviation services now, we are setting the stage for travel and trade between the United State and Macedonia to develop in the future”, the United States Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said. “We welcome Macedonia as an Open Skies partner”, he added.

The Open Skies agreements allow unrestricted access by the airlines of each side to fly to, from and beyond the other’s territory, without restriction on how often carriers fly, the kind of aircraft they use and the prices they charge. The agreement came in to force immediately upon signing.

Currently, no Macedonian airline has the ability to offer any long haul flights. United States based airlines have been weary of operating flights to the region. Croatia also signed an Open Skies agreement with the USA recently. The agreement makes Macedonia the 103rd US Open Skies partner. Macedonia also signed an Open Skies agreement with Qatar several months ago.

  1. If Qatar could redirect one of their numerous Europe bound flights .. just one weekly or even fortnightly service from Doha to Skopje direct, they'd soon see the value of this.

  2. Delta just announced twice daily flights from ATL to SKP using B777, and daily from JFK to SKP with B764. United will fly from EWR to SKP once daily with B777 and American will fly from ORD to SKP twice daily with triple seven.
    Just a joke guys, nothing serious :)
    Anyway, good news...

    I'm surprised that nobody made a post like that, but seriously.

    Good news I suppose. At least the US airlines now feel safe flying over us.

  14. What has happened to this blog the last few days? It seems we have some of the London rioters hijacking it.

    It is really embarrassing to read to be honest.

  15. What the hell happened. We go from the Open Skies agreement to chaos and hatred.

  18. Strasne stvari se desavaju. Iskompleksirani, zavidni, ljubomorni, isfrustrirani i bolesni ljudi samo mogu da budu u stanju da ovakve stvari pisu.

    I have a great idea! Let's fuckin ignore these people that talk nonsense and something that has nothing to do with the topic and post things related to this topic!
    Great news for for Macedonia and SKP airport as well. After Belgrade and Zagreb airports, finally Skopje can proudly say that has been improving under TAV in the past months. Just 1 more month left until the new terminal is going to be opened!

    extremely funny how some people are resolving their frustrations, and most probably none of them has ever been outside of their small mahallas.. You people should really jerk it off and end it already, but somehow I think this brings you to a bigger climax...
    Poor and pathetic...

    P.s. No one is actually forcing you to visit this blog, do us all a favor and boycott it, please..
