|Wizz Air to introduce three new routes from Skopje|
Low cost airline Wizz Air has confirmed the launch of three new routes out of Skopje Alexander the Great Airport for a total of 22 destinations next summer season with services to Berlin, Copenhagen and Bratislava. Flights to the German capital will be inaugurated on March 21, followed by Copenhagen on March 22 and Bratislava on March 28. All three will operate twice per week. Wizz Air’s Tamara Mshvenieradze said, ”Wizz Air has today once again underlined its commitment to Macedonia as Skopje’s hometown airline. We are thrilled to announce three new routes from Skopje to the capitals of Denmark, Germany and Slovakia, and we are confident that these three new routes will be as popular as the other 21 in our ever-growing Macedonian network. Seats on the new routes went on sale today and we urge customers to snap up the lowest fares on wizzair.com, mobile website or through our smartphone apps. Our Macedonian crew looks forward to welcoming you on board your next Wizz Air flight”.
The Slovak capital is just fifty kilometres east of Vienna, with shuttle busses running between the two airports. Austria is home to a sizable Macedonian diaspora, while Vienna is Skopje Airport's third busiest route following Istanbul and Zurich. Due to its costs, few no-frills airlines fly to the Austrian capital. Speaking to EX-YU Aviation News earlier this year, Skopje Airport said it was eyeing new markets in Western Europe, including Germany and Denmark. Wizz Air will have no direct competition on any of its newly announced routes. However, it will compete indirectly with Austrian which operates flights to Vienna. The Austrian carrier saw its passenger numbers decline 6% in 2014 , handling 98.602 travellers between the two capital cities.
