Adria Airways is considering operating flights from Kukes in north-eastern Albania, close to Kosovo, according to the Albanian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. It comes after Albania's government and the operator of Tirana Airport decided to scrap an exclusivity clause, which prohibited airlines from flying anywhere else in the country other than Tirana. The Director of Projects and PPP's at the Albanian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, Krislen Keri, said that Adria, Wizz Air and Ryanair have all shown interest in flying to Kukes. Once the Tirana exclusivity clause is dropped, Kukes Airport hopes to handle 150.000 passengers during its first year and grow by 10% each year until 2025. Adria Airways operates flights from Tirana to Ljubljana, Munich and Frankfurt but suspended services from the Albanian capital to Paris and Brussels earlier this year.
