The operator of Pristina Airport, Limak, has announced a new incentives scheme in a bid to attract more carriers. In an agreement with the Unit for Public Private Partnership within the Kosovan Ministry of Finance, and other relevant authorities, Limak will reduce handling fees by 50% for airlines that launch new routes out of Pristina or boost frequencies on existing destinations. The new scheme is primarily aimed at low cost carriers as it will be applicable only for airlines which do not carry cargo or require loading or offloading services. The new incentives will come into effect from the start of the 2017 summer season on March 27. The General Manager of Pristina Airport, Haldun Firat Kokturk, previously said, "We are willing to increase flight numbers and extend our network with additional routes, and we are using our incentive plan to attract airlines in order to catch this growth at a sustainable level".
