Pristina Airport launches new incentives

NEWS FLASH


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".

  1. How dare they?! This is illegal and unfair competition!!! (sarcasm)

    I don't ever want to hear from PRN's representatives regarding SKP's incentive program.

    1. This is a legitimate incentive scheme offered by the airport to airlines in comparison to the direct state aid of MK GOV to Wizz.

    2. Educate yourself before making ignorant statements. The "state aid" you are claiming was offered to ALL airlines that wanted to commence new service. Nothing was provided to Wizz exclusively. Makes a big difference in your argument.
