    Great news for PRN! This shows that there is enough demand for both SKP and PRN.

    also there will be 3 new routes launched from SKP. i don't think that this expansion will affect SKP flights to these cities as Memmingen is 3 weekly with a321, DTM is also 3 weekly and Basel market is well covered from PRN with 3 carriers already flying to the city and BSL is 7 weekly from SKP

    Brilliant news for both TIA and PRN !

    PRN-LTN is also being increased from 3 to 5 weekly in winter!!!!
    So, there will be a heated competition with SKP and INI.

    Good luck PRN and big BRAVO!!

    And the new round of subsidies from the Macedonian government was canceled today because the name of the applicant and their official address was not written on the application.
    W6 was the only applicant.
    I think we are about to see a silent war between the Macedonian government and W6...lets see what will happen...

      I also think there is something cooking here.
      My theory is that the Macedonian Government would like to stimulate more diversity out of SKP, and thats why the annulled the tender with the explanation that "an address was missing in the application" and as a result, W6 will launch routes out of PRN which are also served out of SKP

      I really hope that's not the case. If true, then we are back to the "Balkan" ways of doing business and SKP is in trouble.

      Reading too much into it as usual.

      A classic case of "A gde je pecat?" ..

      Скопје повеќе не му требаат нови летови. Германија, Швајцарија и Шведска се покриени. Се уште има надеж да го спасиме Bекше.

      Nice to see Pristina too getting Wizzair flights, no longer will Skopje alone hold monopoly. Would be interesting to see long term development of both airports now that Wizz is flying out of Pristina.

      Wonderful great news for both Pristina and Wizz Air in the future, Keep going PRN!

      Really pleased for Pristina, time for Pristina to benefit from WizzAir's cheap tickets too.

  8. Wizzair has made clever and right desicion, as mostly travelers where from Kosovo and from abroat to Kosovo,but they was forced to use SKP airoport therefore i further recommend to settle to Europe even more new destinations from PRN
