Kosovo bans flights from European markets


Starting today at 15.00 CET, Kosovo will ban all arriving and departing flights at Pristina Airport to and from Switzerland, Germany, France and Italy in a bid to stem the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak. All services from these countries will be discontinued until further notice. Switzerland and Germany are Kosovo’s two largest air markets, accounting for 37% and 33% of all of Pristina Airport’s passenger traffic last year respectively. Italy accounted for less than 1% of all travellers in 2019, while France was below 1%.

    at first i thought crazy but when you think that half of the medical stuff from the Balkans migrated to the west maybe not that crazy.

    they could close the airport with D and CH suspended

    btw France is important because of Basel airport !
