Airlines are further delaying the launch or completely cancelling new routes to cities across the former Yugoslavia, which were to commence between March and July, as a result of the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. The latest routes to join the growing list of cancelled new services include easyJet's London Luton - Ljubljana, Kuwait Airways' Kuwait City - Sarajevo and Israir Airlines' Tel Aviv - Skopje flights. Further changes remain highly likely. The information below is correct as of May 7.

    The list keeps growing :(

    Izmir is a huge blow for SKP. This route has more potential than any German village. What a pity.

    Such a shame that North Macedonia is losing so many flights this summer, including Doha.

  4. Anonymous11:31

    The Adriatic coast will have a brutal summer.

    Quick Question. Will there be Luton to Ljubljana in the 2020/2021 winter season, as I have already booked tickets for that flight in February.

    1. Anonymous11:47

      It doesn't look like it unfortunately. LTN-LJU has been completely removed. They will most probably just move you onto the Gatwick flight.

    2. Anonymous11:47

      you booked a year in advance? wow

    3. Anonymous01:52

      Me too. I have my every month flites from UK to SLO pre-reserved all the way till march 2021.

  6. Anonymous12:36

    How will this affect hotels on the coast?

  7. Anonymous15:06

    I wonder if JU will schedule BEG-Oslo flights anytime soon, seeing as how Norwegian announced earlier this week that they won't operate any inter-European flights until 2021...

  8. Anonymous16:30

    Dublin - Podgorica with Ryanair is now only showing for 31st May... but likely to be delayed even further given that YM has postponed until at least 1st June.

  9. Anonymous18:45

    LOT is moving BUD-BEG from May 27 to Jun 1. That's only 5 days, what's the point?

    1. Anonymous18:47

      Because the airline is grounded until June 1st so they automatically move it to the first date after that. Of course those flights won't launch on June 1st either.

  10. Zadar hit hardest.

  11. Does anyone have any idea what will happen to Cyprus flights? I have one booked of 02 june and there is absolutely no mention of BEG-LCA or any other airport to LCA for that matter... Wizz hasnt cancelled the flight ofc

    1. Anonymous15:01

      The suspension of regular, incoming commercial flights has been extended until at least May 28 for Cyprus. So for now flights may happen on 2nd of June.
