Wizz Air is expanding its number of destinations from Skopje in Macedonia.
On 21 March 2016, the carrier inaugurated a service between Skopje and Berlin before celebrating the launch of new Skopje–Copenhagen flights on 22 March and Skopje–Bratislava flights on 27 March.Furthermore, Wizz Air has also announced that from 18 April 2016 it will move its regular Skopje–Lubeck service to nearby Hamburg.
Wizz Air is the largest airline in Macedonia in terms of available capacity, and plans to further increase capacity in 2016 another 22%. Earlier this year, Wizz passed the two million-passenger mark in Macedonia since the start of operations in Skopje in 2011 (adding flights from Ohrid in June 2015). The airline now offers 24 routes from Macedonia to 11 countries.
David Morgan, chief flight operations officer at Wizz Air, stated, “Macedonia continues to exceed our expectations for passenger growth and we are responding with more destinations and low fares. Macedonia not only boasts a rich history but incredible natural beauty as well, particularly around Lake Ohrid. In Skopje, the Old Bazaar, Stone Bridge and Kale Fortress bring tourists from Europe, many on Wizz flights, who quickly fall in love with this country. We are very proud to have a hand in strengthening the economy and multiplying opportunities for the country.”
