Wizz Air expands its Skopje base and adds new destinations

The low-cost airline adds its fifth plane to Skopje, capital of North Macedonia, increasing frequencies and adding new air routes.

Wizz Air has recently added its fifth Airbus A320 to its base at Skopje International Airport (SKP) in North Macedonia. This expansion will allow adding new destinations and increasing frequencies in existing ones.

The company began operations in Skopje in June 2011 and thanks to the good number of passengers, it began its expansion plan. The fifth Wizz Air plane on this base represents an investment of 101 million dollars and the creation of more than 30 direct jobs.

The St. Paul the Apostle Airport (OHD) in the city of Ohrid is the second international airport in North Macedonia, and will also add new destinations as part of the Wizz Air expansion plan.

From Skopje, Wizz Air began flights this year to Karlsruhe-Baden-Baden (Germany), Bremen (Germany), Larnaca (Cyprus) and Turku (Finland). These last two opened yesterday.

Meanwhile from Ohrid, in 2019, the air routes to Malmö (Sweden), Milan-Malpensa (Italy), Munich (Germany) and Dortmund (Germany) were inaugurated. From August 2, the flight to the German city of Memmingen will also enter service.

Wizz Air also increased weekly frequencies from Skopje to existing destinations: Gothenburg-Landvetter (from 4 weekly flights to 5), Hamburg (from 2 to 3), Cologne (from 3 to 4), Malta (from 2 to 3), Basel -Mulhouse-Freiburg (from 7 to 10).
