Wizz Air adds four routes from Macedonia

Wizz Air Lubeck

Lübeck Airport celebrated the arrival of Wizz Air’s inaugural flight from Skopje on 1 July. Services will operate twice-weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays.

On 1 July, Wizz Air launched a new service to Nuremburg from Skopje. Christian Vogel, Mayor of Nuremburg, was on hand to celebrate the launch of flights while also enjoying a traditional Macedonian dance on the apron. Flights operate twice-weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays.

On 1 July, Ohrid airport welcomed the launch of services by Wizz Air to Basel. Cutting the cake in Ohrid are: Zoran Krstevski, TAV Macedonia GM; Nikola Bakraceski, the Major of Ohrid, and Marino Gogov, Ohrid Airport Procurement & Administrative Affairs Deputy Manager. The latest route launch from Ohrid follows on from the 10 June, when Wizz Air began services to London Luton.

  • Wizz Air has launched four new services this week on the days of the 30 June and 1 July. The latest routes follow on from the launch of 16 routes by the airline in the previous two weeks. All of the latest airport pairs beginning this week operate with a twice-weekly service, and none of the four face direct competition according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. Although the service from Ohrid is to Basel, Wizz Air is selling the route to the French portion of the tr-national airport at Mulhouse (MLH) due to traffic rights agreement not being available to Macedonia for non-Swiss or Macedonian airlines. See how Ohrid Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
