Airports in Macedonia

Macedonia is just beginning to develop as a tourist destination in the Balkans, and therefore there are no regular direct flights from Russia to Skopje on the schedule of any airline. But the charter from Moscow lands weekly at the Macedonian airport on the shores of Lake Ohrid. Travel time is about three hours, and the journey with a change in Belgrade will take a little longer. Aeroflot sends its planes there on a regular basis.

Macedonia International Airport

Two airports in Macedonia - the capital and Ohrid have the right to receive international flights:

  • The Alexander the Great Airport in Skopje is 17 km away from the city center. The transfer is provided by taxis and buses. In the first case, you will have to pay about 1500 denars for the trip, and a public transport ticket will cost an order of magnitude cheaper. The bus stop is at the exit from the terminal, the final station in the city is the International Railway Station. When choosing a taxi, it is better to place an order for a car belonging to the airport. They are equipped with taximeters.
  • The city where the Apostle Paul airport is located is located in the south-west of the republic. Ohrid and the second largest international airport in Macedonia are connected by 9 km of asphalt highway, which are easily covered by bus. Taxi is a more convenient type of transfer and its operation does not depend on the flight schedule.

Metropolitan direction

The first flights to the airport Alexander the Great took in 1989 from Belgrade, then the capital of Yugoslavia. Then, aircraft from Athens, Thessaloniki and Vienna began to appear on the airfield in Skopje..
In 2006, a scandal arose with Greece over the renaming of the airport. Both peoples consider the name of Alexander the Great to be their own historical heritage, and therefore the Greeks were outraged that the Macedonians named their air harbor after the great king and commander.
The airport's takeoff is more than 3 km long and can accommodate heavy aircraft. The main airlines represented in the Skopje airport schedule today are:

  • Adria Airways, Air Serbia and Groatia Airlines fly to Ljubljana, Belgrade and Zagreb.
  • Turkish Airlines connects Macedonia airport with the largest Turkish metropolis Istanbul.
  • Swiss International Air Lines transport passengers to Geneva.
  • Flydubai planes fly to the United Arab Emirates.

Skopje is connected to Düsseldorf, Zurich, Antalya and Split by charters and seasonal flights.
