AT SKOPJE AIRPORT: TAV WELCOMED THE 1ST LOT POLISH AIRLINES FLIGHT FROM WARSAW

With a festive welcoming of the passengers who arrived from Warsaw, TAV Macedonia this afternoon marked the arrival of the first direct flight from the Polish capital to Skopje, operated LOT Polish Airlines. Passengers arrived at Skopje International Airport onboard modern Embraer jet, and were welcomed by girls dressed in traditional Macedonian costumes and welcome cookies. 

The direct route will operate on regular basis, six days/week during the summer season, except Sunday. The first flight from Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport to Skopje International Airport has departed from the Polish capital city at 10:35 hrs, and has landed in Skopje at 12:40 hrs. Passengers from Macedonia to Poland would depart at 13:20 hrs. This schedule applies for Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The other days of the week, that is, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, Warsaw – Skopje flight is scheduled to arrive at 16:30 hrs in Skopje, while the departure from the Macedonian capital city to Poland is at 17:10 hrs.  Skopje – Warsaw flights takes 2 hours and 5 minutes. 

TAV Macedonia officials outline that they are happy to add Warsaw to the long list of cities connected with direct flights from Skopje.

The introduction of the direct flight between Skopje and Warsaw is a result of long lasting marketing activities, discussions and negotiations. Airline industry, every year is becoming more competitive and they very carefully are taking decisions to select new destinations and enter new markets. Therefore, I would like to thank to LOT Polish Airlines for adding Skopje Airport into their network as new destination. We are expecting that by connecting Warsaw and Skopje with direct flight, more Polish travelers will visit and discover Macedonia, as well as citizens of Macedonia and the neighboring countries to be able to travel to Warsaw directly and experience Poland. Nevertheless, this route will also serve to enhance commercial, economic and political relations between Macedonia and Poland, Alper Ersoy, TAV Macedonia General Manager stated.     

LOT Polish Airlines officials also expressed their immense satisfaction for the introduction of the new route. 

-I am truly glad to welcome Macedonian passengers on board our aircraft to Warsaw starting from today. Thanks to this new connection, passengers from Macedonia gained a new quality of travel not only to Poland and many cities in Europe but also to further LOT destinations worldwide such as New York, Los Angeles or Toronto onboard our state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners all year round. The opening of new route will undoubtedly bind Poles and Macedonians closer while boosting the tourism traffic to Macedonia. We are very pleased that thanks to LOT’s direct flights to Skopje more travelers will decide now to discover this magnificent country, said Michał Fijoł, Chief Commercial Officer of LOT Polish Airlines.

Except for the direct connection from Skopje to Warsaw, the new route enables fast and convenient connection from the Poland’s capital city to several destinations in Eastern and Western Europe and Scandinavia, USA (New York, Newark Chicago, and Los Angeles) and Canada (Toronto).  Flights from Skopje have been planned in a way that transfers on LOT to the USA through the Warsaw hub will be realized only 80 minutes following the landing at Frederic Chopin Airport.    

LOT currently operates to total of 12 destinations on the Balkans. Other than Skopje, during the summer season, the airline will operate also to Podgorica, Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Split, Pula, Zadar, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Sofia, Bucharest, and Cluj-Napoca.

LOT has already announced to introduce four new destinations this year, direct flights from Warsaw to Skopje, Podgorica and to the Moscow Domodedovo Airport, as well as flight from Krakow to Budapest and from Budapest to New York and Chicago.
