This air connection would mean that tourists from Serbia will be able to travel to North Macedonia and visit the Ohrid Lake area and region in a faster and more comfortable way. Moreover, this route would additionally open new opportunities for our citizens and for the people in the Ohrid region catchment area since Air Serbia operates and connects over 70 destinations in Europe, the Mediterranean, North America, Asia, and Africa, which is yet another benefit and convenience for our passengers.” – stated Metin Batak, TAV Macedonia General Manager.
