TAV in talks with Eurowings to introduce flights to Munich and Dusseldorf.

Qatar Airways officially confirmed that on 17 July this year it would begin flying between Skopje and Doha, said Transport Minister Vlado Misajlovski. He stressed that the Government's goal of raising the number of destinations reachable by plane was thus being achieved and that in recent years air traffic in Macedonia had seen some genuine headway.

Simultaneously, TAV Macedonia is in talks with Germany's low-cost airline Eurowings, part of the Lufthansa Group, on introducing flights from Skopje to Munich and Dusseldorf, TAV Macedonia officials say. Eurowings is flying to more than 140 destinations in over 40 countries in Europe.

TAV Macedonia general manager Alper Ersoy adds that TAV Airports is also taking other activities, holding meetings and negotiating with airlines and tour operators. Part of this effort was the visit by Polish and French tour operators to

Macedonia and Ohrid last year. In result, the largest Polish tour operator will start flying this summer from Warsaw and Katowice to Ohrid.

In 2016, TAV brought to Macedonia Europe's largest tour operator, Thomas Cook, which started flying from Brussels to Ohrid. Air Serbia's charter flights between Ohrid and Belgrade and Arkia's charter flights between Ohrid and Tel Aviv began simultaneously.
