Skopje and Ljubljana continue to grow

As August comes to a close, Skopje Alexander the Great Airport has continued to record strong passenger growth seen throughout the year. In July, Macedonia’s two international airports, Skopje and Ohrid, handled 128.808 passengers, resulting in a 12% increase and one of their busiest Julys in years. In the first half of 2013 Skopje Airport welcomed 444.869 passengers through its doors, an increase of 18.2% compared to the same period last year. The growth is being driven primarily by Wizz Air. Such trends should continue in 2014 as the low cost airline prepares to base a second aircraft in the city next spring. Skopje is hoping to welcome one million passengers by the end of the year and eventually break its 2000 passenger record when it handled 1.002.000 passengers.

Meanwhile, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has also seen its numbers improve after years of stagnation. Slovenia’s busiest airport welcomed 575.463 travellers in the first half of the year, a solid increase of 7%. More than half of the passengers welcomed at Ljubljana Airport came from London, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Zurich, Munich and Paris. Foreign carriers accounted for the bulk of the increase with Wizz Air, Montenegro Airlines, Turkish Airlines, easyJet and Finnaair all recording solid growth on their flights to and from the Slovenian capital. Adria Airways’ improved performance also aided the airport’s numbers with the Slovenian national carrier holding a 70% share of all flights at the airport.

Ljubljana Airport is expected to see its numbers continue to improve next month, boosted by the European Basketball Championships being hosted in the country. The airport’s improving numbers have also resulted in improved revenue, with the airport recording a profit of three million euros. Next month, on September 16, the airport’s shareholders will decide whether to go ahead with the planned construction of a new multi million euro terminal.

So far in 2013, Skopje and Ohrid handled a combined total of 732.831 passengers, up 17.5% with 8.489 flight operations. The growth is being driven by Wizz Air which is the country’s busiest airline.

In August, Istanbul was the busiest route operating in and out of Skopje, followed by Vienna, Zurich, London and Malmo. In the first eight months Ljubljana made it into the top five busiest as the only EX-YU city. The busiest airlines so far this year were Wizz Air, Turkish Airlines, Austrian, Adria Airways and Pegasus Airlines. Skopje will hope to maintain growth next year as well and possibly reach the one million passenger mark as Wizz Air prepares to base a second aircraft in the city next summer and launch several new routes.

Meanwhile, across the border in Montenegro, Tivat Airport saw its busiest month in history. The airport handled an impressive 203.492 passengers in August, up 28.5% compared to the same month last year. A total of 1.098 flight operations were recorded in and out of the city, an increase of 19.4% on August 2012. In the first eight months of the year, Tivat Airport welcomed 657.257 passengers, up 20.2% and saw 3.921 flight operations, representing an increase of 12.2%. Early results from September indicate the airport will extend its record run with growth anticipated to reach between 10 to 15% this month.

Ex-YU airlines should unite

The Secretary General of the Association of European Airlines, Ulrich Schulte Strathaus, has told the Slovenian daily “Dnevnik” that in order for the national carriers of the former Yugoslavia to survive they will need to unite into a single airline. “The once single Yugoslav market is now fragmented and a regional solution is necessary. The region needs an airline that would cover local needs and connect with global hubs”, Strathaus says. He notes that he recently discussed the issue with Adria Airways’ management. “It would be great if Adria Airways, which has extensive knowledge of the Balkan market, were to initiate a regional summit which would be dedicated to this issue, however, due to political quarrels I doubt this could happen”, Strathaus adds.

The Association of European Airlines counts 34 members, mostly national carriers. Adria Airways, Croatia Airlines and Jat Airways are all members. Montenegro Airlines also used to be a member of the association but mysteriously left after a few months. Strathaus believes that certain markets in the former Yugoslavia are too small to have their own national carrier. He notes that Serbia can’t find an investor for Jat, Croatia Airlines and Montenegro Airlines are operating with mounting problems and that B&H Airlines will go bankrupt when Turkish Airlines ceases financing it.

Last year, an idea to unite the former Yugoslav aviation market was put on the table during talks between the Serbian government and Turkish Airlines. It was suggested that a regional airline, Balkan Airways, could serve as a national carrier for Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia. In September 2011, Croatia Airlines and Adria Airways reached an agreement over a common business plan model. The two airlines agreed to strengthen ties and cooperate on jet leasing as a means of improving efficiency and streamlining fleet utilisation.

Skopje Alexander the Great International Airport

Skopje Alexander the Great International Airport
TAV Airports Holding, in what is a significant step towards establishing itself in Europe has recently undertaken operations of the Alexander the Great International Airport in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. Operating the airport of the capital of Macedonia, which is expected to join the European Union in the near future, has been a rather significant step. The entrance gate of Macedonia, with its strategic location and 500-year past of historical ties with Turkey, was passed through by 657,000 passengers in 2008. Modernization is planned in such a way as to cover the technical infrastructure at the Alexander the Great International Airport by TAV Airports. Thus, it is targeted to contribute to the commercial and tourism relations of both Macedonia, and the capital city Skopje, which are symbols of the ethnic mosaic, and to increase the number of passengers.

Mar Airways will start again

The charter airline MAT Airways will resume operations from Skopje for the first time since August 2011. The airline, owned by the Serbian tour operator Kon Tiki, will launch fourteen destinations from May 1. The carrier will first inaugurate two weekly flights to Antwerp in Belgium. Just over a month later, on June 18, Mat Airways will launch flights to Ancona (3 times per week), Milan-Bergamo (3 p/w), Bologna (3 p/w), Rome (4 p/w), Trieste (4 p/w), Bratislava (4 p/w), Basel (5 p/w), Dusseldorf (3 p/w), Stuttgart (2 p/w), Hamburg (2 p/w), Berlin (2 p/w) Malmo (2 p/w) and Istanbul-Sabiha Gokcen (2 p/w).

The airline owns a sole Boeing 737-500 but is also likely to use Sky Wings International’s Boeing 737-300, which has been sitting at Skopje Airport for months. MAT operated flights last summer but suspended operations due to poor loads in August. The new flights can be booked via the airline’s website. Prices start from 45 euros. MAT could also be interested in applying for subsidies to be offered by the Macedonian government for low cost airlines.

If the flights get off to a successful start it will be a major coup for Skopje Airport which has already seen strong growth this year. In February, Macedonia’s two commercial airports (Skopje and Ohrid) handled 49.031 passengers, an increase of 22% compared to the same month last year. It was accompanied by a 4% increase in the number of operated flights to and from the airports. Recently, Skopje Alexander the Great Airport finally received a public transport bus link to the city centre, allowing passengers easier access to the country’s main airport.
