Wizz Air will introduce 3 new destinations from Skopje International Airport - Bologna and Turin, both in Italy, and Billund in Denmark, while from Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport, the airline will start to fly to Friedrichshafen, Germany.

 

As the airline announces, the first flights to all destinations will depart in December 2021. Wizz Air started with sales of tickets, available online on wizzair.com and through the mobile app.  

 

The new services to Bologna, Turin, Friedrichshafen and Billund will start being operated thanks to the return of the allocation of the 5th aircraft to the Wizz Air base in Skopje

 

We are very happy that despite the ongoing aviation crisis and travel restrictions due to Covid-19, Wizz Air announces four new routes from Skopje and Ohrid airports and deploys their 5th aircraft at Skopje International Airport. We hope that the announced new destinations – Bologna, Turin, and Billund from Skopje, and Friedrichshafen from Ohrid, will be attractive for our passengers, thus they’ll seize the opportunity to discover new cities and enjoy in unforgettable travel experiences”, states TAV Macedonia General Manager, Metin Batak. 

 

As Wizz Air officials inform, these new destinations are unique for their culture, nature and hospitality. Known for its famous towers, churches and lengthy porticoes, Bologna is one of the most popular cities in Italy. The city has a large student population that gives it a cosmopolitan character. Turin on the other side is known for its refined architecture and cuisine. The city of Billund is home to the second largest airport in Denmark and is an entertainment hotspot in Europe, providing attractions for all family members, especially little ones thanks to the famous Legoland. Situated directly on the shores of Lake Constance, Friedrichshafen is naturally all about action and fun in, around and on the water.

“We are happy to announce the expansion of our route network from North Macedonia to new destinations in Italy, Germany and Denmark. With the new services from Skopje to Bologna, Turin and to Billund, and from Ohrid to Friedrichshafen Wizz Air is offering even more diversity in terms of destinations to Macedonians. Everyone can enjoy ultra-low fares and travel safe to their new favourite city break destination to discover new places on board of our modern aircraft. We look forward to welcome on board the first passengers to these new exciting destinations.”, said Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air.

TAV Macedonia underlines that as an airport operator they have taken strict health and safety precaution measures to prevent spread of Covid-19 in its airports premises. As a result, Skopje International Airport and Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport are accredited by Airports Council International (ACI) in ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation Program, which is a new international health benchmark for airports around the world, designed to help reassure the travelling public that airport facilities remain safe and that precautions are being taken to reduce any risk to their health.


 

TAV Macedonia officials remind all passengers to respect the announced health and safety measures, meaning not to come to the airport if they have illness symptoms, to wear a mask all the time, to maintain a physical distance and high level of personal hygiene.

At the same time, as of 19th August 2021, in line with the new Government measures, TAV Macedonia introduced new rules for entrance in the terminal buildings of both airports: presenting either vaccination certificate, either certificate that confirms having recovered from Covid-19 in the last 45 days, either a medical certificate of a negative Covid-19 test, PCR not older than 72 hours, or rapid antigen not older than 48 hours. These rules do not apply to persons under the age of 18.

 

Wizz Air continues to be in the forefront of the industry having implemented stringent health and hygiene measures to protect passengers and crew. Whilst the HEPA filters of all Wizz Air aircraft already filter out 99.97% of viruses and bacteria from the air, Wizz Air’s protocols support physical distancing guidelines, ensure an ultra-clean environment on board and reduce any non-essential human interaction and physical contact, so that WIZZ passengers can feel confident that they are travelling to their destination safely.

 

Wizz Air advises passengers to check travel regulations prior to the start of their trip. With the latest enhancements of the WIZZ Travel Planning Map, passengers can check travel restrictions updates within the WIZZ network. The colour-coded site lays out a comprehensive map of possible destinations travellers can embark on, with relevant links to government websites, travel pages, and any forms that have to be filled out prior to departure.

 

For extra peace of mind, Wizz Air recommends that passengers add WIZZ Flex to their booking, for an extra layer of protection. By doing so, passengers can choose to travel on a different date, or to a different destination as well as having the option to cancel their flight up to 3 hours before departure without any fee and get 100% of the original fare immediately reimbursed in airline credit.
