“Wizz Air is known to stimulate air traffic in 36 countries by offering very low fares, and we clearly see that Macedonian consumers are as enthusiastic about our low fares as millions of Wizz Air passengers in Europe and beyond. We stay committed to the Macedonian market and the development of the infrastructure of low cost air travel, and in response to the high demand for Wizz Air’s low fares I am thrilled to announce a new aircraft to our Skopje base. The arrival of the 2nd aircraft will bring Wizz Air’s total fleet investment in Skopje to over US$ 160 million. This will stimulate job growth and benefit consumers as we look forward to bring more low fares to Macedonia.” – said John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air.
