Re: Cheaper flights from Basel to Skopje, Macedonia

Not bad, you can fly for 5 euros if not paying by redit card. At that price you could rent a car from Skopje and go to Greece for a vacation

it is ridiculously cheap
For now. I think Wizzair is subsidised by the Macedonian government.

Quote:
Tickets for Wizz Air’s new flights from Skopje, which launch in autumn, are already up for sale, with prices starting at nine euros. "For us it is important to provide links for our citizens to European hubs at cheap prices. I expect that the offered locations will be quite attractive to the public”, Mile Janakieski, the Macedonian Minister for Transport and Communication said. The head of Skopje Airport says that the subsidies are a win win situation for all sides - Wizz Air, Skopje Airport and the government.

Wizz Air also followed up with Basel / Mulhouse - Belgrade from December 15th; twice a week in low season, three times weekly in high season.

Re: Cheaper flights from Basel to Skopje, Macedonia

Any experiences flying on Wizz Air to report? Would you be happy to fly them again?

Re: Cheaper flights from Basel to Skopje, Macedonia

Yes, couple of times from Budapest. Comparable to an easyJet experience, I guess - though quite cheaper, at least when compared to easyJet's prices ex Geneva and Basel. Not bad, a typical low coster I'd say.
