Aegean to expand its network and connectivity in the Balkans

Skopje is firmly on the Aegean radar. As well as introducing the tri-weekly service to Sarajevo, the Greek carrier has doubled its frequencies to the Macedonian capital from three to six per week, leaving three of its weekly rotations on the route with a ten-hour turnaround between there and back. service, allowing it to introduce additional flights in between. Potential additions, if Aegean seeks to introduce more destinations from Skopje, include Podgorica and Sofia, with the Macedonian government having recently negotiated with its counterparts in Montenegro and Bulgaria over potential services. Aegean Airlines applied for the Macedonian government’s subsidy program for the introduction of new routes from Skopje earlier this year, but withdrew after the tender was declared void.

Aegean this year expanded its operations throughout the former Yugoslavia. It introduced seasonal flights between Athens and Ljubljana, which will operate until October 13, as well as regular weekly summer charter flights between the Greek capital and Banja Luka. Additionally, the airline improved capacity on its Athens – Podgorica flights, moving from the ATR72-600 turboprop to the Airbus A320 during the peak summer months. Additionally, Aegean has extended its seasonal Athens – Zagreb flights until early January, with services expected to continue throughout November and December, and then again in early March next year. For 2024, the carrier plans to increase its operations between Athens and Belgrade from five per week to daily with its A320 fleet, starting June 2.
