Ministry for Transport and Communications is to announce soon new tender for the allocation of financial support for low cost carriers, Minister Goran Sugareski told Monday answering reporters’ question related to suspension of several flights by Wizz Air, which was the only airline that applied at the previous tender.

“Last week, the low cost carriers tender was annulled, because only one airline applied and due to inconsistent tender documentation. The Ministry of Transport and Communications in the next days will undertake all necessary activities and will announce new public call. The Government has provided funds to finances low cost carriers and in this direction this measure will continue and the state will subsidize low cost air carriers,” Sugareski said.
