Nejat Kurt, General Manager of TAV Macedonia, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership with AEGEAN, stating, “As an airport operator, we are thrilled to announce the launch of AEGEAN’s new seasonal route connecting Skopje with Corfu, as of June 1st. Following Athens and Sarajevo, directly connecting Corfu will be the third destination that AEGEAN launches from Skopje International Airport. This new leisure route is proof that the partnership and cooperation with AEGEAN continue by expanding Skopje’s connectivity. It will provide easiness and comfort for our passengers who want to reach one of the most attractive Greek islands as their vacation destination.”

AEGEAN will operate direct flights between Skopje and Corfu until the end of September, with two weekly frequencies, departing every Saturday (Sunday) and Tuesday (Wednesday). Departure from Skopje Airport will be at 21:35h (local time) on Saturdays and Tuesdays, arriving at Corfu Airport at 23:50h (local time).
