Wizz Air plans to reduce its overall network capacity from mid-January to mid-March due to widespread issues with Pratt & Whitney-manufactured engines. Consequently, they will temporarily suspend operations on two routes—Skopje to Luxembourg and Skopje to Bologna—during this two-month period, as reported by the Ex-Yu Aviation News portal.

In Ohrid, the frequency of flights to Vienna will be adjusted from the initially scheduled four weekly rotations to three.

As part of this adjustment, Wizz Air will halt the Nish to Dortmund route temporarily, and there will be frequency reductions affecting routes in Skopje, Belgrade, Nish, Ohrid, and Prishtina.

The parent company of Pratt & Whitney, RTX, is conducting quality control checks on engines installed in numerous planes worldwide. This process involves the removal and examination of these engines.

In April, the government inked a contract with Wizz Air, a Hungarian airline, to subsidize flights from Skopje to Luxembourg, Stuttgart, Salzburg, and Ljubljana. Additionally, an agreement was established with the German airline Lufthansa for the Skopje-Frankfurt route.
