Since the announcement of the route, 4.000 passengers have already booked their flights to Paris; there will be two flights per week, Mondays and Fridays afternoons, onboard one of the new Airbus A320 aircraft purchased by the carrier.
The passengers on the first Wizz Air flight from Skopje International Airport to Paris Beauvais were surprised by a croissant and orange juice upon departure, at a promotional cocktail organized by TAV Macedonia and supported by the French Embassy and the French Institute in Skopje. Departing on Friday at 17:45 and the same time on Mondays from Skopje, the Macedonian and French capitals will now be directly connected twice per week. The proof of the popularity of this destination are the 4.000 tickets booked since the moment of announcement of the route, and the flights will be on one of the airline’s new Airbus A320 aircraft.
"TAV Macedonia continues to fulfill the expectations of its passengers. Paris, after the 3 other new routes from Skopje to Brussels Charleroi, Cologne and Frankfurt Hahn starting this week, is Wizz Air’s 15th destination from Alexander the Great. A walk through Paris and a visit of its most famous landmarks presents a lesson in history, beauty, architecture, and the point of life, while having a coffee and a croissant at a Trocadero café, enjoying the view from the top of the Tour Eiffel, visiting the Louvre, walking under the Arc de Triomphe, strolling down Champs Elysees, having fun in Disneyland or admiring the luxury of Versailles. As of today this is a reality and delight for all those who have longed to visit or revisit the City of Light." - stated Zoran Krstevski, TAV Macedonia General Manager.
