First Qatar Airways non-stop flight from Doha to Skopje touches down

The first Qatar Airways non-stop flight from Doha to Skopje touched down at Alexander the Great Airport on 17 July.


The new route to the Macedonian capital will be served four times a week with an Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 120 in Economy Class.

Skopje provides a gateway to a country of dramatic scenery, including beautiful lakes, mountains and charming historic towns. Visitors to Skopje can discover Ottoman-era neighborhoods, shop in the old bazaar or visit the lakeside city of Orchid and its picturesque castle.

Busy summer

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “This summer is a busy one for Qatar Airways, as we continue our Eastern European expansion. Our new service to Skopje is a much-anticipated addition to our global route map, which will enable us to connect both business and leisure passengers to and from Macedonia.”

 General manager, Airport TAV Macedonia, Alp Er Tunga Ersoy, said: “Doha will be a very attractive new destination for Macedonian citizens, for both leisure and business, connecting them with 150 additional destinations across the world.”

 The commencement of air cargo service to Skopje by Qatar Airways Cargo will promote air trade growth in Macedonia by connecting the country with its major importers in northeast Asia via the airline’s Doha hub.
