The carrier Wizz Air today is launching its latest direct route, which will operate twice weekly between Malmö Airport and the city of Ohrid, with its lovely lakeside location, in the Republic of Macedonia. The new air link will debut on March 18, 2019, and then operate on Mondays and Fridays with an Airbus A320.


Wizz Air’s new direct route to Ohrid in the Mediterranean region is a perfect weekend destination. The city, one of the most popular sites to visit in Macedonia, is located on Lake Ohrid, which connects Albania and Macedonia. It is just over an hour by car from Ohrid to Greece.

“It is good news that Wizz Air is establishing another direct route from Malmö Airport. Ohrid has potential to become a popular weekend destination for families in the Scanian region. The air link makes travel easier for the approximately 20,000 Scanians with Macedonian roots who now have a convenient way to visit friends and family,” says Peter Weindhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport.

Wizz Air established its first air link to Malmö Airport in 2004 and now offers twelve direct routes, including the new route to Vienna, which will be launched in February.  The airline already offers service between Scania and Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, with four weekly departures.
