Soon in PrštinaGermany’s national carrier has made good on its promise from earlier this year and will commence flights to Priština from March 2011. In an official statement made by the airport, the German giant will operate 4 weekly flights from Dusseldorf. This December, Adria Airways will commence flights from Priština to Munich, Frankfurt and Dusseldorf as well, in what is believed to be a trial run for its Star Alliance partner Lufthansa. Priština is well connected with Germany with Air Berlin, Germania and Germanwings all offering flights to Germany.
The airport also announced that British Airways and easyjet will increase their frequencies to the airport next summer. “We are very satisfied with the interest displayed by new airlines in terms of commencing flights and increasing the number of frequencies”, Agron Mustafa, the director of Priština Airport said. He added that new flights would bring more competition and would increase the airport’s appeal. The airport expects to handle some 1.3 million passengers by the end of 2010.
Priština Airport has recently been renamed to Adem Jashari Internetional Airport, a controversial figure regarded as a hero by some and villain by others.
