Osmani plans to be in Athens for talks with Greek officials, his office said on Wednesday. TAV Airports, which operates the Skopje airport, said Greece’s Aegean Airlines will carry out the twice-weekly flights. Skopje and Athens had a direct air link from 2003-2007.
It was stopped after Macedonia’s previous conservative government named the Skopje airport after the ancient Greek warrior king Alexander the Great, angering Athens. Macedonia’s current left-wing government renamed the airport Skopje International Airport in February as a goodwill gesture. The agreement on Macedonia’s name change reached in June is in the ratification process.
