Malév is upping the number of its flights to Skopje by two a week. Now, together with the new services - flight number MA442/3 - the Hungarian national carrier flies to the Macedonian capital eight times a week.
Malév has witnessed increasing traffic levels on its Skopje route during 2006, with overall growth of more than 16% in the 11 months between January-November compared to the identical period in 2005. In order to meet the considerable rise in demand, the airline is increasing its flight frequency to the capital of Macedonia with a further two flights each week.
With the exception of Tuesday, Malév operates early afternoon flights every day of the week from Budapest to Skopje plus scheduled evening services on Mondays and Wednesdays, which return to the Hungarian capital at dawn the following day, thereby guaranteeing passengers rapid connections to Malév’s West Europe scheduled services departing in the morning, including flights to Paris, Helsinki, London, Copenhagen and destinations in Germany.
A considerable proportion of passengers travelling on this route are transit travellers, who fly in from West Europe and North America to Budapest where they transfer to the Skopje service. Malév offers its transit customers excellent scheduling and with London-Skopje prices starting from £204 return, even more passengers are choosing to fly the Hungarian flag carrier.
