Best Time to Book a Flight to the Republic of Macedonia

Since the Republic of Macedonia has a mountainous terrain, the weather can vary greatly depending on the altitude of the city you will be visiting. In general, however, the summers are hot and the winters fairly cold. The country receives a high amount of precipitation per year, more so in the mountainous areas to the west. Generally, the spring and fall months are pleasant and perfect for hiking and other outdoor activities.

Airport and Airline Options in the Republic of Macedonia

The Republic of Macedonia is home to two international airports. Skopje Airport (SKP), located 17 km from Skopje, is the busier of the two. The airport is also known as Skopje Alexander the Great Airport after the ancient Greek king Alexander the Great.

SKP consists of one passenger terminal and is served by over a dozen airlines. Wizz Air is the airline offering the most flight destinations. Though no airlines offer direct flights from Canada to the Republic of Macedonia, multiple airlines offer connections in major European cities like London (Wizz Air), Vienna (Austrian Airlines), and Zurich (Edelweiss Air).

Ohrid Airport (OHD), also known as Ohrid St Paul the Apostle Airport, is located about 9 km from Ohrid. The airport consists of one passenger terminal and is served by ten airlines. However, most of the flights out of this airport are only available seasonally. Wizz Air is the only airline operating year-round, flying direct between OHD and EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (MLH) in Basel, Switzerland.

Arriving at the Airport

Both Skopje Airport and Ohrid Airport have many great passenger amenities, like shops, restaurants, and free Wi-Fi access. Taxis from Skopje are subject to flat rates. A ride from Skopje Airport to Skopje will take about 25 minutes and cost $30 CAD. Ohrid Airport is located much closer to Ohrid, at about 15 minutes away. Taxis at Ohrid Airport are not regulated but you can expect to pay about $15 CAD.

Public transit busses are available at SKP but are not currently available at OHD. There are, however, multiple car rental service counters at both airports for your personal transportation needs.
