The new Kukës airport has already scheduled 6 flights per week and it seems that the demand from passengers to and from Kukës is high, as are our expectations for this new project of Albanian air transport, ”said the Chief Executive Officer of Kukës International Airport , Altin Progonati.

“We are very excited and honored that today, on the first day of Air Albania's flights in Kukës, we are almost fully booked. This means that Albanians trust us, not only because we have made air travel easier and faster, but also because we have brought low prices and excellent service. We are proud that the second gateway in the sky of Albania serves all Albanian territories of Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia and Montenegro, ”said Air Albania's Chief Executive Officer, Sinan Dilek.
