As a result of the interest of tourists from Benelux countries and their positive experiences after spending their summer holidays on the Ohrid and Struga riviera for a second year in a row, the Dutch tour operator "Corendon" has decided to put into use six charter flights per week to the Ohrid-based "St. Paul the Apostle" airport as of next year.
"Corendon" representatives have been staying in Ohrid to sign an agreement on cooperation for three more seasons that stipulates an increase in the number of booked hotel rooms for arrangements of the Dutch tour operator.
"We've decided to extend the contract with our Macedonian partner 'Fibula Air Travel' for three more years. As of next season, two more weekly charter flights from Brussels will be introduced. We are planning in Ohrid to bring over 20.000 tourists from Benelux countries," said Corendon manager Atilay Uslu.
Corendon managers estimate that this season over 15.000 tourists from Benelux countries will spend their summer holidays in Macedonia.
The Dutch tour operator included Macedonia in its tourist offer last year and an agreement was signed for the next three seasons i.e. 2012, 2013 and 2014 due to the huge interest by tourists from Benelux to visit Macedonia. This year, the agreement has been extended for the 2015 season.
