SmartLynx Airlines opens Prishtina base

Latvian charter carrier SmartLynx Airlines opened its base in Pristina late last week by stationing an Airbus A320 aircraft in the city.

Contracted by tour operator PrishtinaJET, the airline also inaugurated its first services from Kosovo to Munich and Stuttgart.

The tour operator previously noted the carrier would base two A320s in Prishtina and launch operations to Basel and Dusseldorf, in addition to Stuttgart and Munich.

The new base will result in 33 new jobs, which will grow to sixty in the coming period.

PrishtinaJET was established by a group of investors from the aviation industry, as well as professionals from the tourism and travel sectors.
