TIRANA, May 9
Besides the plans for the construction of an airport in Vlora, another airport will be built in Saranda. These two airports will help to normalize the ticket prices, which are sky-high. This was said by Albanian Premier Edi Rama during a press conference he held with the chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines Inc, Ilker Ayci. They launched a project on the establishment of a new Albanian airline supported by the Turkish Airlines. Rama said that the new airline will start its flights this year.
Moreover, he added that the quality of air transport and flight pricing leave much to be desired. According to him, this is related to the inherited concessionary contract, which makes it difficult for low-cost companies to enter the market.
However, he added that the two airports in southern Albania will help to normalize this situation.
Asked by Scan TV about the number of jobs that these two projects will create, Rama said that all the details about the new airports will be official within the next 90 days.
The new Airport of Vlora is expected to have a major impact on economic growth and tourism promotion.
