DENSE FOG CLOSES SKOPJE AIRPORT
Almost all scheduled takeoffs and landings at Alexander the Great airport in Skopje have been cancelled due to dense fog.
Only one plane took off at 08:00 a.m. for Zurich. Flights for Vienna, Budapest, Zagreb, Belgrade, Podgorica and Bursa have been cancelled.
Fog also prevented planes from Budapest, Zurich, Bursa and Vienna to land. Some of them have returned and some have been redirected toward the Ohrid airport.
Officials from the Skopje airport say that air traffic will be normalized as soon as weather conditions allow it.
The fog so far causes no major problems on highways in the country. There are good driving conditions throughout the country without any prohibition or restriction for all types of motor vehicles on mainly wet highways in the morning.
Drivers are advised to drive carefully and with low speed, to keep adequate distances between vehicles on roads linking Veles - Stip (up to 100 meters of visibility), Prilep-Kicevo (50 meters), Prilep-Krusevo (30-50 meters), Skopje-Veles (30-50 meters), Negotino-Veles (50-100 meters).
