Wizz Air flight touches down at Malta International Airport.
The first commercial flight between Malta and Macedonian capital Skopje touched ground at Malta International Airport earlier today, adding a further link to the Balkan peninsula.
Passengers on board the first flight were welcomed with a cake-cutting ceremony.
Wizz Air, which announced flights to Malta in February this year, will be flying between MIA and Skopje every Monday and Friday.
The Macedonian capital is home to around half a million inhabitants and is famous for its hiking trails and historic quarters, dating back to the Ottoman and Byzantine eras.
Skopje is one of five new routes at Malta International Airport for 2017, the others being Katowice (Poland), Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Bordeaux (France), and Tel Aviv (Israel).
