Connection to other parts of Macedonia is available at the bus station in Skopje, from where you have, for example, buses to Ohrid, which is 3 hours away by bus.
- Ohrid Airport — IATA code OHD — (
The airport in Ohrid is officially called Ohrid “St. Paul the Apostle ”, airports are located in 10 northern and northwestern districts of the Ohrid center, unfortunately there is no bus from the airport, so the only way to get to the center is to take a taxi, the same applies if you are going to Struga Which is 10 km west of the airport, a taxi to Ohrid and Struga should be about 8 euros. Since Ohrid is the largest tourist destination in Macedonia, the airport is mainly used in the summer season, but there is also a connection all year round with Euroairport from Basel and London.
In addition to the airports in Ohrid and Skopje, there are small airports with predominantly high-speed runways near the cities, Bitola (Logovardi airport), Kumanovo (Adzi Tepe airport), Prilep (Malo Cognari airport), Skopje (Stenkovets-Brazda airport) and Štip (Airport Susevo), currently it is not planned to introduce commercial air service to any of these airports.
