Low-cost airline Easyjet plans to cease operations between Geneva and Skopje at the start of the 2024/25 winter season. The last flight is scheduled for November 1, 2024. After that, ticket sales were suspended and it is unclear whether the connection will resume in summer 2025. The airline is currently the only operator on this route. The decision comes after a reduction in flight frequency in recent years. In summer 2023, flights were operated four times a week between June and October and twice a week during the rest of the period, while in summer 2024 they will only be operated twice a week.

Easyjet entered the Macedonian market in November 2021 as the sector of visiting friends and relatives recovered quickly during the pandemic. Competition from Wizz Air, which dominates in Skopje, is limited as Wizz Air cannot operate flights between Switzerland and Macedonia due to bilateral agreements. The flights to Basel are considered flights to France.

Easyjet said the closure of the route was part of its strategy to focus on profitable routes that are popular with passengers. Within the former Yugoslavia, Easyjet continues to offer flights from Geneva to Pristina and Belgrade, as well as seasonal flights to Dubrovnik, Pula, Split and Tivat.
