Skopje's airport to be named "Alexander of Macedonia"

The two international airports in Macedonia, in Skopje and in Ohrid, are likely to be renamed soon into "Aleksandar Makedonski" (Alexander of Macedonia) and "Sveti Pavle" (St. Paul).

The procedure has already begun, Zoran Stavrevski, the head of airports administration, confirmed to the electronic media, explaining that they forwarded the proposal to the Justice Ministry.

The Ministry voiced positive opinion and as soon as the Government endorses the proposal, renaming will take place.

The current names of the airports in Macedonia are dating from the time when Republic of Macedonia was part of the former Yugoslavia.
