On Monday 26 January 2015, Tirana International Airport (TIA) inaugurated a new route between Tirana and Bari. Tour and Fly company Balkan Express will operate the route three times per week—on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays—with a Fokker 50 of the airline Air Valle.
“This is very good news for all of us. Tailored to offer short or weekend stays, flights are scheduled at convenient times for Italians working in Albania and will facilitate travel to southern Italy for many Albanians; the flight is just 50 minutes,” said TIA’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Rolf Castro-Vasquez.
An official statement from the operator points out that tickets can be purchased by contacting Balkan Express at +355 4225 1837 or visiting its web site www.balkanexpress.it or from any of its offices or authorized travel agents.
The new route brings to 21 the number of foreign destinations reached by direct flight from Tirana.
Balkan Express also provides notice that, as of 2 March, it will start flights between Tirana and Brindisi, offering very low prices for passengers.
Currently, TIA is preparing to open other destinations in the coming months and continues to offer consistently high standards of security, service and comfort for all of its customers.
