Join us and enjoy the beautiful approach above the Lake Ohrid in Northern Macedonia with full ATC service!


We recommend you to fly the Wizz Air A320/A321 from Vienna (LOWW) with a flight time of 1:20h!
You can also fly to/from other Wizz Air destinations: Milan Malpensa, Memmingen, Basel, Dortmund, London Luton or Malmo.

Wizz Air Virtual pilots will get a 1.5x multiplier for flying into Ohrid today! If you’re interested in joining, you can learn more about the VA here: Wizzair Virtual | Wizz Through The Skies | Official Thread


The largest aircraft allowed into Ohrid is the A321/B737.
No pattern work allowed.

Arrival procedures

Runway 02 is used for arrivals. You can request either ILS or visual approach for runway 02 and the approach controller will provide you with vectors all the way to final. You can expect an arrival from the north above the airport and then a beautiful approach above the Lake Ohrid with a short 8 mile final.

Departure procedures

Runway 20 is used for departures. After takeoff do not exceed 190kts, fly runway heading until 3500ft and then make a left turn towards the airport. Once you’re above the airport, you can increase your speed and proceed to your destination.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
