Presenting it as an incredible success of the Authorities, the Minister of Finance, Hekuran Murati, introduced that “from July 1, all compatriots who journey to Kosovo with passenger automobiles will be capable of get the insurance coverage coverage without cost.”

The Safety Coverage for the numerous Kosovar emigrants price 30 euros, the equal of two packs of cigarettes within the international locations of the European Union the place nearly all of the Kosovar diaspora lives.

However, this fee of this negligible quantity has by no means been a priority, in comparison with the actual downside for emigrants: the tremendous costly tickets for all those that select the “Adem Jashari” airport in Pristina as their touchdown place.

An enormous assist for expats can be the eventual drafting of insurance policies and laws for the Civil Aviation sector by the Authorities of Kosovo, in order that tickets to and from Pristina on this planet can be roughly aggressive with the less expensive tickets within the international locations of area from the identical locations.

Albanian expatriates have proven that getting a airplane ticket to and from Kosovo has a really excessive price.

Hysni Konjusha, a Kosovar who takes the skyway from Germany to Kosovo and vice versa on a month-to-month foundation, complains about these tickets with costs that by no means decreased.

He has been dwelling in Germany for 16 years now, the airplane tickets with the very best worth on the continent have been shrinking his household price range for 16 years now.

“I do know that expats have paid the most costly tickets in Europe thus far. I’ve written to the politicians, however thus far no motion”, he mentioned.

He factors out that it’s harder particularly for households who journey, as a result of it prices them extra.

“Yearly these costs are very costly, it has nothing to do with inflation or the warfare in Ukraine. I all the time paid 500 euros or 1000 euros for a ticket”, mentioned Konjusha.

He added that the international locations of the area have decrease costs, which is why he usually chooses them when he travels.

“I got here for Independence: in Pristina I paid 450 euros, whereas in Skopje I paid 180 euros. I went to Skopje and there I rented a automotive, it was cheaper there”, he mentioned.

Moreover, Albanian Submit has requested the Civil Aviation Authority of Kosovo (CAA) about this example.

They’ve mentioned that they’ve some duty in financial phrases, however that they don’t have any affect on ticket costs, since they’re decided by the airways and never the airport.

“It’s true that CAA is answerable for the financial regulation of airports, however this implies regulating the aeronautical charges that the airport collects from the airways for the providers it supplies. That’s, CAA regulates the worth of the airplane’s touchdown price, the airplane’s parking price, and never the price (ticket worth) that the airline collects from the traveler for the air transportation it gives,” they mentioned.

From CAA, they emphasised that airline firms have the liberty to find out ticket costs based mostly on competitors available in the market and within the European Union, and in Kosovo they aren’t decided by the state both.

In the meantime, the Kosovo Competitors Authority has mentioned that they act when market competitors is violated, hindered or distorted.

For Albanian Submit, they indicated that they don’t have a mandate to regulate the costs of any services or products.

Nevertheless, they talked about the Civil Aviation Authority of Kosovo (CAA), who mentioned that they make the financial adjustment.

“CAA is answerable for the regulation of civil aviation security and the financial regulation of airports and air navigation providers within the Republic of Kosovo, so that they do the financial regulation of airports and air navigation providers”, they instructed Albanian Submit.

“From the advert hoc monitoring, we are able to discover that there are increased costs than from the international locations of the area (Skopje or Tirana), however there are variations in costs among the many ticket suppliers, relying on the operator and the time of reserving the tickets”, emphasised for AP.

In the meantime, the economist Valon Prestreshi has proven that one of many elements why flight tickets are costly are the tariffs set for all airways from Pristina Airport.

As another excuse, he emphasised “competitors from different airports, the strategy of the state and numerous incentives”.

“Based on the data we have now, Skopje airport is sponsored by the Macedonian authorities. Nevertheless, we have now data that such a subsidy to the airport could also be opposite to the ideas of the free economic system of the European Union, but in addition to the related state. Most often, a lot of these subsidies don’t go the filter of the fee for state support and the Competitors Authorities”, mentioned the economist.

Moreover, he emphasised that this subject doesn’t work for him within the area.

“The excessive costs will be at our airport as a result of the regional airports have discovered more practical and environment friendly methods of managing prices and move by providing extra favorable situations for various airways,” he mentioned.
