How to get to | Kosovo


There are buses from all nearby countries (including Serbia) to the capital Pristina, although only Istanbul has direct long-distance service. For those not travelling around the Balkans, the easiest way to reach Kosovo is to fly using one of the following airlines:

  • Star Alliance - Adria, Austrian, Croatia, SAS (seasonal), Turkish
  • Oneworld - British Airways, Malev
  • Skyteam - none (yet) I think
The number of airlines flying to Pristina has grown rapidly in the past year, and I'd expect further growth so check with your airline or alliance of choice even if it is not listed above. Also some airlines currently flying may reduce or cease service if demand doesn't meet their expectations.

Low cost airlines haven't yet established flights to Kosovo and so fares are higher than other nearby places. However it is still easy to get discounted fares and awards.

TIP land travel in the region has never been easier. Save your money or miles for somewhere harder or more expensive to get to.
