Accidents[edit]

On 20 November 1993 Avioimpex Flight 110, a Yak-42, crashed near Ohrid Airport. The aircraft was on a flight from Geneva, Switzerland to Skopje, Macedonia, but had been diverted to the airport in Ohrid due to poor weather conditions.[3]

On final approach the aircraft struck into the Trojan Hills, that lie in close vicinity to the airport. All eight crew members and 116 passengers died. One passenger, identified as Rade Jevremovich, survived the initial impact but died from his injuries on December 2.
