The Alexander the Great monument was removed late on the night of February 28 from Skopje’s airport, a few days after that name was removed from the outside of the airport.
The monument was removed by a private company at a time when the airport was not very busy. The monument was placed in 2011 when the Turkish company, TAV, obtained a contract to manage the airport.
This company says that it was respecting the decisions by the government. The decision to rename the airport was made by the government a month ago, as a sign of goodwill to strengthen ties with Greece.
