I think none can tell you anything simply because this airline phisically doesn't exist.The only official Macedonian airliner 'Macedonian Airlines' which is that of Olympic Airways doesn't own this aircraft.Besides there's anything special Fokker F-100 painted in red.Virgin aircrafts painted in red are much much better.
That's all with no offense.

I can't see the reg # of this aircraft, but Palair Fokker-100 reg PH-KXL (could be the only one in fleet?) crashed in 1993, killing 79 out of 92 on board. For a more complete report, see:
Sad story, indeed, it was a very beautiful aircraft.
BTW, airlines from FYRO Macedonia (not to be confused with northern province of Greece, also called Macedonia) have a horrible safety record after the breakup of former Yugoslavia. They had 2 or 3 crashes with fatalities, which is exorbitant for a country with 3 airports and not more then 15 aircraft.
