In the upcoming period, Montenegro expects a large number of new flights, which will connect this destination with emitting markets. As pointed out by the Executive Director of the Airport of Montenegro, Goran Jandreoski, despite the great impact of the pandemic on the aviation industry, he is satisfied with the results so far.
“We must maintain the line, which is very important for Podgorica, on the relation with Belgrade at the level as before, and we can do better.” “Having in mind the crisis and pandemic in the past, we know that the number of passengers is smaller, but we are already close to the numbers we have in 2019 in terms of relations with Belgrade,” Jandreoski said, adding that the government has a new project that includes continuity in cooperation with low-cost companies.
Montenegrin airports are constantly working on negotiations with new airlines, which are expressing interest in coming to Montenegro. Air Montenegro operates with Belgrade, Ljubljana, Istanbul, Banja Luka, Frankfurt.
According to Air Montenegro CEO Predrag Todorovic, their commercial team is working on market evaluation to create a network strategy.
“At this moment, with the number of planes we have and the capacities of these six routes, it was optimal. We are very careful because we have limited capacities, we are very careful to employ them where it makes the most sense, so we will work on our next steps accordingly, “Todorovic emphasized.
As he said, the airline Air Montenegro exceeded expectations both in terms of the number of passengers and the realized inflow, and that it is very important for the state to have an airline that will be in the function of tourism development as the main economic branch in Montenegro.
