Montenegro Airlines preparing its summer schedule
The Montenegrin carrier will boost its operations from Podgorica to Ljubljana by adding an additional four weekly flights for a total of one daily rotation. The national carrier will also introduce a new seasonal service to Lisbon, linking Podgorica and Lisbon with a scheduled flight for the first time. Flights to Portugal will start on June 22 and will be operative each Monday until September 21.
Montenegro Airlines will add an extra daily rotation between Tivat and Belgrade during the summer season. Belgrade is Montenegro Airlines’ busiest route with the carrier’s passenger numbers on services to the Serbian capital increasing 3% in 2019. Furthermore, the airline will increase its operations from Tivat to St Petersburg, with flights to run six instead of four times per week.
The representatives of the national carier previously said that they are also considering introducing seasonal operations to Istanbul.
Montenegro Airlines is still in the process of finalising its summer schedule. The airline will also operate a number of charter services. It previously noted it would lease an additional E195 jet for the coming summer. Montenegro Airlines will retire its sole operational Fokker 100 jet following the end of the 2020 summer season. The carrier’s CEO, Živko Banjević, recently said, “In the future, the plan is to have a fleet of five Embraer E195 jets, while a sixth plane, of the same or greater capacity, would be wet-leased through an ACMI over the summer season”.
