Tivat Airport studying nighttime operations
The Montenegrin company “Airports of Montenegro” has launched tender procedures to select a consultant which will elaborate and study the advantages of enabling Tivat Airport to handle flights during night time. The winner will have 150 days to finalise its findings in cooperation with relevant state authorities. The deal is worth 450.000 euros. Since its opening over sixty years ago, Tivat Airport has only worked during daylight hours and does not have the necessary runway lighting equipment to remain open more than half an hour after the sunset. If the consultant finds that Tivat Airport’s nighttime operations are viable and justified, the operator would aim to keep the airport operational from early morning until 23.00.
Tivat Airport is crucial for the development of the luxury tourism in Montenegro and the arrival of Lufthansa will bring the Western tourists in our country.
Lufthansa will be operating flights connecting Tivat with the main hubs in Germany – Munich and Frankfurt.
“I am very proud, because this is a historic day for the Airports of Montenegro, since the arrival of Lufthansa is a proof of stability, security and prospects of the company and our country,” said Director of the Airports of Montenegro Danilo Orlandic .
