Thomson to Tivat

Soon in Tivat
The world’s largest charter airline, the UK based Thomson Airways, will commence seasonal services to Tivat from London-Gatwick Airport on May 5, 2010. The airline will be offering holiday packages to Montenegro, as well as selling individual airline tickets. The new arrival could give a big boost to the Montenegrin tourism industry. Packages to Montenegro, with Thomson, can already be booked. The flights will run from May 5 until October 6.

Thomson will be in direct competition with Montenegro Airlines on this service, although the Montenegrin carrier can relax as Thomson’s tickets will only be slightly cheaper. Thomson is no stranger to the EX-YU region, operating flights to the Croatian coast during the summer. The airline also at one time operated winter flights to Niš in Serbia.

Meanwhile, in the first 8 months of the year, a total of 416.076 passengers used Tivat Airport, which is 4.4% less when compared to the same period last year. A total of 3.186 aircraft landed at Tivat Airport from January until the end of August.
