Recently, the Montenegrin aviation authority announced that it has extended B&H Airlines’ flying permit. The license has been extended to January 14, 2010. Soon, a new bilateral air agreement could be signed between the two countries which would regulate air traffic between the neighbours. It remains to be seen if B&H Airlines will give Podgorica a second chance or if Montenegro Airlines would claim the route.

Possible return to Podgorica
Podgorica ... take two for B&HAlmost 2 months ago B&H Airlines suspended flights from Sarajevo to Podgorica, only 4 months after they were launched. The airline’s justification for the suspension were poor loads but it has also been revealed that the airline only had a temporary license which expired at the end of the 2009 summer season, in late October. Flights from Sarajevo to Podgorica were resumed after 20 years and the service continued on to Skopje. However, a return ticket between the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro on B&H Airlines amounted to over 150 Euros. Flights operated 3 times per week, with the airline’s regional ATR72. The 3 weekly flights to Skopje have also been suspended this winter.
