Meanwhile, Montenegro could be getting some low cost flights in an apparent shift in government policy. Last year, the Montenegrin Government claimed that no low cost airline was interested in commencing services to their country and that too many incentives would have to be given. The government is now singing a different tune. It now says that it will commence negotiations with 3 low cost airlines: Wizz Air, Ryanair and easyJet. The flights would operate on a scheduled basis. Previously, easyJet claimed it had no interest in commencing flights to Montenegro, Macedonia or Serbia. Currently, there are now scheduled low cost flights to Montenegro.

Air Berlin to Tivat in May
Montenegro to get low cost flightsAs was reported last year, Air Berlin will commence seasonal summer flights from its Nuremberg base to Tivat. The Montenegrin Government signed the deal with a German business delegation earlier in the week. Flights will commence on May 18 and will operate once per week, every Wednesday. Flight details can be found on the right hand side in the new route launches section. Air Berlin is Germany’s second largest airline after Lufthansa and operates with a semi low cost concept. In previous years it has operated charter flights to the Montenegrin coast.
