Air Berlin to Tivat in May

Montenegro to get low cost flights
As 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.

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.

  1. Could they be trying to get Wizz Air to fly from Belgrade to Montenegro?

  3. Well, if we look at their statements now it seems as if they don't care anymore.. or that they gave up

  4. Montenegro Airlines should be mighty worried. There's no doubt the Montenegro market will grow, but there really isn't enough traffic at the moment or in the near future to guarantee Montenegro Airlines a healthy share of the market. There's no way they'd be able to compete with low cost carriers out of Montenegro, the small population and traffic just won't warrant it.

  6. like both countries would allwo WZZ to fly BEG-TGD(TIV) route. even if the allow them, still WZZ won't be able to compete with those two companies since there are 6 flights a day BEG-TGD and 4 flights a day BEG-TIV in winter season. in order to compete with those two companies WZZ would have to opperate at least 2 flights a day to TGD and one flight a day to TIV in winter season

  7. I do not think they need two daily flights, they can have a daily flight to both destinations and get the passengers that are not going for one day there...

    I think you made a mistake in URL for NUE-TIV schedule (http written twice - httphttp://tesdfdfd.blogspot.com/2011/02/air-berlin-nuremberg-tivat.html), so because of that the page cannot be loaded correctly. :)

  15. Just checked some prices with Air Berlin, random destinations, cannot believe how expensive they are, you can easily find cheaper flight with Lufthansa, Austrian, not even to mention proper LCC such Easyjet, Ryanair, etc. What they think they are, the only airline in Europe???? I am surprised anyone flies with them with all the competition from/to Germany!
