Montenegro to open third international airport

Nikšić Airport to open for commercial use this year

Montenegro is preparing to open its third international airport next year year, in the town of Nikšić, in the country’s west. Over 1.6 million euros have been invested in the airport’s redevelopment since work began in 2012. Local authorities have contributed several thousand euros for the construction of two taxiways (TWY A and TWY C) and two aprons (AP2 and AP3), while 85% of the finances were provided by the European Union Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance. The airport’s runway, which is 1.450 meters long, can accommodate smaller general aviation aircraft, as well as regional planes such as the ATR, with the capacity to seat around sixty passengers. Currently, work is being carried out on the final stage of the project which includes the construction of a control tower, lighting system and a small terminal building.


The country’s two international airports, Podgorica and Tivat, are operated by the state-run company Airports of Montenegro. However, Nikšić Airport will not fall under its jurisdiction. Local authorities hope to operate the airport jointly with a private enterprise through a public-private partnership agreement. “One of the requests is to extend the runway. There is a possibility to do so during this final phase, which would allow larger aircraft to land, especially since low cost airlines have shown interest”, Nikšić’s Mayor, Veselin Grbović, says. He adds, “This is a good project and I believe we will complete it on time”. The final phase of the project is scheduled for completion in September.


Nikšić is the second largest city in Montenegro, while the Municipality of Nikšić is the largest in the country, covering an area of 2.065 square kilometers, which presents 14.9% of Montenegro’s territory. It counts more than 70.000 inhabitants. The airport, locally known as Kapino Polje, is only three kilometers from the city centre. It was built seventy years ago and was used primarily for pilot training. Following the breakup of Yugoslavia, the airport fell into disuse. Prior to its redevelopment, the airport already featured a single taxiway as well as a hangar. Montenegro’s two international airports handled just over 1.6 million passengers last year. The European Union is supporting Nikšić Airport's redevelopment project as part of the Cross-border Air Networking initiative, which aims to strengthen and integrate existing infrastructure of small airports in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Italy.

  4. I don't think this is such a bad idea. Airports of Montenegro would loose their monopoly and they would have to become much more competitive. A few days ago we read that Wizz Air was interested in flying to Kukes. Why wouldn't they fly to Niksic instead of Podgorica and Tivat? It's close to both anyway.

    10. INN-NS, "ne pismeni" se piše sastavljeno kao "nepismeni".

      U dodatku, kako neko ko ne zna engleski može čitati "Manual-e" na engleskom i kako može razumjeti ugovor koji treba potpisati sa kompanijom?
      Kako može odgovoriti na telefonski poziv nekog kolege iz kompanije iz inostranstva?

      Nikako.

    11. Kako direktori i visoki šefovi mogu čitati i razumjeti šta piše u ICAO i IATA "Manual-ima" ako ne znaju službeni jezik odnosno engleski u ovom slučaju.

      Da znaju jezik, i da su pročitali, znali bi da se garaža za aerodromsku opremu ne smije pretvoriti u hladjaču a aerodrom nastaviti raditi bez garaže, kao što je slučaj na BNX-u.

      Kad takvi vode aerodrom zar to nije korupcija i negativna selekcija?

      Niko ovdje nikog ne vrijedja na način koji ti ističeš, to je obično iznošenje činjenica. Medjutim, korupcija i negativna selekcija i te kako vrijedjaju one koji su svjesni iste, nisu korumpirani, a ne mogu ništa da urade.

    14. I dont know if there is corruption in BNX or to what level, but one thing I know is that in all ex yu countries there is drastic corruption levels when compared to rest of the western world ( common sense). I always ask people abroad, why have you left Serbia or the ex yu? Some of the answers are low wage, difficulty getting a job in a fair manner, no future in the field of the studies, constant "ponizavanje" from the bosses ( In Canada this does not occur, if it does consider yourself lucky since you can lawsuit), conflict/war and finally they are sick of seeing all the corruption in the country. Anybody care to add some more?
      Before writing back to this post, all those abroad should consider why they left ex yu? Also those fanboys of Serbia from abroad who come for 2 weeks and say Serbia is great, would you consider living in Serbia for rest of your life with 200-600 Euros per month with no extra funding from family abroad?
      BTW I lived in Serbia for a number of years before that is from where I got the impression on this manner

    15. Dear INN_NS,

      an image was posted in the news, and a guy noticed the airport name was wrongly written, and also claimed many airport names all around former YU were wrongly written but in English. And a discussion about it was held between the visitors of this news.

      What does it have to do with your the last question whether the guy with whom you had some correspondence in Serbian had applied for the BNX general manager position? Nothing I'd say.

      I wish you'd answered his questions about how such directors or high positioned heads could read the ICAO brochures and company's manuals if didn't know the language, and how could they have the airport names written properly in their airport banners if they were not at all or close enough familiar with the language! And if so, according to you, there is no a trace of bribery and corruption in such cases. Interesting.

      I don’t know what you do in Canada but if you think there is no corruption here you are sadly mistaken. Take a look at our roads, highways any other infrastructure in Toronto. Can you explain me how SmartTracks (regional rail) that is supposed to be 52km long, running on 92% of existing GO rails (they need some stations and to electrify it), will cost billions ($6B if I’m not mistaken). In the same time cost estimates for French companies to build subway in corruption ridden Serbia come at 700-800M euros (there is no existing tracks there). What am I trying to say is that there is corruption everywhere. What makes a difference is that economy here is doing good, there is lots of jobs, if you have a good profession you don’t have to look for “veza”. But you never know what can happened tomorrow.

      And before you attack me, I do live in Canada and probably will never leave for multitude of reasons. In the same time I’m trying to be realistic and evaluate everything on even terms.

    17. SM,
      Of course there is corruption in Canada and I agree with everything you said. Corruption is present everywhere although the magnitude of corruption is different in say Serbia than Canada and that is as you said due to bad economic situation in Serbia. I am sure there would be similar scenario in Canada if economy collapsed and there were drastic reductions in workforce. If Serbian scenario were to happen in Canada it might be even worse due to diversity so Chinese would hire only Chinese if you know what I mean by that. That is already happening actually, but it would worsen with deteriorating economic situation.

      You told me before that you lived in Canada so I know your familiar with what is going on here and of course I will not "attack you" lol, we are just having a discussion.

    18. The entire BNX Managing Board should be dismissed immediately since they are not familiar with the IATA recommended practices and they do not understand the work process at the airport, and they do not understand the corresponding aviation-law regulations nor do they care about it

      Let alone the regulations, all the airport equipment would be thrown out of the garage and kept in the open space by idiots only. The airport operator should go under a radical shake-up!

      I've seen it with my own eyes, the airport technical platform, the space under the big technical object canopy and the whole place near the bottom gate looks like a junk yard. The whole BNX looks like a piece of shit.
      It seems the owner doesn't care.
      The worst thing is that the Bosnia Regulator's eyes are closed to all of this. It's all about collapse of the system there.

It's also fine to have dreams and an imagination but seriously stop being so rude towards other users on this blog on a daily basis. Also you show a complete lack of knowledge and maturity in saying point blank that there is no corruption. First of all how on earth do you know that and second you do not live in ex-yu nor do you have as much experience of the place as others on this blog so to dismiss their comments is outright rude and immature.

      Lastly I sincerely hope you are banned from the new forum on this blog as you kill all sensible discussion on this blog and bring a very negative atmosphere.

      I actually still live inToronto. Most kf my life was spent here actually.

      One thing I'd like to correct you. In terms of magnitude, I thinkthat corruption is much worse here. Of course you have to take GDP intoaccount here.

      What bugs me is that it's exactly westerners who did everithing in their power to buy our banks,land, factoriesfor next to nothing.so it was them who bribed locals to buy Smederevo steel mill for 12M, heck they even bombed us to bring right people to power because the before them wouldn't give in.. Now, those same peopleare telling us how oug goverment etc. is corrupt.

    26. На бањалучком аеродрому, некакав карго - 45Т сировог меса за Турску два пута седмично - гура по сваку цијену директор Мирослав Јањић који прије доласка на мјесто генералног директора аеродромског оператора није никада радио ама баш ништа што би могло имати везе са ваздушним саобраћајем, ваздухопловством, или техником везаном за ваздухопловство уопште. Дакле човјек нема ама баш никаквог ни искуства а ни знања везаног за тај посао, посебно нема знања из фундаменталних природних наука. Нити има капацитета да може да научи. Обичан апаратчик који ће слушати и поступати по директиви и потписивати шта треба. Инжењер друмског саобраћаја, радио на аутобуској станици у Новом Граду.
      Прича о том каргу је почела још у октобру, а први транспорти почетком децембра прошле године. Ако занемаримо хигијенске и узмемо у обзир само климатске услове (температуру ваздуха) могло се то сирово месо некако претоварати и на техничкој платформи, а током те благе зиме требало је хитно отпочети изградњу објекта за карго. Од октобра до данас, прошло је 8 мјесеци.
      Умјесто да буде изграђено климатизовано карго складиште, директор улази у небулозан посао преправке гараже за аеродромску опрему у некакву импровизовану хладњачу. Сву аеродромску опрему је избацио напоље из те гараже која је дакле намјенски изграђена за ту опрему. Сада троши субвенцију Владе РС на зидање тог свог Скадра на Бојани у техничком објекту. Механичарска радионица је затрпана којекаквим стварима које су исто избачене из гараже. Кроз ту радионицу се не може лако ни проћи а камоли нешто радити у њој. Гдје он на зиму мисли увести главно ватрогасно возило, које је иначе вангабаритно, највеће до сад произведено у ту сврху (Росенбауер - ТИТАН)?
      Хемикалија на бази комплексних алкохолних једињења за одлеђивање и заштиту од залеђивања ваздухоплова и хемикалија за одлеђивање и заштиту од залеђиванја писте стоје у оригиналним, пластичним паковањима на сунцу. Наравно да постоје услови које произвођач (Цлариант) захтјева за складиштенје таквих материја (гликола).
      Молим некога ко ради карго на аеродромима у окружењу да каже цијену по којој би 45 тона сировог меса било хендловано у нпр Београду, Загребу или Сарајеву? Максимални тежина пуног авиона је 170Т (МТОВ). Мислим да се ради о Аирбасу серије 300, можда је у питању старији модел А306. Еуропалете с месом на истим се виљушкарем узимају из каминских хладњача, те постављају и учвршћују на авио-палете. Некада се јунеће полутке ручно пакују на специјане носаче и постављају на авио-палете. Дакле колико би коштао ландинг и хандлинг?
      С друге стране, нпр Тузла се на прави начин припрема за карго и овај карго који се на овај начин одвија на аеродрому Бања Лука, би лако могао на љето или јесен отићи у Тузлу. Тузла ће испуњавати све услове а Бањалука неће. Те приватне фирме које извозе то сирово месо су из околине Тузле и Травника. Користе аеродром Бања Лука зато што Тузла још није спремна. И шта је директор урадио? Омогућио другом да преузме те послове тек кад буде спреман то јест кад буде испуњавао све услове. А све на штету аеродрома Бања Лука на којем је направио хаос.
      Карго авион који превози то месо на релацији од Бања Луке до Истанбула - 1050 плус 1050км - никада још није узео керозин на аеродрому Бања Лука него га довлачи из Турске. Тиме себи прави додатни трошак али је тако сигуран у исправност горива.
      Ни Ер Србија не точи гориво на аеродрому Бања Лука, а не ради то ни БХ Ерлајнс. То је зато што немају повјерења у гориво ускладиштено у стабилном постројењу аеродрома Бања Лука. Потпуно исправна пословна политика тих компанија јер кад пилоти виде цистерну, све им је јасно. Не требају компаније слати инспекторе да испитају ствар до у детаље.

It's fantastic that the runway is already long enough for planes like the ATR. I completely see that this could be of interest to low cost airlines if they extended the runway farther and like someone said they wouldn't be under the spell of Airports of Montenegro. I don't remember reading the comments to a single article in the last few months where there wasn't a party pooper parade present.

      If by "they" you mean low cost airlines, then Ryan, Wizz or Easy should first pay millions for airport infrastructure upgrades so they can fly there. Great idea, much better than Nis where Wizz doesn't even pay enough fees to cover basic airport expenses, let alone millions required to upgrade airport infrastructure.

      What's more amazing is that Ryan has been moving BACK to that expensive, crowded BRU to hurt competition. Imagine Ryanair moving back from Niksic to Podgorica because Wizz moved in, LOL!

      With Trebinje having airport "ambitions" and Middle East investors looking to build airport in Ulcinj/Velika Plaza, that would bring the number of commercial airports in about 100km range to six (Dubrovnik, Trebinje, Niksic, Tivat, Podgorica and Ulcinj). That's total of only 3M passengers with commerical airport density that rivals London or Los Angeles areas. Makes no commerical sense, why would EU invest in Niksic?

Lot is in Star Alliance so I doubt but lets hope something happens.

  18. OT: Sporazum o vazdušnom saobraćaju između Vlade Srbije i Vlade SAD potpisan je danas u Vladi Srbije (tanjug)

    Wow, that was really fast! Wow!!! But there's more:

    Radujem se što ćemo u narednih godinu dana imati direktan let ka Americi pa čak i ako to ne bude Er Srbija biće mi drago da to bude neka američka aviokompanija jer će to biti dobro za obe zemlje", naznačio je Kirbi

    We heard similar statement few weeks ago and I commented on it not knowing if it's real or not, but second mention means it IS for real! WOW! It could be some US based summer charter (for example National Airlines, not looking forward to it) or one of the Big 3! As I mentioned last time, best option would be partnership between Air Serbia (say, JFK and YYZ) plus AA (ORD, LAX?). WOW!!!

    1. That is possible only if JU becomes an Oneworld member, but it will be barred by EY because of QR.
      So no AA around, maybe only DL.

      Delete
    2. DL is not the right fit based on their hubs, they have no hub at ORD (where ASL will not fly for now, so no opportunity for DL to complement ASL). AA is a perfect fit - JFK, ORD, one day even LAX. AA and EY already codeshare, QR has no say in that. There was no need for Etihad to join Oneworld for AA codeshare and there is no reason for Air Serbia to join Oneworld, Skyteam or any other alliance (and Etihad partnership is an "open marriage" when it comes to this).

    2. we all now that they will start eventually, and you were not right since you said flights will start this March or April. Anyhow happy to see progress in the process but also do not forget nothing is for sure, until I see it I wont believe. Its not like AA announced BEG today or ASL announced YYZ.

      Delete
    3. Najlogicnije je AA mozda iz LAX-ORD sa 788 a ASL iz JFK to bi bilo odlicno .
      a sta ostali misle.

    4. Znaci sve je izvesniji ulazak Srbije u Skyteam a Delta ce obavljati letove za BEG. Air Serbia ce biti zasticena od rizika sezonskih fluktuacija a kao feeder Deltinih letova ce jako dobro zaradjivati. Savrseno.

      Delete
    5. Ni jedna američka kompanija sugurno neće leteti za BEG.

    7. "Ni jedna američka kompanija sugurno neće leteti za BEG."

      Da li si procitao sta kaze ambasador? Zasto bi u dva navrata pominjao da ce mozda americka kompanija da leti?

      Delete
    8. Ambasador je diplomata.. a rekao je: "pa čak i ako to ne bude Er Srbija biće mi drago da to bude neka američka aviokompanija"... dakle niko ništa ne tvrdi.

      Delete
    9. @INN-SNS: no you are not right again about anything. Have you already forgotten that on Wednesday you stated that BIG things was to be announced in regards of BEG concession yesterday.....and just like all the other "scoops" you come with....they are worth zero.

    11. Dobro, diplomata je, niko ništa ne tvrdi. Leteće samo JU.

      A onda na RTS naletim na ovu izjavu premijera:

      Како је додао, "тући ћемо се на тржишту" са америчким компанијама и хоћемо да победимо у тржишној утакмици.

      ??????

    13. a evo sta je jos ambasador rekao
      "И иако ће 'Ер Србија' летети 'ербасом' а не 'боингом' за Америку, надам се да ће неки од делова у авионима, на пример мотори, бити амерички", рекао је Кирби.

      Delete
    14. @10.25 "tući ćemo se na tržištu sa američkim kompanijama" znači borbu ASL na severno američkom tržištu a ne konkurenciju na letovima za BEG.

      Delete
    15. JU piloti već znaju da su ATC u Njujorku poznati su po tome da nemaju strpljenja za novajlije. Uvežbajte se do savršenstva da ne bude kao provincijalac Dasti po prvi put na Kenediju:

  23. I can still remember as it was yesterday when I looked through JAT DC-10 window at those massive General Electric CF6-50 engines as they roared during takeoff at BEG. Well, if you miss GE CF6 you might be in for a treat. From today's news:

    Govoreći o investicijama, Kirbi je kao primer naveo fabriku Dženeral Elektrik, koja već proizvodi delove u Subotici...Biće im ponuđeno, rekao je Kirbi, da prave delove za turbine i druge mašine..."I iako će Er Srbija leteti erbasom a ne boingom za Ameriku, nadam se da će neki od delova u avionima, na primer motori, biti američki", rekao je Kirbi.

    So what does this mean? Well, Etihad has A330-200 with two types of engines, RR Trent 700 and GE CF6-80. Jet Airways only has GE on few of their remainig A330-200. I might be reading too much into this, but I'd say this means Air Serbia will get A330-200 with General Electric CF6-80 engines, same family as the old CF6-50 on JAT's old DC-10's!!! Welcome back, CF6!

    3. RR Trent 700 looks better on the A330 in general ( aesthetically speaking, not sure about economics).

    1. Same. I usually visit this site late at night when I am in bed with the lights off, so the darker theme was easier on my eyes. I think it might be too bright now.

    2. I appreciate all the work you do admin and I will always visit this site regardless of some changes, but this white color is not easy on the eyes. If you do ever consider switching back I think it would be fair to do a vote of some kind (survey) and see what all users like more.

      Delete
    3. Actually black backgrounds are considered worst for the eye. It tires your eye the most. That's why most sites have gone white. Anyway I like it. Much clearer.
