  1. Wow impressive growth! Now it`s only 5K difference between SJJ and TGD. Does anyone know what is the busiest foreign carrier at Podgorica? JU or TK maybe?

  3. Keep 'em coming :) The only problem might be potential unsustainability of MA.

  4. Maybe u can help ;) I booked a (very) cheap flight with Wizz and now im wondering about public transport from the airport. Wiki says there is a Bus (Linija 20) that connects the airport with city center but i can hardly find any infos about it. I really want to avoid the airport taxi mafia. What do you recommend? (I dont mind walking a bit to get on some public bus as i will have not much luggage) Thx

    1. You can use HALO TAXI who would charge you 5/6euros from airport to downtown. You can request the cab via viber, as there is free wi-fi on the Podgorica Airport.
