Montenegro Airlines has returned its only 112-seat Embraer E190 jet to its owner, GE Capital Aviation Services, today. The aircraft, registered 4O-AOD, is just two years old and was delivered new to the Montenegrin carrier. It departed Podgorica for Lisbon this morning. The airline says the move will generate three million euros in savings and optimise its fleet during the winter. Over the past years, the Montenegrin government covered the leasing costs for the jet, however, since January, the airline has been obliged to do so alone. The current management has accused its predecessors of concluding an unfavourable agreement to purchase the aircraft. Montenegro Airlines now has three E195s in its fleet, along with two Fokker 100 jets. 40-AOD operated its last commercial flight on behalf of the Montenegrin carrier between Belgrade and Podgorica yesterday afternoon.
