Air Serbia - Montenegro Airlines begin codeshare

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia and Montenegro Airlines have implemented a wide-ranging codeshare agreement. The Montenegrin carrier has placed its designator code onto Air Serbia's flights from Belgrade to over thirty destinations. They include New York, Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Athens, Banja Luka, Beirut, Berlin, Brussels, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Larnaca, London, Milan, Moscow, Ohrid, Paris, Podgorica, Prague, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, St Petersburg, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv, Thessaloniki, Tivat, Zagreb and Zurich. In return, Air Serbia has placed its flight numbers and designator code on Montenegro Airlines' services from Podgorica and Tivat to Belgrade, as well as from the Montenegrin capital to Rome. Previously, the President of the Montenegro Airlines Board of Directors, Daliborka Pejović, said, "The agreement with Air Serbia is an exceptional opportunity for helping us find a future strategic partner, which is the objective of the Privatisation Council of the Government of Montenegro". She added, "We believe that signing the codeshare agreement with Air Serbia is an extraordinary opportunity for the future of Montenegro Airlines. In doing so, we have opened the door of our national airline to enter Etihad Airways Partners, with airlines such as Alitalia and Air Berlin". The Montenegrin carrier had previously said it plans to add another three weekly flights between Podgorica and Belgrade after the deal is finalised. Montenegro Airlines and Air Serbia have registered record numbers on flights between Belgrade, Podgorica and Tivat during the first three quarters of the year. The two carriers handled a combined total of 411.674 passengers, an increase of 2.7% on last year..

  1. So is there any change / optimization of flight schedule between Serbia and Montenegro? Often now departures are within 1 hr (if not less)

  2. The only result of this partnership is the price increase (YM +10 eur, JU +40-50 eur for BEG-TIV/TGD for the next summer comparing to last year). Good job!
