The Montenegrin government has appointed a new management team for the country's national carrier. Nikola Vukićević will take over the leadership of the company by becoming the President of the Board of Directors. The 48-year-old has up until now served in numerous local and government appointed jobs, most recently as the General Director of the Directorate-General of the Budget at the Ministry for Finance. Previous posts include the head of the Tourist Centre of Budva, Director of the public enterprise "Museums, galleries and libraries of Budva", the Chief of Staff to the President of the Municipality of Budva and the Assistant to the Minister for Finance of Montenegro, to name a few. Mr Vukićević will have a mandate to turn around Montenegro Airlines' fortunes. The company is dealing with over sixty million euros worth of debt and an ongoing silent protest by a part of its flight crew.
