Montenegro Airlines summer 2009
Nothing new except Copenhagen

Montenegro Airlines in summer 2009


The 2009 summer season starts on Sunday, Mach 29. The national carrier of Montenegro will not include any major changes to its scheduling when compared to its winter season operations. Most interestingly the carrier will cut capacity from Podgorica to its key market – Serbia. Montenegro Airlines will operate 22 weekly flights from the country’s capital to Belgrade compared to 26 this winter. Instead, capacity will be increased from Tivat to Belgrade (from 14 weekly flights to 22). Flights from Tivat to Milan will be discontinued due to poor passenger figures on this line. Other services will stay the same with no or small increases in frequencies. Montenegro Airlines will operate 3 weekly flights to Vienna from Podgorica while it will code share with Austrian Airlines under flight number YM4501 the other 4 days of the week. It will also code share to Ljubljana with Adria Airways (with some flights operated by Montenegro Airlines and some by Adria). In its preliminary schedule the airline has not included its Tivat to Niš service which was operated last year during the summer.

Montenegro Airlines will receive its second Embraer ERJ195 aircraft in May this year. The airline will commence its regular summer charter flights from May and they will operate until the end of September. Despite announcements that the carrier will start new flights to Copenhagen, Priština, Skopje and Sarajevo they have not been listed in the summer schedule.
