Tivat Airport in 2009

Tivat Airport passenger terminal
Montenegro’s second international airport, Tivat, saw passenger numbers decline by 7% in 2009. As a result, a total of 532.156 passengers were handled, down from 570.636 in 2008. A total of 4.226 aircraft operations took place at the airport, decreasing by 9% compared to the year before. The declining passenger numbers are blamed on the global financial crisis. In total, Montenegro’s 2 airports, Podgorica and Tivat, handled 982.456 passengers in 2009, compared to 1.109.113 in 2008. Notably, passenger figures significantly increased in December of 2009, compared to 2008, thanks to the abolishment of EU visa restrictions for Montenegrin citizens.

In 2009, Tivat Airport undertook an important project – the expansion of the aircraft parking platforms which now allows for aircraft such as the Boeing B737 and Airbus A320 to safely park. The investment was worth 2.5 million Euros.

    If Tivat Airport lowered its taxes and it didn't cost 100 euros to fly one way between Belgrade and Tivat (due to collusion between JAT Airways and Montenegro Airlines) maybe they would see tens of thousands of additional passengers per year? It's cheaper to fly from Belgrade to Vienna than it is to fly from Belgrade to Tivat - who is crazy here?

    I agree with Anonymous.It is cheaper to take ticket to airport Dubrovnik(there is lots of low cost company)and to take taxi to Montenegro ( Herceg Novi Tivat or Budva)

    Try this company In Travel www.intravelmontenegro.net or Taxi Service Montenegro www.taxi-service.me . They have lots of experience in this field.
    It is cheaper if you book it before arrival.
