Tivat Airport eyes one million passengers

Tivat Airport hopes to become the latest in the former Yugoslavia to handle over one million passengers in a single year. The airport's new General Manager, Jovan Mačić, estimates that growth will amount to 15% this year. "In addition to significant growth in charter flights, this season we will welcome some of the most renowned low cost airlines such as Ryanair, easyJet and Wizz Air", Mr Mačić said. Late last month, easyJet introduced flights to Tivat. The airport welcomed 895.033 passengers last year, which was down on its record in 2014. The decline came as a result of the political turmoil in Ukraine, which had an impact on summer travel from the country to Montenegro.
