    I wonder who the targeted passengers are? While London may cater for diaspora, I really wonder what the market should be in BHX and MAN? Or are the holiday package passengers bussed from TGD to the southern part of the Montenegro coast? Simply don't get it......

      Holodaymakers are the main target for all three routes. You can buy packaged tours to Budva and Herceg Novi with Thomson if you use these flights.

      I think TGD is less congested than TIV during summer period. Until now Thomson used DBV for packages to Montenegro so these flights will cater for tourists to the entire MNE coast.

    3. It will be full with Albanian people from Albania and Kosovo suffering high air ticket fares with BA

    It'll be interesting to see Sarajevo passenger numbers compared to Podgorica. Which will be 9th busiest in ex-yu this year?

      It will be Podgorica for a second consecutive year. Podgorica is already ahead of Sarajevo.
