Montenegro Airlines is considering introducing flights to Perugia following talks between the carrier, Podgorica Airport and its counterpart in the central Italian city. Umberto Salimero, the head of Perugia Airport, said, "I have held talks with tour operators who highlighted to me that there is strong interest in Montenegro. It is an appealing tourist destinations for Italians, as well as for religious tourism. It is my desire for Montenegro Airlines aircraft to serve Perugia and we are prepared to lend our support in promoting flights between Podgorica and Perugia". Montenegro Airlines' Chief Commercial Officer, Dragan Popović, added, "Our aircraft have been serving Rome for a long time, while we also operate charter flights to Bari. We are very interested in launching new routes and I hope that we realise this new service".

    Nice developments! Is this where the new Boeing 737 will fly to ?
    PEG will also see the launch of Cobrex Trans and a sharp increase of 30% of its traffic. Maybe JU can study the destination as it is currently booming.

    Wouldn't really refer to it as a "new 737", it's wet-leased to fill in the gaps of a summer schedule they can't fulfil with their own metal, hardly grounds to be announcing new flights off of. Coincidentally, the aircraft in question is 27 years old...

    It's good to see progress at Montenegro Airlines but only if they have sorted out their finances imo
