Former Dubrovnik head to manage Montenegro’s airports


The former General Manager of Dubrovnik Airport, Roko Tolić, has been selected as the new head of operator Airports of Montenegro, which manages Podgorica and Tivat airports. Mr Tolić led Dubrovnik Airport between 2009 and 2018. He is currently serving as the head of Dubrovnik Airport’s Trade Department. Podgorica Airport handled 268.999 passengers during the first quarter of the year, up 5.5% on 2023, while Tivat Airport welcomed 50.785 travellers, up 1.6% on last year but still down 21.7% on the pre-pandemic 2019.

      Bravo EU. With Air Montenegro CEO from EU (Slovenia) and new Head of Airports of Montenegro from EU (Croatia), Montenegro aviation is already one step closer to EU. With EU oversight, financial support and hopefully some guidance from Germany, Montenegro will have brightest aviation future.

      You are not allowed to mention Germany, too many from the Balkans are jealous of rich countries and success.

      I am convinced Germany wants nothing but the best for Montenegro aviation. Hope they will help Montenegro airports, airline and aviation in general reach the current level of aviation in Slovenia, a shining example of what EU can deliver when everone works in synergy.

      You are trying to be funny but you come across as ignorant because you think Fraport = EU. That makes 0 sense

      No one mentioned Fraport. Just a lovely EU community with experts from Germany, Slovenia and Croatia helping Montenegro achieve full potential.

      In the real world LJU is doing just fine. Point to point is OK. For a country of 2 million LJU delivers perfectly. The larger passenger flows of the 2010's were only due to an airline that never made money and picked up low hanging fruit transfers. As a country where the population didn't abandon it due to a high living standard disaspora flights were always minimal, plus the country is surrounded by plentiful airports a short distance away offering choice.

      Fraport/LJU is like a kid not invited to this party but wants to get in repeatedly.

      If -30% if fine then you have no idea what you are talking about.

    10. Anonymous23:06

      Exactly -30% transfer, which bring nothing to the country. Remind me when did JP ever turn a profit.

      Are you one of those delusional people who count only P2P as "real" passengers?

      This thread is not about Fraport and LJU. But since Fraport/LJU cheerleaders want their way in, let me respond to post at 20:24:

      If Montenegro should follow Slo model where flag carrier is gone, second-largest airport is dead for scheduled airlines and is the only EU country not served by Ryan, then Montenegro should be the same: Air Montenegro to be shut down; Tivat Airport without scheduled passenger airlines; Ryan stopping services to Montenegro. Fraport should own expanded Podgorica Airport, traffic should be kept at 2019 levels and people in Tivat should be reminded they are surrounded by Dubrovnik airport a short distance away offering choice.

      What a beautiful aviation future this will be for Montenegro! Long live glorious overlords!

      How is Tivat even remotely comparable to Maribor
