10 June 2019 - Prime Minister Duško Marković recently hosted representatives of EasyJet, EasyJet Holidays and Karisma Hotels & Resorts. During the meeting, it was noted that Montenegro is an attractive tourist destination which has enormous potential for further development and growth, which is a great opportunity for airline companies such as EasyJet.

"The Government is strongly committed to the development of tourism, but also to improving the overall infrastructure as a key precondition for further progress of this branch of economy," said Prime Minister Marković.

He recalled the plans for valorisation of airports in Podgorica and Tivat, which is crucial for further development of tourism, given that Montenegro is mainly a flight destination.

Prime Minister Marković pointed out that the Government is open to a strategic partnership with EasyJet, which, according to Chief Executive Officer of EasyJet Johan Lundgren, is interested in long-term investments. This company, through EasyJet Holidays, is interested in offering its customers a unique holiday offer in Montenegro, and it is partnering with Karisma Hotels & Resorts, which has a hotel complex in Ulcinj.

EasyJet is considered one of the best low-cost companies. In Europe, it is the second largest airline with over 1,000 routes and, according to company management, exceptional operation and low operating costs.

So far, EasyJet has carried about 60,000 tourists on flights from London and Manchester to Tivat and flights from Geneva. They believe that the potentials of Montenegro, and especially its position in the region, give the conditions for further long-term development and increase in the number of tourists.

“Tivat, the seaside home of the country’s international airport, now benefits from multi-million-dollar marina Porto Montenegro, often nicknamed the Monte Carlo of the Adriatic: an extravagant spot of super yachts, luxury apartments, nightclubs, helipads and the country’s first five-star hotel. Whether it’s to go off the beaten track or to mix with the masses in Montenegro’s rapidly developing beach resorts, the country is embracing its new-found tourist industry and vastly developing as a result. Hinted by experts to be the next hit destination, there’s really no better time to go and see for yourself,” says the info report on Cheap Flights to Montenegro by EasyJet representatives.
