August 23, 2020 - Podgorica and Tivat airports will soon be refurbished and modernized to provide greater comfort for passengers, stated the Executive Director of Airports of Montenegro, Danilo Orlandić, adding that close to one million euros will be invested in the business.
 
The goal of modernizing airports is also to provide more funds from non-aviation revenues over time.
 
"Our priority was always the safety of passengers and aircraft. So our investments were focused on the modernization of equipment and technology. Now is the time to improve passenger comfort. The airports provide the first impression for every passenger who comes to Montenegro, and the fight for every guest has already begun," said Orlandić.
 
He recalled that no investments had been mae in the business lounges of either airport for a long time and that these must meet the expectations of the upmarket clientele for which they are intended.
 
Therefore, as announced by the company, approximately 400 thousand euros will be invested in the renovation of the VIP lounge at Podgorica Airport.
 
"According to the preliminary design, the business lounge is designed to use the height of the building itself, so it will take up space on the roof of the existing service block located in the central part of the departures area in the Terminal. The lounge will occupy a space of 135 square meters with about 50 seats," Orlandić explained.
 
Last year, the Airport's non-aviation revenues, including tax-free shops, restaurants, business premises, and advertising space, accounted for 8% of total revenue, or 4.7m euros out of of 35 million euros.
 
"Certain prerequisites are necessary to increase non-aviation revenues. The first is the size of the airports themselves. We cannot build a restaurant when there is no space in the passenger terminal, so we are pleased with the existing solution that will place it above the service bars," said Orlandić.
 
In time, as he announced, space will be made for some further additions to increase the diversity of what is offered to passengers.
 
The business lounge space will be accessed by staircase and elevator, and it will also be accessible for people with disabilities. The existing business lounge area will be turned into an additional useful space for the departures area of the Terminal.
 
At the Airport in Tivat, the refurbishment concerns the VIP lounge, the modernization of Terminal 1, the arrivals and departures hall, and the complete rebuilding of all toilets.
 
"Montenegro's focus on higher calibre tourists means comfort, convenience, and exclusivity. We cannot compete with the most modern European airports, but we can create a pleasant space with a decent range in terms of what products, advertisements, and interior space we offer passengers. Our customer service has followed European trends," said Orlandić.
 
He announced that the start of works could start in October this year.
 
The investment at Tivat Airport amounts to around 600 thousand euros. Reconstruction in Tivat includes the complete renovation of the VIP lounge and its expansion by 40 percent to make the seating area capacity 50.
 
The interior of Terminal 1 will be changed - electrical installations, 12 counter positions, lighting, air conditioning system, ceramics and retiling.
 
The ceilings, air conditioning, floors, passport control desks, and passenger waiting areas will be changed in the departure hall.
 
A complete reconstruction of all toilets at Tivat Airport is planned.
 
Orlandić recalled that the second terminal built in Tivat, being the most significant investment in the last 15 years, relieved the Airport of huge crowds in the summer months, and paid off half of the money invested in just a few months of operation.
 
He said that the night landing project in Tivat would be completed soon.
 
"Our advantage is that this company was among the best-performing in the country in terms of income until the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Some of that money will be "eaten up" by the biggest crisis in the history of aviation. Still, we certainly want to invest in the further development of the Airport and be ready to welcome the years of prosperity that will be ahead of us again," concluded Orlandić.

August 21, 2020 - Montenegro has resolved to restart the Bar-Bari route, on which it ceased operating in 2016. The procurement of a roll-on/roll-off passenger ship to run from Bar to Bari is on the unique list of priority infrastructure projects in the area of maritime transport and would allow Montenegro to restart its operations on the service, which is currently run by Croatian company Jadrolinija, Dnevne Novine writes.

Bar-Bari Service

The ferry connection with Italy started operating on 18th June 1965, and has run regularly ever since, except during sanctions. However, four years ago, Montenegro was left without the ship Sveti Stefan II, which had its classification removed by inspection company Bureau Veritas. The line was taken over by Croatia, whose Jadrolinija transports passengers on the route Bar-Dubrovnik-Bari.

However, as the Strategy for the Development of the Maritime Economy for the period from 2020 to 2030 states, Montenegro is planning to procure a new passenger ship in 2022.

"The Strategy for the Development of the Maritime Economy envisages support for the procurement of a "ro-ro" passenger ship for international maritime traffic and direct regular transport of goods and passengers between Montenegro and other countries in the region. The activity is part of the Action Plan and is foreseen for delivery in 2022," the strategy explains.

August 15, 2020 - Director of Tivat Airport Radovan Marić expects that if Aeroflot cancels flights to Tivat, it will redirect its Montenegro flights to one of its low cost companies.

He said that in the past 30 days, 899 passengers travelled by light aircraft between Belgrade and Tivat, of which the majority, around 750, travelled to Montenegro.

During this period, 246 passengers travelled by light aircraft between Russia and Tivat, most of whom were also arriving in Montenegro.

Low-cost airlines

"I believe, although I have no confirmation, that traffic between Russia and Montenegro will be redirected through one of the subsidiaries of the Russian national airline, i.e. one of Aeroflot’s low cost companies, most likely Pobeda, which would take over flights to Tivat," said Marić.

He stated that the establishment of the route between Montenegro and Russia also depends on the political relations between Montenegro and Russia.

"In general, I think that the traffic between Montenegro and Russia could be feasible," Marić said.

Some media outlets, after the NKT’s decision to open the borders for Russia, claimed that Aeroflot had completely cancelled all flights on the route from Moscow to Tivat for this year, which had been suspended since mid-March when NKT closed the borders for Russian citizens. This was denied yesterday by the Russian airline’s office in Belgrade.

"The Russian market is extremely well-disposed towards us. People from Russia have both small and larger businesses in Montenegro, and there is a long-standing tradition of coming from Russia to Montenegro. The Russians have certainly not forgotten Montenegro," Marić said.

August 13, 2020 - The Russian national airline Aeroflot announced yesterday that it would be cancelling all regular traffic on its routes from Moscow to Tivat this year. The flights had been suspended since mid-March, following a temporary ban by the National Coordination Body on regular air traffic at Montenegrin airports.
 
Even after the opening of airports in Tivat and Podgorica at the end of May, air traffic with Russia continued to be suspended, in spite of the fact that the NKT had recently placed Russia on its non-quarantine list.
 
Aeroflot's decision to cancel the entirety of its planned traffic from Moscow to Tivat for this year came yesterday as an additional "cold shower" on the hopes of Montenegrin tourist envoys that in August and during the post-season in September and October, something could be saved from this year's catastrophically bad tourist season.
 
According to unofficial information received by "Vijesti" from sources close to the management of the Airport of Montenegro, Russian airlines had hinted to them recently that due to a ban from the Government in Moscow, none of them would be flying to Montenegro at all in the foreseeable future.
 
On the other hand, the Russian government is ready to allow Montenegro Airlines to fly on routes from Tivat to Moscow and St. Petersburg, even though neither of the companies will in fact operate between the two countries. This "final word" provides little solace for Montenegrin tourism, considering the Russian market is by far the largest in terms of numbers. Russians have so far come to Montenegro almost exclusively by plane.
 
Aeroflot, alongside Montenegro Airlines, was the only so-called legacy carrier (national airline) flying to Tivat throughout the year. The company was one of the leading business partners of Montenegro's Airports in terms of the number of passengers transported and the operations of its planes at local airports. The Russian national airline officially announced that it would restart the Moscow-Tivat route only at the beginning of the next IATA season at the end of March next year. However, it is uncertain whether Aeroflot will return to Tivat at all. The company intends to focus on the premium long-haul market as part of its extensive restructuring program due to the coronavirus crisis. In contrast, part of its medium-haul lines and corresponding fleet will be left to its subsidiary Rossiya Airlines and low-cost carrier Pobeda.

August 10, 2020 - The National Tourist Organization of Montenegro has organized a study visit by German journalist and writer Matthias Koeffler, who is preparing a tourist guide about Montenegro in German.
 
During the two-week visit, the journalist visited some of the most attractive tourist sites in Podgorica, Cetinje, Budva, Bar, Ulcinj, and the Bay of Kotor. He also visited the north of Montenegro, Žabljak and national parks, to present through his guide what Montenegro has to offer in terms of active nature holidays, which are always of specific interest to the German tourist market. In addition to natural wonders, Kofler will present Montenegro's cultural sights with a particular emphasis on museums.
 
The publishing group Reise Know-How, for which Kofler is preparing a tourist guide about Montenegro, is the leading independent publisher of tourist books in Germany. Since 1981, Reise Know-How has published travel guides for over a hundred world tourist destinations, including Bali, Majorca, Thailand, USA, and others.
 
The study visit of the German journalist was carried out with the support of local tourist organizations from Bar, Budva, Cetinje, Ulcinj, Kotor, Tivat, Zabljak, and Podgorica and Public Enterprize "National Parks of Montenegro".
 
Matthias Koeffler and his wife Marija, a professional photographer, stayed in Tivat last week. The host, TO Tivat, organized a tour of the Solila Nature Reserve, the Buća Luković Summer House, Porto Montenegro nautical resort, and the Great City Park. Pleased with what they saw, the guests pointed out that Tivat has excellent potential for combining natural and cultural heritage.
 
"The main cultural point in Tivat is certainly the medieval summer house in the city center, and Tivat can be proud of its natural heritage. It is the combination of cultural sights and natural beauties that is an attraction, "Koeffler said in an interview with Radio Tivat.

After visiting the nautical resort "Porto Montenegro," Koeffler said that it is evident that care was taken to follow the Mediterranean style during the construction, which is why the resort looks beautiful. Although beautiful, it is not particularly interesting in itself. However, when we look at the history of that locality where there are two intertwining stories - the story of the former Arsenal shipyard and today's marina - Porto can be seen as an attraction.
 
"By visiting Solila, we concluded that Tivat has significant natural potential, from which a lot can be made. Solila is a nature reserve, which should be promoted for tourism," said Koeffler.
 
The guests from Germany were particularly impressed in Tivat by the Great City Park, whose history dates back to its founding in 1892. As the most extensive horticultural garden on the eastern Adriatic coast, with a large number of exotic species brought by sailors from travels around the world, the Great City Park, according to German experts, merits being found in all promotional materials about Tivat.
 
The author of the guide and his wife were truly fascinated by what they saw and experienced in Montenegro.
 
"The tourist guide, a promotional publication in which all Montenegrin cities will be presented, is essential for gaining tourist interest and presenting specific destinations," they pointed out.
 
Impressed by Montenegro as a country of beautiful nature, the Koeffler couple pointed out that German tourists emphasize sustainable tourism, which fits into the strategy of the Tourist Organization of Tivat, which has launched the Green Destinations program.
 
"This is a strong attraction for German tourists because there is a link between bathing and active tourism, hiking, mountaineering, and cycling," Koeffler explained.

The combination of nature, culture, and history is unique, which attracts the attention of tourists, so it is expected that the tourist guide will draw particular attention to the German market and bring more German guests to Montenegro.
 
"The target group of the tourist guide is individual guests who choose the destination themselves, and the focus is on natural and cultural goods. They are interested in culture, art, as well as national parks and active tourism. I bring together information in the guide for them to put together a route of their choice. It is crucial to put culture in focus and connect it with history so that guests get to know and understand Montenegro better. "
 
Especially exciting and impressive, said Koeffler, is the train journey from Bar and Kolasin. It will be particularly interesting for German tourists because they are real romantics, Koeffler pointed out, noting that similar examples should be promoted more.
 
The German couple were also delighted by Montenegrin cuisine, and they especially liked the Priganice.
 
A tourist guide about Montenegro in German will be available in bookstores, publishing houses, tourist offices, and fairs in all German-speaking countries. In the 300-page manual, Koeffler will present attractions from all cities, and the publication will be published in the spring of 2021.

August 6, 2020 - Montenegro opened its borders to Russian citizens two days ago, with the company Airports of Montenegro sending welcome messages on social networks, and the media announcing that the first planes from Moscow will fly to Tivat on August 10 - "Vijesti" writes.

On July 27, the Government of Russia passed a decision on the re-establishment of international air traffic, establishing the conditions for entry for foreigners onto the territory of the country. The first official information regarding flights to Turkey and Great Britain has been published. Although there is no official information, the media also write that airline tickets from Moscow to Tivat are on offer, starting on August 10. Judging by these data, Montenegro could expect the first guests from Russia in less than a week - unless they are deterred from visiting Montenegro by the obligation to have a PCR test when they return home.

The National Coordination Body for Infectious Diseases (NKT) decided to open the borders and allow entry to Montenegro without additional conditions for citizens of the Russian Federation and Azerbaijan at its session on Monday. After the meeting, just before midnight, they announced that the tourist economy's operational headquarters proposed those countries for the "green list," which means that their residents can enter Montenegro without additional conditions.

"Considering the epidemiological situation in the countries around us, the reliability and relevance of available data, as well as the needs of our tourism economy and the national interests of Montenegro, the NKT assessed that there are no obstacles to liberalizing entry for Russian and Azerbaijani citizens," the NKT said after the session.

Yesterday, the Institute of Public Health (IPH) did not respond to "Vijesti" regarding the criteria for opening the borders for Russia and Azerbaijan, and why the Republic of Serbia is not yet on the yellow or green list. According to the data from those countries, Russia has 127.2 active cases of coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants, Azerbaijan 40.49, while in Serbia, the rate is 138.91. For comparison, there are 228.41 infected people per 100,000 inhabitants in Montenegro.

Reporting that Montenegro had opened its borders to Russian citizens, and that they could enter Montenegro without having to meet any conditions, the portal mir-da.ru stated that "the only obstacle is the lack of flights that were canceled at the end of March due to the COVID-19 pandemic."

"However, flight connections could be re-established in the coming days. As announced on August 1, the Russian government is considering lifting the flight ban for all international destinations within ten days, and Aeroflot is already selling tickets to Tivat from August 10," mir-da.ru announced.

Flights from Russia have not been confirmed at airports in Podgorica and Tivat, and there is no official information regarding the flights on the website of Airports of Montenegro.
