Airports of Montenegro is welcoming yet another German Airline.
Well-known company Condor Airlines will once again fly to Montenegro after a hiatus of several years, confirms the management of Airports of Montenegro.
Condor will begin the seasonal route Frankfurt-Tivat as of 1st May next year.
The German airline will fly an A320 once a week, on a Friday, until the end of the IATA summer season on 23rd October. Between 26th May and 13th October, there will be an additional weekly Tuesday flight.
Condor until recently was part of the now-bankrupt international tourist giant Thomas Cook. However the German airline, specialising in tourist flights, survived the collapse of its parent company, securing the necessary fresh capital and continuing its operations with support from the Berlin government. Condor Flugdienst Gmbh began operating in 1955, and currently has a fleet of 42 aircraft and approximately 4,900 employees. The company operated seasonal flights to Tivat at the end of the 1980s, and briefly returned to Tivat Airport in summer 2013.
This year also saw regular seasonal flights to Tivat from Frankfurt, Munich, and Dusseldorf operated by German national carrier Lufthansa and its low-cost subsidiary Eurowings, as well as from Leipzig, Munich and Hanover with Montenegrin national carrier Montenegro Airlines. This testifies that the German market, the most significant inbound market globally, has shown a substantial increase in interest in Montenegro and what it has to offer to tourists.
According to unofficial reports, the management of Airports of Montenegro is working intensively to establish a year-round flight connection between Podgorica and Zagreb and is currently in negotiations with airlines on the issue.
