Air Serbia continues to increase capacities on flights to Montenegro
Responding to increased demand in passenger air transport between Serbia and Montenegro, Air Serbia increased capacities for travelling between the two countries, by introducing additional flights and changing the type of aircraft on its routes to Tivat and Podgorica.
In the period from 17 to 30 January, the national airline introduced three additional flights to Tivat, while the type of aircraft used on the existing three flights to Montenegro’s capital was changed. The planned turboprop ATR was switched to the Airbus A319 jet, while the two planned Airbus A319 airplanes were changed to Airbus A320, which has more seats.
"We remain committed to the Montenegrin market, and we will continue monitoring the situation, adapting the volume of traffic to changes in demand. Our goal is to maintain a continuous and strong air connection between cities in the region, and enable all passengers to easily travel to their desired destinations," said Jiri Marek, General Manager Commercial and Strategy at Air Serbia.
The capacities of the national airline were increased on flights to Podgorica on 17, 19 and 24 January, while additional flights to Tivat were introduced on 23, 27 and 30 January. Immediately after Montenegro Airlines shut down, Air Serbia increased capacities for travelling between the two countries, and deployed additional resources at the airports in Podgorica, Tivat and Belgrade, in order to serve all its passengers in the newly-arisen circumstances.
