We’ Il never see this Fokker 100 with the Montenegro Airlines colour in the sky again.
Hello everyone and happy new year! 🎉
Let’s go back to 2020, on December 26th, the Montenegrin airline ceased theirs operations.
The last flight was from Podgorica to Belgrade as flight YM103.
In a statement, this airline said:
The Montenegrin government’s decision to shut down our company will have a negative impact on the entire aviation sector in the country. We would like to inform the public that starting tomorrow, December 26, 2020, we are completely suspending all operations.
Montenegro Airlines carried some ten million passengers over the past two and a half decades, with over 350 people loosing their jobs tonight.
This Montenegro Air’s pilot drew a heart when departing Podgorica, destination: Belgrade
Montenegro Airlines was the flag carrier from Montenegro, a country of the Balkans, founded on October of 1994.
His main hub was Podgorica airport, and his second hub was Tivat Aiport…
A new flag carrier will come
The government plans to set up a new national carrier:
We plan to establish a completely new airline, with a different structure and business model. We are aware what that means for the upcoming tourism season because it will take us some six to nine months to establish a new carrier. We will do everything we can for the new company to become operative by the start of the next tourism season. We will start work on the new airline immediately, the Minister, Mr Bojanić said.
