Montenegro Airlines a.d., primarily known as Montenegro Airlines, was the flag carrier airline of Montenegro from 1994 up until 2020 when it ceased operations.
The airline was founded in 1994 as Montenegro Airlines a.d. after Montenegro gained its independence but didn't start operations until 1997. In 2006, Montenegro Airlines joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA). While in operation, Montenegro Airlines flew to various countries across Europe including Denmark, France, Germany, Slovenia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Unfortunately, the airline's decline began in 2016 when it faced financial difficulties due to competition and economic factors. Montenegro Airlines eventually ceased operations in December 2020 and entered liquidation due to the accumulating losses catalysed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
