The airlines operates scheduled and charter services throughout Europe from its hub at Podgroica Airport with a second base maintained at Tivat Airport.
Montenegro Airlines operates scheduled flights to Zurich, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Rome, Paris, Ljubljana, Vienna, Belgrade, Moscow and Copenhagen.
Montenegro Airlines maintains codeshare agreements with Adria Airways, Air France, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines and S7 Airlines.
Air Serbia (S7 Airlines), the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, and Montenegro Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement that provides travellers with greater air connectivity when flying between Europe, the Middle East and North America.
The codeshare agreement was signed in Tivat by Branislav Malović, Chief Government Affairs and Relations Officer of Air Serbia, and Zoran Kostić, Chief Executive Officer of Montenegro Airlines. As part of the deal, Air Serbia will deepen its air links to Montenegro by placing its “JU” code on Montenegro Airlines’ flights between Belgrade and Podgorica and Tivat. In addition, the Serbian carrier will codeshare on services between Podgorica and Rome.
In return, Montenegro Airlines will tap into Air Serbia’s growing network by adding its “YM” code on Air Serbia’s flights between Belgrade and 32 destinations, including Tivat and Podgorica. This will provide unprecedented access between the two countries and offer Montenegro Airlines’ passengers convenient travel options to major cities such as New York, Abu Dhabi, Paris and London via the Serbian capital.

Montenegro Seeks to Lure More Russian Tourists
Despite its often frigid political relations with Moscow, Montenegro hopes to attract more Russian tourists to the country this year.
Montenegro's tourism business is gearing up for the summer, expecting more Russian tourists than in previous years.
On Thursday, the tourism authorities presented the country’s offer at the largest Moscow travel and tourism fair, MITT, saying that, "trends show that more Russian tourists are interesting to visit Montenegro."
“Russian tourists are known for late booking, but also for the fact that in recent years more and more of them come individually. Guests from Russia visit Montenegro mostly during the summer months," the National Tourism Organization said in a statement.
It noted that, compared to ten years ago, the number of the Russian tourist in Montenegro had doubled by 2017.
While the coastal town of Budva, dubbed "Moscow on the sea" has a large number of Russian tourist each year, Russian tourism agencies are interested also in other Montenegrin resorts, such as Kotor, Herceg Novi and Bar.
The head of the Herceg Novi’s tourism organization, Pavle Obradovic, said on Thursday several Russian tour operators who exhibited at the Moscow fair were interested in the town’s offer.
To back up the business, the national air carrier, Montenegro airlines, also announced more flight to Moscow and St Petersburg, starting from March 25.
In addition to the regular flights of Russian airlines during the year, additional flights to Montenegro have been announced during the summer season.
Montenegro’s once close relations with Russia have cooled markedly since Podgorica joined Western sanctions against Moscow in 2014 over the crisis in Ukraine and since it joined NATO.
Relations become even tenser last October when Montenegro said Russians stood behind an alleged coup attempt, aimed at overthrowing the pro-Western government and assassinating the then Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic.
Russia has called the accusations absurd and unfounded, with some media outlets in Moscow ridiculing Podgorica’s claims that its intelligence and security agencies only narrowly stymied a Russian plot.
But, according to the latest data from Montenegro’s Statistics Office, obtained by BIRN, Russians are still coming to Montenegro and make up the majority of foreign tourists.
Visitors from Russia accounted for 26.7 per cent of all overnight stays last year in Montenegro, followed by nationals from Serbia, Bosnia and Ukraine.
Russian also spend the most, 104 euros per day per person on average, according to the National Tourism Organization’s data.

Montenegro Airlines to repay debt of flag carrier
Montenegro's finance minister Darko Radunovic has said the government plans to repay a 5.2 million euro ($6.1 million) debt of flag carrier Montenegro Airlines to prevent suspension of its flights in January The government plans to repay an outstanding debt of Montenegro Airlines that has matured and has put under question the operations of the company, Radunovic said in a video file posted in the YouTube channel of the Montenegrin finance ministry on Tuesday.
The debt of Montenegro Airlines is owed to the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol), Brazil's Embraer Commercial Aviation, Dutch aircraft manufacturer Fokker, UK-based Rolls-Royce Holdings and insurer Generali Osiguranje Montenegro, Radunovic said at a news conference following a government meeting. "The grounding of the aircraft of Montenegro Airlines would inflict an enormous damage to the budget of Montenegro and would hinder the company from operating the flights it has already agreed for December and January," Radunovic said. Montenegro Airlines saw its net loss widen to 11.5 million euro in 2016 from 10.4 million euro in the previous year. The air carrier's revenue went down 3.4% to 65.4 million euro while operating costs rose 2.9% to 75.6 million euro.

Montenegro Airlines to serve Germany from Tivat
Montenegro Airlines (YM, Podgorica) will launch two new routes between Tivat and Germany in May 2018 in cooperation with FTI Group tour operator.
The Montenegrin carrier will operate from the country's main seaside resort to Leipzig/Halle and Munich. Both routes will be served 2x weekly on Thursdays and Sundays from May 3 through October 27, the tour operator announced.
FTI Group will also purchase capacity on Montenegro Airlines services from Podgorica, the country capital, to Frankfurt Int'l and Munich. These routes will be operated 5x weekly and 3x weekly, respectively, but FTI Group will only offer tickets on 2x weekly connections on each route.
All flights between Montenegro and Germany will be operated with EMB-195s.
Besides the growing popularity of Montenegro as a tourist destination competing with neighbouring Croatia, FTI Group named the fact that the country's currency is the euro as one of the reasons facilitating launching the flights.

Montenegro Airlines to increase frequency of flights to Lyon in 2018
Flag carrier Montenegro Airlines has said it plans to increase the frequency of its flights to France's Lyon in 2018.
The company plans to operate the Podgorica-Lyon route twice weekly in the summer season of 2018, Montenegro Airlines said in a statement last week.
Montenegro Airlines currently operates the flight once a week, on Saturday, according to data posted on its corporate website.
In the period between April 1 and September 20, 2017, Montenegro Airlines handled 3,537 passengers on the Podgorica-Lyon and 25,074 passengers on the Podgorica-Paris routes.
Montenegro Airlines operates the flights to France with a total of five aircraft.
Montenegro Airlines to lease in capacity in turnaround plan
Montenegro Airlines has said that the airline will focus on a turnaround plan rather than consider bankruptcy, despite facing debts of EUR37.2 million (USD44.6 million). Montenegro Airlines said he has plans for fleet renewal and network expansion, and is also interested in finding a strategic partner. Montenegro Airlines will adjust its fleet make-up – which currently consists of three EMB-195s and two Fokker 100s – by leasing in higher capacity aircraft of more than 140 seats. A limited supply of spare parts has seen more than half of the fleet grounded earlier this year, a situation which has now been rectified but affected operational performance before.
Montenegro Airlines said it carried a total of 166,375 passengers in the first five months of 2017, up 6% on the year, with 86,000 of them travelling on flights to and from Serbia's Belgrade. Under the summer flight schedule, Montenegro Airlines operates up to six flights a day to Podgorica and Tivat from Belgrade.
We expect that in the period from June 1 to September 30, a total of 110,000 passengers will be transported on that route. Montenegro Airlines plans to increase by the end of the year the frequency of the flights it operates as a result of codeshare agreements signed with Air Serbia and Etihad Airways. In 2016, Montenegro Airlines' passenger numbers grew 0.6% to 581,519.
Montenegro Airlines announced its tax debt restructuring proposal had been rejected by the Montenegro's tax authority.
In this way, Montenegro Airlines tops the blacklist of tax debtors to the country's treasury, with liabilities worth 15.4 million euro ($17.3 million). In a separate statement issued on Wednesday, Montenegro Airlines said it is cooperating with the country's finance and transport ministries on the elaboration of a long-term strategy for the development of the company. Montenegro Airlines will most probably be declared insolvent, as the tax administration has repeatedly warned that companies which fail to reach a debt restructuring deal would face bankruptcy. Montenegro Airlines saw its net loss widen to 11.5 million euro in 2016 from 10.4 million euro in the previous year, as revenue went down 3.4% to 65.4 million euro.
