Montenegro Airlines dumps new routesMontenegro Airlines has suspended services to Milan and Brussels which it launched just over a month ago. The service to Milan was inaugurated on April 8 with 3 weekly flights while services to Brussels launched on April 15 and saw the same number of frequencies. Both services operated out of Podgorica, however, the airline failed to attract any interest. The Montenegrin national carrier announced that as part of its cost cutting measures it was bound to cancel the two new routes. It has also been announced that the airline will suspend its flights to London Gatwick, although services to the British capital remain in the airline’s timetable for now.
Montenegro Airlines now plans to redirect its aircraft to Belgrade. It will add an additional 2 daily frequencies to the city, one from Podgorica and one from Tivat after reducing its services to the Serbian capital for the summer season by 15 flights when compared to the same period last year. The additional flights will commence if an agreement is reached with Belgrade Airport.
Montenegro Airlines is latest amongst the former EX-YU carriers to trim its destination network in the past few weeks. Recently B&H Airlines suspended flights to Frankfurt and Vienna while Jat dumped its flights to Trieste.
