Direct Flights to Montenegro
All Year Round
A question posed by many people eager to visit is how to reach Montenegro. Montenegro is amongst the newer travel destinations on the world map, and sometimes even travellers from Europe are not sure where it is and how to reach it! Well, the thing is - it is quite close; it is in the heart of the Adriatic, and it is already well connected with flights number growing each day!
Located at the 2-hour flight distance to most European cities, Montenegro is an easily accessible destination. There are two active airports in the country, one in Tivat, in the southern region of the country, and the main airport in Podgorica, the capital city located in the central region.
Podgorica Airport is the main international airport which provides services to its passengers to 31 destinations in 19 countries. The airport is approximately 12 km distanced from the city centre, which is 15-20 minutes by car depending on the traffic. Parking is available in front of the airport, from where a taxi or a car can be rented at a reasonable price. With a population of almost 200.000 (30% of the total Montenegrin population), Podgorica is the largest city and the capital of Montenegro and covers an area of about 1,500 square kilometres, which is 10.7% of the territory of Montenegro. It is located at the intersection of several important road directions that lead from the sea to the continental part of the country.
In the southern part of the country, at a 5-kilometre distance from the city centre, Tivat Airport is located. Tivat airport is connected to 19 destinations worldwide. The luxury resorts, Porto Montenegro and Luštica Bay are only a few kilometres away, which makes this airport especially popular. From the airport, private transportation or taxi can be rented.
Airports of Montenegro have signed contracts with most of the world, European and regional air companies such as Montenegro Airlines, AirSerbia, Adria, S7 Airlines, Ryan Air, EasyJet, Austrian Airlines, Alitalia, Turkish Airlines, Wizz Air, Aeroflot, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, FlyDubai etc.
Other than these 2 airports, Montenegro has another 2 or 3 that aren't active, but there are certain insinuations that the one in Niksic (Central Montenegro) will be re-opened for the low-cost flights, which would reduce the crowds in the other two - Podgorica and Tivat.
When it comes to destinations, there are no direct flights from the USA, Canada, Africa, Australia or other intercontinental destinations to Podgorica. But, there are many connection flights around the region, and the closest regional alternatives are Belgrade Airport, Dubrovnik Airport and Tirana Airport, frequently used by many passengers.
