Montenegro’s largest and most modern airport is immediately south of the capital Podgorica. The entire south of the country and everywhere as far north as Kolašin is within 100km of this airport. If you’re wondering about the airport code, the TGD is a hangover from Podgorica’s previous name Titograd. Locals sometimes call it Golubovci airport as it’s close to a village with that name. The airport’s safety record is blemished only by a small plane skidding while landing in snowy conditions in 2005; there were no serious injuries.
The second international airport at Tivat is well positioned for holidaymakers heading to the Bay of Kotor or Budva and now welcomes over half a million passengers annually. Despite its mountainous surrounds and a runway that ends only 100m from the water, there has never been an accident here.
Montenegro’s de facto third airport is actually in neighbouring Croatia. Dubrovnik airport is a modern facility only 17km from the border and the closest airport to Herceg Novi. Commonly referred to locally as Čilipi airport, it’s used by over 1.3 million travellers annually.
The word for airport in Montenegrin is aerodrom (аеродром). This was also used in Croatia until independence but in a fit of French-style linguistic nationalism the official Croatian term has been changed to a direct translation of the words for ‘air’ and ‘port’, zračna luka – a potential trap for English speakers.
Montenegro Airlines is the national carrier, running a small fleet of 102- to 116-seater planes. Apart from the skid at Podgorica airport mentioned above, its safety record has been unsullied during its 10 years of operation. It has code-share agreements with Adria, Austrian and JAT Airways.
