Tivat – Usual shift of guests on Montenegrin coast, in Saturday which, else, is the most frequent day in the week on Tivat airport, has brought a new absolute record in daily traffic.
According to the words of the director Ranko Boskovic on the runway of Tivat airport day before yesterday 34 big traveling planes on regular and carter lines and three small airplanes from the segment of the so-called general aviation landed. Through the terminal building of the airport in Saturday they had totally 9.640 passengers, of whom 5.050 of them came in, and 4.590 of them left Montenegro.
– With that we have made a new absolute record in the scope of daily traffic., so far the best result we had on August 12th last year when daily traffic was 9.138 passengers – said Boskovic yesterday adding that he is especially glad because of the fact that the record was broken so early, and that even better results should be expected, because the high season in Montenegro is about the begin.
– Good indicator of the success of this year’s season is the fact that in Saturday we had 5.050 passengers who came, while the biggest so far result of the arrival in one day was 4.700 passengers. Otherwise, for six months in this year airport Tivat has noted a total traffic of 205.038 passengers, which is 50, 04% more than at the same period last year – pointed out Boskovic. As he added the current scope of traffic is such that hey are not accepting new traveling planes in their schedule of flights, and because of the crowd they are forced to reject the greatest part of business aviation and to redirect them to Podgorica.
Boksovic said that the biggest problem at the moment are great delays in arrival of Russian transporters because of which the passengers wait for several hours at the airport or in the land in building.
– Through the management of PE Airports of Montenegro we will try to overcome this problem and to minimize the delays of the arrival of Russian companies. Otherwise we will have to redirect them too to Podgorica – said Boskovic.
