Low-cost carrier Ryanair will start flying between Montenegro's Podgorica and London as of April 1, 2014, introducing two flights a week, the Montenegrin tourism ministry said on Nov 21. Podgorica is one of the 12 new routes Ryanair is opening from London's Stansted in April.
Ryanair already operates flights from Podgorica to Brussels, also twice a week. The airliner operates the existing flights during the IATA season (March-October) - the flights to London will also take place during this period.
Ryanair’s Maria Macken was quoted as saying in the ministry's statement that ticket sales for the London-Podgorica flights will begin on Nov 22, starting at EUR 27 (it was not immediately clear whether this is the return price).
Tourism minister Branimir Gvozdenovic said Montenegro's two international airports - in the capital Podgorica and the Adriatic town of Tivat, serviced 8.2% more passengers and 6.5% more flights in the first ten months of 2013. He added the two airports are connected to some 30 destinations across the world.
