The air route with Luxembourg has not been terminated; instead, it has been temporarily suspended,” stated Fetija Kalač, the president of the Information and Cultural Center of Montenegro (IKCCG) in Luxembourg.

Kalač denied the information that the route between Podgorica and Luxembourg has been terminated and emphasized that “Luxair has responsible partners.”

“In response to the information reported by the media about the discontinuation of the Podgorica-Luxembourg air route, for accuracy, we inform the public that the information about the discontinuation of the air route is not accurate. In a meeting we had with representatives of Luxair, it was noted that Luxair is facing a shortage of aircraft this year and is, accordingly, focusing on key tourist destinations. From April onwards, Luxair will have flights on the Luxembourg-Tivat route twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with two types of aircraft, Boeing 737-800 and Companie LG-463,” Kalač stated.

According to her, since tourism is one of the strategic branches of development, contributing to almost a third of Montenegro’s GDP, the state needs to create conditions for extending the season and increasing the number of overnight stays and guest spending per day.

“The new government should direct its activities towards the development of high-quality offerings, both in terms of tourism and improving Montenegro’s accessibility. The temporary suspension of air traffic with Podgorica is the result of improper engagement by individuals, including NTO Director Ana Tripković and her advisors. With the support of the right institutions and partners, Luxair will continue to fly to Podgorica, and the NTO should engage in promoting, primarily through digital communication channels, and create conditions for joint marketing activities with airlines and tour operators. We believe that Prime Minister Milojko Spajić, by fulfilling his promises, will take this challenge seriously and encourage Podgorica Airport to collaborate with Luxair to solve this problem,” Kalač emphasized.
