History

The airline was founded on 24 October 1994 by the government of Montenegro, but the first aircraft, a Fokker 28 Mk4000 (nicknamed "Lovćen") was only purchased in the autumn of 1996 and the first flight was made on 7 May 1997 at exactly 10:30 p.m. between Podgorica and Bari, Italy. Another Fokker 28 Mk4000 was purchased in July, 1998. A temporary ban on flights within the European Union was lifted on 23 October 1999. New flights began to Frankfurt, Germany. At the end of that year, Montenegro Airlines established flights to Zurich, Ljubljana, Skopje, Istanbul and Budapest. In April 2000, Montenegro Airlines became a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). In June, 2000 the first Fokker F100 aircraft was delivered to Podgorica Airport. Montenegro Airlines purchased their second Fokker F100 in May, 2001, and their third in June, 2002. Their fourth Fokker F100 was purchased in the beginning of 2003.

Loss of Serbian market

After the split of Montenegro from Serbia through a peaceful referendum Serbia became an international market for Montenegrin companies and international laws applied. Therefore Montenegro had to cease flight from Belgrade in Serbia to other countries (excluding flight from and to Montenegro). The airline lost its most profitable line Zurich - Belgrade. This resulted in heavy yearly losses. In order to salvage these destinations Montenegro Airlines tried to register another airline in Serbia, Master Airways however it was unsuccessful. Master Airways is a Montenegrin airline based in Serbia. ...


Meanwhile a scandal was erupting between the dealings of the airlines CEO with an Albanian airline. The CEO is under corruptions charges.
