History

The IATA code of the airport is still TGD because Podgorica was named Titograd (after Josip Broz Tito) from 1946 to 1992. Josip Broz Tito (Cyrillic: Јосип Броз Тито, May 7, 1892 (May 25th according to official birth certificate) – May 4, 1980) was the leader of the Second Yugoslavia, which lasted from 1943 until 1991. ... 1946 (MCMXLVI) was a common year starting on Tuesday. ... 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...


Military usage

Podgorica airport is a public airport, but shares the main runway with nearby Podgorica Military Air Base.


Airport actually has two runways, but 08/26 runway is unused by civilian planes, as it is barely marked and only 15m wide. It mainly served as a connection between main runway and Šipčanik hill, which doubles as an underground aircraft shelter. As Šipčanik shelter got seriosely damaged during 1999 NATO bombing campaign, and is going to be converted to a wine cave by Plantaže company, it is unclear what will be the use of 08/26 runway. The term Kosovo War or Kosovo Conflict is often used to describe two sequential and at times parallel armed conflicts (a civil war followed by an international war) in the southern Serbian province called Kosovo (officially Kosovo and Metohia), part of the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. ...

The old terminal

As air traffic in Montenegro saw rapid increase in recent years, the now called "old" passenger terminal, a small, single-storey building, with one international and one domestic departure gate, has became inadequate. This led to building the entirely new terminal. The old terminal building is now used for medical staff, airlines offices, VIP lounge, press conference hall. Central part of old terminal will be used as a museum-exhibition center which will show the long history of aviation in Montenegro.

The airport handles both domestic flights in Montenegro and international flights within Europe. As Montenegro's two main airports are mearly 80 km away from each other, there are no regular passenger flights within Montenegro. Domestic flights have been reduced to charter flights and General aviation, and all regular traffic is treated as international.
