, ) is an international airport
located 11 km (7 miles) south of Podgorica
. It is the main hub
for Montenegro Airlines
It is one of two public airports in Montenegro, the other being Tivat Airport
. Both are operated by the state-owned company Airports of Montenegro (Аеродроми Црне Горе, Aerodromi Crne Gore
). The airport is sometimes called Golubovci Airport
by the locals, as the town of Golubovci
is in close proximity. Airports Council International
awarded Podgorica the best airport under 1 million passengers in 2007.
The IATA code of the airport is still TGD
because Podgorica was named T
(after Josip Broz Tito
) from 1946 to 1992, during which time the airport opened.
The airport handles domestic flights within Montenegro
as well as international flights. As Montenegro's two main airports are merely 80 km apart, there are no regular passenger domestic flights. Domestic flights have been reduced to charter flights and general aviation
, and all scheduled traffic is international.
There are daily scheduled flights to various European destinations. During the summer season, there are many charter flights and air connections to various major cities in the world. The flight to Belgrade airport has traditionally accounted for majority of the traffic at the airport, but the percentage is decreasing.
